It is encouraging to note that in compiling 1993’s superlative Greatest Hits set, four tracks from this blinder of an album are included, more than from any other. This is the ideal starting point for Tom Petty students, and then you can acquire all his other albums. For those unfamiliar, he is a rock ‘n’ roll Roger McGuinn, complete with Rickenbacker guitar Those who are already aware of him will know that he has the knack of writing some of the best middle eight hooks ever heard, and that he has an addictive voice and a knock-out supporting band. Hard to pick this out from any of his albums.
Tracks: Refugee; Here Comes The Girl; Even The Losers; Century City; Don’t Do Me Like That; What Are You Doin’ In My Life?; Louisiana Rain....
