Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers-Playback is so worth it, there are like 92 songs on six cds it is so cool.
There are all the well know classics and also b-sides and songs that didn't make the cut that have never been released before. There is also a small book giving the story of the Heartbreakers and liner notes on the songs. I absolutly love it and have played it over and over again.
This is a very nice overview of the career of this FANTASTIC band. But be warned that some versions of the early songs are shorter edited versions. But after listening to those songs you will just want to go buy those albums for the long versions!

do not bother. i bought this album/albums thinking i would have a great alternative view on the original harry smith recordings, boy what a waist of time. first of all the box set was expensive, even though it did come with a cool book and a couple of dvd's. it was a real let down. i sure it must of been cool to be at the concerts where these selected songs were recorded with todays pop/alt/indie stars, but do not waste your money on this expensive box set. do your self a favor and just buy the original harry smith anthology of american folk music. it is cheaper and you get the original artists with a bit of history thrown it. that is a much better way to go. overall i wish i would have stayed away from this "revisited" set, i would have saved close to $100
