Greatest Hits is a compilation album by American rock band Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers, originally released in November 1993 by Geffen Records.

Greatest Hits albums have long been a record cash grab. But they also serve a purpose, focusing on the hits, they crystalise the essence of an artist and cement their enduring public persona.

Petty resisted the idea for years, but eventually relented, and the album has since been so successful that it reached Diamond status in America (over 10 million sales). Much of the success was due to the monster single “Mary Jane’s Last Dance”, one of two new tracks on the album (the other being the cover “Something In The Air”).

The restless double octave guitar lick that starts “American Girl” is also the start of this album, and gives the album an undeniable energy that continues throughout the gorgeous “Here Comes My Girl”, the aching “The Waiting”, and even the dopy “Don’t Do Me Like That”.

By the time the Jeff Lynne era of sheen arrives with “Free Fallin’” and “Into The Great Wide Open”, the urgency has waned, but the craftsmanship hasn’t. The collection proves that Petty’s attention to melody and a wryly concise turn of phrase makes him a continually underrated companion to his fellow American cultural commentators like Springsteen.

Greatest Hits is as satisfying an introduction to Tom Petty (and rock ‘n’ roll) as you’re likely to get.

Check out the tracks: “American Girl”; “Refugee”; “Even The Losers”; “The Waiting”; “Free Fallin’”; “Learning To Fly” and “Mary Jane’s Last Dance”.

This album is now available on vinyl for the very first time!

This double LP housed in a gatefold sleeve with remastered audio is pressed in Europe on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
