Petty, Heartbreakers & Musical Magic!
Music Video's - Miniature Musical Movies
Tom Petty and his Heartbreakers are a true "Legend In Their Time" I purchased this DVD because Mr. Petty became my all time favorite songwriter in 1979 surpassing Neil Young. (with the exception of "Powder Finger" Love you Neil!) It was Tom's "Law Suit Tour" and "The Wild One, Forever" that slayed my heart yet still having no idea of Petty Musical Magic yet to come. "The Waiting" was hardest part! Believe me, there is nothing "Petty" about this songwriter! Oh... except his last name. As I take Tom as a "Highway Companion" I admit I do not care about time. The gift of his songs keep coming on with the perpetual Heartbreak of his band lingering on! I love you Tom, your Heartbreakers & Your Honorary Heartbeaker, Stevie. (Even though I'm totally Jello of her!)

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - Playback
What can I say? This is Tom Petty. It's gotta be awesome! And it is! From his earliest videos to his later ones including "Don't Come Around Here No More", it is a fun video to watch. Petty was a pioneer in videos before even MTV. And his videos don't need all the visual hoopla to be entertaining. You just need Tom Petty and his music. He does have a few that are a little quirky, and the "Don't Come Around Here No More" video is plain off the wall but very imaginative! It is a take on Alice in Wonderland with Petty as the Mad Hatter. It's my personal favorite. There is also one with Johnny Depp as an up and coming star and Tom appears in the video as his roadie. Too funny! Look for Tom to be riding a motorcycle in this one with Depp on the back. Very cool! And "Mary Jane's Last Dance" is on the verge of eery with Kim Basinger as a corpse. The ending of this video is very unexpected! Yeah, I have lost count of how many times I have watched this video! I love it!Read full review

Tom Petty: Playback DVD
WOW..it is so much better with the DVD over CD. A picture is truly worth 1,000. words. Great to buy the CD and learn the words...but the visual is soooo much better. My purchase was prior to the upcoming concert in Tampa, Fl on July 16, 2008. This is the perfect way to GET READY. Stereo sound and picture quality are PERFECT. BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE.

Classic Tom Petty music videos
I love this dvd. I have watched it from begining to end several times since I have bought it. If you are a die hard Tom Petty fan. Then this dvd is a must for your collection! It doesn't have anything but videos. If you are looking for a documentary this isn't the dvd. You would be looking for "Running down a dream".

Fantastic Collection of Music!
This is a great DVD! Tom Petty's music videos are like mini-movies, and I always loved watching them, even as a kid. This is a wonderful collection of some of Tom Petty's greatest stuff!
