Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, "Damn the Torpedoes (Deluxe Edition)" Petty's breakthrough album gets the snazzy upgrade treatment on this two-disc set. The first is a remastered version of "Damn," which spawned the Petty classics "Refugee," "Here Comes My Girl," and "Don't Do Me Like That," among others. The second collects an intriguing grab bag of B-sides, live tracks, alternate takes, demos, and previously unreleased tunes from the period, including at least one lost classic in "Surrender."
