How to beat the holiday shopping shuffle
It's that time of year again. Time to take that hard earned cash and turn it into gifts for your loved ones. Or at least the ones you're supposed to love.

Anyway, as far as gift giving goes, what better gift to give than the gift of music? For Mom there's always Michael Bolton. Dad likes the oldies, and the siblings can always go for the Pearl Jam imitation of the week.

But if your family and friends actually have good taste in music, or you just want to teach them a thing or two, here's your chance to get them something, with a little spunk this holiday season.

Tom Petty | Playback | MCA
This six disc collection of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers contains just about every piece a Petty enthusiast could ever want. It has three discs of regular release material, one of them a B-sides compilation, and two others of previously unreleased material. For hours of stoned enjoyment!
