Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers - Into The Great Wide Open album
future was wide open (Oh). Into the great wide open Under them skies of blue Out in the great wide open A rebel without a clue Into the great wide open Under them skies of blue Into the great wide open A rebel without a clue (Ayy). About Into the Great Wide Open. One of Petty’s most vivid story songs chronicling the demise of a guitar-toting rebel without a clue who comes to Los Angeles and gets eaten alive by the record industry. That was one of the first ones I wrote for the album. I really liked the video to that, one of the only times I’ve ever felt fulfilled by a video. The song was such a narrative that the video was a piece of cake to make. Lead guitar Mike Campbell (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers). Bass, backing vocals Howie Epstein.
Into the Great Wide Open is the eighth studio album by American rock band Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, first released in 1991. The album was the band's last with MCA Records. The album was the second Petty produced with Jeff Lynne after the success of Full Moon Fever. The first single, "Learning to Fly", became the band's joint longest-running No. 1 single (along with "The Waiting" from 1981's Hard Promises) on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, spending six weeks at the top spot
Tom Petty was a fan and even toured with them in 1988. Tom Petty remarked on the music video for this song, "I really liked the video to that, one of the only times I've ever felt fulfilled by a video. I even had people coming to me wanting to make it into a movie. Johnny Depp, Faye Dunaway and Tom Petty were featured in the video for this track.
For the follow-up, Into the Great Wide Open (released 25 years ago today, on July 2, 1991), Petty re-upped with Lynne and reunited the Heartbreakers. The results are about what you'd expect: more retro-minded rock ’n’ roll songs presented with modern sheen and maybe a hair more oomph than fans got on Full Moon Fever. Despite the lack of monster pop singles like Free Fallin’, which became Petty’s calling card, Into the Great Wide Open isn't an inferior sequel
Out in the great wide open, a rebel without a clue. HOW TO PLAY "Into The Great Wide Open".
The commercial success of Tom Petty’s solo album Full Moon Fever possibly encouraged him to invite his fellow Traveling Wilbury Jeff Lynne to coproduce Into the Great Wide Open alongside Petty and Heartbreaker Mike Campbell. Lynne’s years with ELO inform everything he does, and here he tightens and brightens The Heartbreakers' sound until the harmonies are built like brick walls and the playing sounds as treated as possible.
