Tom Petty wrote:I want to take the Heartbreakers and whoever else I need to reproduce every sound in a big way. I would like to go out there and perform the entire album as it was originally conceived with all of the songs.
"Tom has been considering releasing a deluxe package to include the missing songs in addition to re-mastered versions of existing tracks, and he admits that there are several songs that no one has ever heard, including one featuring the vocals of Carl Wilson from the Beach Boys.
Talking about the possible release, he told Rolling Stone magazine: "I think I put four of the ['Wildflowers' outtakes] on the 'She's The One' soundtrack just to fill out the album, but they were very hastily mixed. Take 'Climb That Hill.' There's a version of that on 'She's The One', but the 'Wildflowers' one I think is extremely better. I'm gonna put that out.
"'Hung Up And Overdue' is another one we remixed and it turned into an epic. I had Carl Wilson [of the Beach Boys] and [Heartbreakers bassist] Howie Epstein singing quite a bit of harmony that didn't come through on the original. Then again, there's probably six songs that nobody has heard. There's 11 or 12 [new] songs on the album. I think people are going to like it a lot. I like it a lot."
