I got this in 2 days ago and I have loved watching it. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers made 2 of the greatest music videos of all time with "Don't Come Around Here No More" and "Mary Jane's Last Dance". When I saw the first one back in the 80's, I never forgot it. It was one of the best takes I've ever seen taken of Alice in Wonderland. The second was a classic as well. When a person sees it, they don't forget them. I also liked the video for "Into the Wide Open" as well. When I saw it back in the 80's, I never forgot that scene where Eddie played by Johnny Depp blows his nose at the crowd. This is a must have for any fan of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The difference between these videos and the ones put out today is that they will not be remembered 20 years from now and these always will be. I also noticed on many of the videos that Petty's character had on a jacket and a big hat. If you don't agree with what I'm saying, it means you don't want to admit what music has come down to these days which is it is all about sex. While it might sell Cds fast, in the long run it won't be remembered.
