The Best of Everything is the first career-spanning collection of all of Tom Petty’s hits with The Heartbreakers, his solo work, and Mudcrutch.
The 38-track, two-disc set also features two previously unreleased tracks: the poignant and autobiographical “For Real” and the collection’s lead single—an alternate version of the title track, which restores a never-heard second verse to the song that was originally recorded for the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ 1985 album, Southern Accents. This collection also features an essay on Petty written especially for this compilation by Academy Award-winning screenwriter, director, author, and journalist Cameron Crowe.
All 38 recordings on The Best of Everything have been remastered for this collection from pristine transfers of the original studio masters.
Petty was a member of Local 47 (Los Angeles, CA) until his death in 2017.
