Apparently, death hasn’t gotten in the way of Tom Petty’s ability to make hit music.
Three years after Petty died of an accidental drug overdose, the reissue of his 1994 album “Wildflowers” has debuted at the top of Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart. The achievement marks the sixth time a Petty album has made it to number one.
The re-release, called “Wildflowers and All the Rest,” features all the songs Petty recorded for the original album, which he’d planned to release as a two-CD set. However, he ended up cutting it down to a single CD at the urging of his label.
In the future, do you think songs will still be released as part of an album? What’s your favorite posthumous album?
