Billboard -- March 2, 1985 Southern Accents "Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: Southern Accents
Don't Come Around Here No More is the return of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. From the upcoming album Southern Accents, the song and the album mark numerous firsts.
The sixth album for Petty and the band since 1982's Long After Dark, Southhern Accents' highlights include collaborations with Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and Robbie Robertson of The Band fame. Tom Petty and Dave Stewart co-wrote three of the album's nine tracks, combining with long-time Petty-Heartbreakers' co-producer Jimmy Iovine on the production of the three songs, including Don't Come Around Here No More.
Robbie Robertson co-produced with Petty and Iovine "The Best Of Everything" for the album and on the track, Richard Manuel and Garth Hudson, also formerly of The Band, make special guest appearances on backing vocals and keyboards, respectively.
Southern Accents is the latest progress report from Petty and The Heartbreakers ... Mike Campbell, guitars; Stan Lynch, drums; Benmont Tench, keyboards; and Howie Epstein, bass. And the progress is what you would expect from one of rock's most creatve bands that has been responsible for Don't Do Me Like That, Refugee, You Got Lucky, American Girl, Breakdown, I Need To Know, Listen To Her Heart, Even The Losers, The Waiting, and so many more. Their's is a style and musical signature that is not only instantly recognizable, but has also earned them the plaudits of critics and fans alike as well as scores of platinum and gold certifications. When the Recording Industry Association of America (R.I.A.A.) initiated their multi-platinum certifications in 1984, Tom and the group's Damn the Torpedoes, of course, was one of the first recognized.
Southern Accents is the logical extension of the group's previous albums. Recorded in Tom's home studio, it is the powerful work of a band that has carved out their turf and still possesses the confidence to continue to grow."
