Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Southern Accents (MCA).
This outfit have never cut a bummer of an album. They have been making magic music for years and this set doesn't alter that fact. The title track is a gem along with Don't Come Around Here Anymore. The strange thing about Tom Petty is just why he has never cracked it to any great degree in Britain. Of the nine tracks there wasn't a real bad ones. They are an outfit I'd like to see in concert.
