Digitally remastered edition of this classic 1979 album. Damn The Torpedoes catapulted Petty and company into the first rank of American Rock acts. It is not hard to be mindful why. With a slate of driving songs destined to turn out to be FM staples (“Refugee,” “Here Comes My Girl,” “Even the Losers,” “Do not Do Me Like That”), it is an album that plays just like half a greatest-hits collection. Fusing a rootsy sensibility heavy with Dylan and Byrds affectations together with his own pop instincts (honed by early stints with Mudcrutch and Dwight Twilley) and coupling them with one among rock’s most consistently underrated powerhouses, the Heartbreakers, Petty’s throwback traditionalism oddly found him riding the crest of the brand new wave within the late ’70s.
