Pickin' on Petty features country-style instrumental versions of some of roots-rocker Tom Petty's best-known hits; consumers should be aware that these are not the original versions, and that Petty himself is not involved in this project. Having said that, these versions aren't bad if you don't mind that they tend to stick close to the melodies, not offering much in the way of solo fireworks. However, they do demonstrate Petty's immense talent for good, solid songcraft.
