    Opening paragraph from the book inside the 6cd box set called, Playback 1973-93

    "When the first album by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers appeared in 1976, it seemed to come out of nowhere. Literally nowhere. Listening to that record-which sounded shockingly alive and immediate in a time full of disco and Kiss and mellow Californians remaking oldies-it was very hard to figure out where this band came from. The airy vocal harmonies and bright guitars suggested the west coast, but the gutsiness edging into nastiness seemed like what was happening in New York. The songs had an economy right out of England, but the voice in the lyrics was unmistakably American....

    Once, talking about being lumped in with Springsteen, Mellencamp, and Seger in rock critic shorthand. Petty said "I think I'm more, dare I say - eccentric than those guys. I know all those people quite well and I think that they're terrific...I was into that straight rock thing for a longtime. However I don't think that's the whole ball of wax. I think there's more to it than that."

    The first time I heard anything by T.P. was at a friends house around 1979 or 1980. He put on "Damn the Torpedoes" which was still fairly new and I heard it then for the first time. Wham! Instant fan!
