  3. Dave from Cardiff, Wales No relation to the Pink Floyd hit of the same name, but to an extent I think it tries to convey the same meaning - of someone trying something out for the first time, finding it all hard to come to turns with - (in the words of Tom Petty's version) "I'm learning to fly, but I ain't got wings", but at the same time.

Tom Petty has never hid his admiration for The Byrds and he does a pretty good stab at repilcating their sounds, but to be honest he is an artist in his own right and this album is just right for me. The remastering is excellent, my choice of favourite tracks are, The Waiting, I Won't Back Down, Free Fallin', Learning To Fly and the duet with /5(23).
