TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS — Hard Promises (Backstreet-MCA) — This rock group is pretty much at its peak. The LP jumps with electricity as the quintet churns through 10 songs. There’s a lot of chatter about “new directions” for rock thse days, but Petty’s boys demonstrate there’s still plenty of life left in basic rock — if it’s done right.
