Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are local for me. They’re from just up the road in Gainesville, Florida. Damn the Torpedoes is the third album from the band and was released in 1979. This is the album where Tom Petty informs us that we don’t have to live like a refugee and he doesn’t want us to do him like that. It was the bands first top 10 album and may have been kept from the top spot by some pesky album called The Wall by the no eyebrow lead Pink Floyd. Damn the luck. If you even remotely like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, you’ll probably like this album. I did.
