Anniversary album: Self-titled debut LP
Released: 10 November 1976 – 45 years ago today

AllMusic says: “At the time Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ debut was
released in 1976, they were fresh enough to almost be considered punk.
They weren’t as reckless or visionary as the Ramones, but they shared a
similar love for pure ’60s rock and, for the Heartbreakers, that meant
embracing the Byrds as much as the Stones. And that’s pretty much what
this album is — tuneful jangle balanced by a tough garage swagger.”

Full review here. Score: 4.5/5.

Turn Up The Volume: Tom Petty was a pure all-around Americana
rocker at heart. Single Anything That’s Rock ‘N’ Roll is an
absolute classic in my book.
