Album: Tom Petty, Damn the Torpedoes (Deluxe Edition) (Geffen)
Sunday 07 November 2010
Petty's "breakthrough" album, his third, from 1979, the big-sounding, hi-gloss, monster-drumming Jimmy Iovine production which blasted the 'breakers out of their UK-only taste corner and propelled their leader towards American superstardom on the back of "Refugee".
It's good stuff, but for all its anguish it does lack the skinned-back punch and hipness of the debut, which will always resonate more deeply in British hearts. Now that was a record. This "Deluxe Edition" comes with the obligatory bonus studio material and live cuts.
