The accomplishment marks the first time in their nearly 37-year recording career that Petty and company have topped the all-genre list.  Classic rock continues its reign with Eric Clapton's The Breeze: An Appreciation of JJ Cale following at number two with 61,000 in sales. Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 is a close number three, with sales of 60,000.  The compilation soundtrack features songs from Blue Swede, The Raspberries, Redbone, 10cc, and other '70s artists.
