Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - Damn the Torpedoes
This is the record that made Tom Petty a rock star. If you add a couple of other songs to about half this record you have his greatest hits. This is the one that spawned: "Refugee," "Here Comes My Girl," "Even the Losers," and "Don't Do Me Like That." Listening to this record again reminded me of how great the Heartbreakers were. Of all the incarnations of the band this has to be the strongest. There is also that great voice over that Petty left on the record , "it's just the normal noises in here," that always makes first time listeners think there is a glitch with the record.
