Rock And Roll: LeRoi's Short Reviews
By LeRoi
The Penny Pitch -- July-August 1981

★★★★ | Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | Hard Promises | MCA/Backstreet 5760 | $8.98 List | Produced by Tom Petty & Jimmy Iovine
The main reason I like this record is I had my doubt that Petty could follow up the Torpedos album this strong. This is a bona fide good follow-up with two or three strong singles and should finally establish Petty as a real star.
