Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: Damn the Torpedoes
Part of Eagle Rock Entertainment’s acclaimed Classic Album DVD series, this one proved to be the breakthrough album for these rockers from Florida. Members of the band, producers, engineers and critics all unweave the creative process behind this all-American rock’n’roll gem. New interviews with co-producer Jimmy Iovine, engineer Shelly Yakus and Heartbreakers Tom Petty, Ron Blair, Benmont Tench and Mike Campbell provide some illuminating insights about the hooks, melodies, and hardships behind such hits as “Refugee,” “Don’t Do Me Like That,” “Here Comes My Girl” and “Even the Losers.” (Eagle Rock Entertainment).
