CD Review: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers


Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Damn the Torpedoes

By David Chiu

If one had to find the definitive Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers album, it would undoubtedly be 1979’s Damn the Torpedoes. That album alone contained four songs that have since become rock staples: “Refugee,” “Don’t Do Me Like That,” “Here Comes My Girl” and “Even the Losers.” Of course even those aforementioned songs are complemented by solid underrated tracks in their own right like “Shadow of a Doubt” and “Century City.” Accompanying the original album in this deluxe version a disc’s worth of bonus tracks, including the previously unreleased tracks “Nowhere” and “Surrender,” a live version of Shadow of a Doubt, and an alternate take of Refugee.
