PLAYBACK spans 20 years of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' career, from 1973 to 1993. Disc one, titled "The Big Jangle," features Petty's popular early songs, such as "Breakdown," "Refugee" and "The Waiting," and is as close to rock & roll perfection as you're likely to come.
Packed with more than 90 songs PLAYBACK is the definitive Petty document. In addition to his many hits, PLAYBACK features a few oddball cuts. There's a hilarious live version of The Count Five's "Psychotic Reaction," sung by drummer Stan Lynch, as well as a demo version of Petty's hit "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around," sans Fleetwood Mac vocalist, Stevie Nicks. Another bonus to Petty fans is the inclusion of excellent historical liner notes penned by lauded music critic Bill Flanagan.
Professional Reviews
Spin (2/96, pp.85-86) - 8 - Very Good - "...Petty's pure rock is always there as an option, shining up your backyard when you're sick and tired of trends and experiments....It's the voice of a rock pack-rat into everything from Elvis to Nirvana..."
Q (1/96, p.148) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...One of the most intuitively coherent of American heartland rock'n'roll groups....The Heartbreakers' back catalogue has strength, depth and longevity..."
Village Voice (2/20/96) - Tied for #7 on the Reissues list of Village Voice's 1995 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.
Artist Bio
Tom Petty & The HeartbreakersNot many artists can match Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers' long record of commercial success along with a simultaneous period of creative growth and critical acclaim.In April 1996, Petty received UCLA's George & Ira Gershwin Award For Lifetime Musical Achievement. Previous recipients of the university's award include Ray Charles and Ella Fitzgerald. Petty was the first artist of the rock era to earn this distinction. "I may not own any George and Ira Gershwin records," said Petty at the ceremony, "but I'm honored to be here and I want to thank my fans for showing up at my concerts from time to time."In 1999, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers received their own star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood, an honor that acknowledges both their musical achievements and their humanitarian involvement with such organizations as Greenpeace, the National Veteran's Foundation, USA Harvest, Rock & Wrap It Up, and AmFAR (the American Foundation for AIDS Research).Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers--hailing from Gainesville, Florida before officially forming in Los Angeles--kicked the musical doldrums of the mid-'70s in the face with their 1976 self-titled debut album. It featured a stripped-down-but-accomplished brand of rock that blended jumpy rhythm & blues rhythms, ringing guitars and keyboards, over which Petty grabbed listeners by their throats with his disarmingly blunt lyrics and extremely direct vocal style. Still, it took America a full year to catch up to the album.1978's follow up, You're Gonna Get It!, proved the debut album's intensity was no fluke. Marking the band's first gold album, it featured the singles "Listen to Her Heart" and "I Need to Know." Success followed success (including Tom's debut solo album and his appearances as a member of The Traveling Wilbury's, as well as more hits with The Heartbreakers).
