JOHN EMMS blu-ray review-TOM PETTY/HEARTBREAKERS-DAMN THE TORPEDOS/”No one cares enough to make a classic these days”

When you watch this it becomes apparent through new interviews and archival studio footage from Petty, producer Jimmy Iovine, and the rest of The Heartbreakers that you have to sweat the details to make a classic album

Now no one gives a shit about making a great classic album these days.

That’s why we have so much crap out there. Everyone including record companies just going  for the fast buck.  It’s piss on the creators/artists.  Hell,  no one lets talent develop anymore. These days Petty would not have had a chance to make this now classic third album. What I like about this blu-ray/dvd is Tom Petty, Mike Campbell and engineer Shelly Yakus go into details of how tracks were recorded and engineered.

Budding musicians wake up. It’s a great learning tool. There is also songwrititng sequences with Petty and Campbell. Plus all kinds of inside information from the Heartbreakers notably keyboard man Benmont Tench. In the end Petty and Heartbreakers stuck by their now vintage sound, they still do on their new cd MOJO. Yes even the losers get lucky sometimes.

Fine docmentary from Eagle Rock
