EDITORS’ NOTES

As mellow as Tom Petty always manages to sound, his definitive work with The Heartbreakers—compiled here from 1976 to 1993—is actually an unruly cross-section of bluesy Southern twang, sun-baked California jangle and British Invasion–style pop sophistication. It all coalesces into some of the sharpest, warmest, most resonant songwriting in US rock history. For all his trademark nonchalance (“Don’t Do Me Like That,” “Free Fallin’” etc.), the cruise-controlled rocker cranks up the jittery propulsion on “I Need to Know” and the eternal anthem that is “American Girl.”
