Broken Record with Rick Rubin, Malcolm Gladwell, Bruce Headlam and Justin Richmond

Oct 15 2020 • 57 mins

Tom Petty crafted another of his many perfect albums back in 1994, this time with Rick Rubin producing. Wildflowers was released as a single disc, Petty's first for Warner Brothers. But Petty had always intended for it to be a double record. Those unreleased songs have been the holy grail for Petty fans for years. And now they're finally being released, thanks to the careful work of Tom's daughter, Adria Petty. In this special episode of Broken Record, Rick Rubin talks to Adria about her memories of her dad and the hard curatorial work of putting together the new box set Wildflowers & All The Rest.
