Wildflowers in many ways changed Tom Petty’s creative life—as a recording artist, collaborator and band leader—while a profound, personal crisis transformed the stories and emotional thrust in his songs. Tom ultimately wrote more songs than he could release at the time. In fact, Tom, Rubin and Campbell completed the album as a double CD with 25 songs, nearly two hours of music, but his label advised restraint. Released on November 1, 1994, Wildflowers —a single CD with 15 songs, still more than an
hour in length—was Tom’s most acutely confessional album to date.
Wildflowers & All The Rest, is the long-awaited Wildflowers reissue and comprehensive collection of an era. Tom’s vision of the project is finally becoming a reality due to the commitment of his loving family, band mates and collaborators who helped unearth many previously unheard gems. The compilation was curated by Tom’s daughters, Adria and Annakim Petty and his wife Dana Petty who call it, “Many, many hours of pure sonic joy,” as well as Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench , and was produced by Tom’s longtime engineer and co-producer Ryan Ulyate .
