Performer Notes
  • Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Tom Petty (vocals, guitars, keyboards); Benmobt Tench (vocals, keyboards); Howie Epstein (vocals, bass); Stan Lynch (vocals, drums); Mike Campbell (guitar, keyboards, bass).

  • Personnel: Tom Petty (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Mike Campbell (guitar, keyboards); Benmont Tench (keyboards, background vocals); Stan Lynch (drums, background vocals); Howie Epstein, Phil Seymour (background vocals).
  • In the 1970s and '80s, amid the rise of New Wave and synth pop, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers almost single-handedly brought old-school power-pop and garage-rock musical values into the mainstream. The roots-conscious Floridians are often regarded as "heartland rockers," and tunes like the jangling, Byrds-like "American Girl" certainly make a case for that appellation. At the same time, "Don't Come Around Here No More" and "You Got Lucky" eagerly expand that stylistic template with haunting atmospherics and neo-psychedelic touches.
  • GREATEST HITS offers a handy, hook-laden, single-disc summary of this great American band. It traverses the Heartbreakers' journey from raw, lean '70s enfants terribles to elder rock-&-roll statesmen. Conveniently, it also includes the two best Heartbreakers tunes never to grace one of their studio albums--"Mary Jane's Last Dance" and the Petty/Stevie Nicks duet, "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around."

Professional Reviews
Spin (1/94, p.76) - Highly Recommended - "...Petty's always had a real ear for the cultural charms of new-Americana--its freeway overpasses, tattoos, and taco shops--which he brilliantly mythologized..."

Q (12/93, p.143) - 4 Stars - Excellent

This is an AWESOME cd, with all of Tom Pettys best songs, if you are only going to get one album of his, this is it. Filled iwth good songs like Mary Janes last dance, Learning to fly, and many more. Well styled classic rock, with great vocals, this is an album that also needs to be passed down to younger generations
