Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Southern Accents (1985)
A difficult album this, apparently. But a rewarding one. I can never name a favourite album by Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers (though the sentimental fav is probably Damn The Torpedoes) but some days this comes close, a special album at any rate. From a band that has a career full of highlights. I didn’t really know this album for a while – but I knew the highlights from the live album that came from the accompanying tour. It’s funny with Tom Petty. I didn’t always consider him one of the greats in my life, but I see now he’s been consistent and wonderful. So many fantastic songs and what a band!
