Great CD with coverage of his early work and live tracks and unrelased studio recording.

Petty was a great songwriter and this collection, led by his daughter, does him - and his fans - proud. A wealth of new material/new versions - and interesting accompanying notes/commentary.
The only downside is that it makes you realise that we're not going to get any new Petty and the Heartbreakers albums. An era has ended.
I've given it four stars solely because I've not yet played it all. Given the strength of what I have seen/heard, any future revision would only be up to five stars.
