Angel Dream: Songs and Music from the Motion Picture SHE'S THE ONE
When asked for a song to include in writer-director Edward Burns' romantic comedy SHE'S THE ONE – which opened on this day in 1996 - Tom Petty responded with an entire album. Though nominally a film soundtrack, the accompanying Warner Bros. collection stands proudly with the singer-songwriter's best work of the 1990s. Cut with producer Rick Rubin and the ever-reliable Heartbreakers, ANGEL DREAM: SONGS AND MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE SHE’S THE ONE has a relaxed feel and eclectic mix of material (including covers of Beck and Lucinda Williams songs) that give the impression Petty was really enjoying himself. Which doesn't mean his customary craftsmanship is absent; the dozen tracks include such terrific originals as “Climb That Hill” and single “Walls (Circus),” which features guest vocals from Lindsey Buckingham.
