Billboard: Petty Gets Busy On New Album, Live Set

Petty Gets Busy On New Album, Live Set

Although they are not planning to tour this year, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers will instead be working on various projects, including a live album, a second "Greatest Hits" package and a new studio release. Due next year via Warner Bros., that set will be the follow-up to 2002's "The Last DJ," which debuted at No. 9 on The Billboard 200.

In an interview on the band's official Web site, Petty says he and touring sound engineer Robert Scovill are working on narrowing the live
material to a double-disc release. "We did a live record in '84 ("Pack Up the Plantation: Live!") and I never thought it was the great live album that this band should put out," Petty said. "So that's kind of another project we have going, to get this live album recorded and out at some point. If it went really quick, maybe it would be out this year."

Petty is also planning to release "Greatest Hits, Part II," possibly augmented with new songs, in the months ahead. The group previously issued "Greatest Hits" in 1993 and "Anthology: Through the Years" in 2000.

As well, Petty has completed eight of 10 radio programs for a series titled "Tom Petty's Buried Treasures" for the XM satellite radio channel. "It's going to be hour-long shows of music put together by whoever," Petty said. "It's mostly old music with an eye to turn people onto stuff, especially younger people who might not have heard this stuff."

In hopes of making available even more material to his fans, Petty also is planning to create a members-only area on the Web site. "There are so many hundreds and hundreds of bootlegs," he said. "I would kind of like to make them authorized. Not all of my fans will want bootlegs, but for those who do, I want to have that musical outlet on the Web site."


Anybody know what tracks would most likely make up the greatest hits pt II? I'm guessing it would start with his Warner material from Wildflowers. That and his most recent effort "The Last DJ" are really the only two from that era that I know any of the songs from.

I'd say it would have the songs that were on Anthology: Through the Years but was not on his first Greatest Hits. I never bought Anthology so I'd get Gr. Hits II.

Possible contenders include:
Hometown Blues
Wild One, Forever
Too Much Ain't Enough
Woman in Love (It's Not Me)
Stop Draggin' My Heart Around
Straight into Darkness
Change of Heart
Best of Everything
So You Want to Be a Rock & Roll Star
Jammin' Me
It'll All Work Out
Love Is a Long Road
Yer So Bad
Two Gunslingers
Waiting for Tonight

WB songs may include:
Walls (Circus) From She's The One
You Dont Know How It Feels
You Wreck Me
Its Good To Be King
Free Girl Now
Room at the Top
The Last DJ
