Just last week, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers revisited Angel Dream (Songs and Music from the Motion Picture “She’s The One”), one of Petty’s few soundtrack projects over the course of his incredible career, to commemorate its 25th anniversary.

The remastered and expanded revisiting of the album included previously unreleased recordings from the sessions, such as “105 Degrees”:

Some pertinent quotes about the release, as featured on SiriusXM’s Tom Petty Radio on Thursday from Petty’s daughter, Adria, his wife Dana, engineer/co-producer Ryan Ulyate and Heartbreaker Benmont Tench:

“‘She’s The One’ was originally a great way to include some of the songs that didn’t make it on to Wildflowers, but it has its own thing to it, its own charm, and putting it out now in a restructured form makes for a sweet little treat. At the time in the studio, it was fun working as a band to improvise the scoring cues for the movie rather than playing to preset click tracks and a written score. And It was interesting to try to cut covers of others’ songs for a record, instead of learning covers just for live shows. We got a nice vibey version of Beck’s song and I’ve always loved Lucinda’s song ‘Change the Locks,’ so I was more than happy to cut it with our band. Oh, and this album has ‘Angel Dream’ on it, one of the loveliest songs Tom ever wrote.”—Benmont Tench

“There’s some cool stuff on this record that has never come out before. I especially love the JJ Cale song ‘13 Days.’ We had a lot of fun playing that song live and it’s great to have a recording of it from the studio. ‘Supernatural Radio’ is extended with some great jamming interplay within the band, which I’m very proud of. The Heartbreakers could be really amazing and spontaneous. I hope you enjoy these little gems as much as I do.”—Mike Campbell

“It seemed like we approached the whole thing with a very spontaneous mood. I like things that way, I don’t—I don’t like to over-plan too much. It was terrific fun, we had a great time doing it.”—Tom Petty (from the 1996 “She’s The One” EPK video interview)

“These songs are extremely special. I am grateful this record is getting the recognition it deserves. The remix Ryan Ulyate did sounds amazing, and the unreleased gems are a lovely bonus. Annakim, Adria, and I took a lot of time finding artwork that reflects the mood of the album. I think we finally achieved that with Alia Penner’s work. It is surreal and beautiful, just like life during that time.”—Dana Petty
