First single here: [youtu.be]

"On September 28, Reprise Records will release An American Treasure—a career-spanning Tom Petty box set. The 60-track set unveils dozens of previously unreleased recordings, alternate versions of classic songs, rarities, historic live performances and deep tracks that spotlight Tom’s remarkable depth and evolution as a revered and tremendously influential songwriter, recording artist and performer. An American Treasuremarks the first release of Tom Petty music since the artist’s tragic passing in October 2017.

The first single from An American Treasure is “Keep A Little Soul”—a previously unreleased recording from 1982 sessions that resulted in Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ classic album, Long After Dark.

Tom’s daughter, Adria Petty, and his wife, Dana Petty, were the primary catalysts for the commission, creation and release of An American Treasure­—a tribute and love letter pointing to the music in between the hits, and a strong musical portrait of the person they know in their hearts. Adria and Dana both serve as the project’s Executive Producers, and, together with Tom’s bandmates of 45 years, Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench, and his studio collaborator, Ryan Ulyate, curated the box set’s track list from Petty’s rich song catalog. Campbell, Tench and Ulyate also produced An American Treasure.

The creation of An American Treasure was a true labor of love, as Adria Petty and Dana Petty explain, “Everyone involved in this project chose each track with tremendous care and deep respect for the body of work Tom Petty created over the course of 40 years. He also accumulated a wealth of unreleased music in his vaults, and we have collectively uncovered one gem after another that will keep us all listening and discovering new facets of Tom’s talent for many years to come. We can’t wait to share with Tom’s fans this musical portrait of an artist who deeply affected our culture and indelibly touched the lives of fans the world over.”

Have always been a huge fan of Tom Petty's since a friend got me listening back in high school (early 80s).

Saw him live in Texas around that time -- the Long After Dark tour -- absolutely amazing. Perfect show, perfect sound.



same as it ever was

"The custom cover artwork for An American Treasure was created by prominent American artist Shepard Fairey from an image of Petty by renowned photographer Mark Seliger."

How many Tom Petty box sets does the world need? There are a bunch on amazon already, but I suggest that the 4 CD set of the Live Anthology is all you will ever need: [www.amazon.com] It's the best thing of it's kind I've ever heard.

I made a big stink about it when I first got it: [forums.macresource.com]

Not sure if you had a chance to read the description, but this is not some repackaging of the hits a la The Who:

Ask me again when it gets closer to release. I do know the tracks are listed individually at Amazon.

Excellent, a great birthday present for Mrs. C. She's a huge Petty fan (I'm a normal-sized Petty fan), and we were both glad to catch what wound up being his final show here last year.
