Don’t Do Me Like What?

with 8 comments

A quick heads-up from our friends at Pause & Play: Amazon has put up a listing for a deluxe edition of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers’ Damn the Torpedoes to be released by Geffen and Universal Music Enterprises. There’s no info other than a release date (October 12), but hopefully there’ll be some good vault material present.

Damn the Torpedoes was The Heartbreakers’ first LP for MCA, following the sale of Shelter Records to the label. It featured the band’s first Top 10 hit, “Don’t Do Me Like That.” Hit the jump to see the original track list for the album, as well as some speculative extra tracks to include.

  1. Petty has recently spoken of the possibility of releasing 5.1 mixes of his back catalogue; wouldn’t “Damn The Torpedoes” be a nice place to start, providing he could convince Universal to go along with him? Fingers crossed.

  2. I hope it won’t be a combo of the Eagle Rock DVD with the album. It has to be b-sides, outtakes, etc. Perhaps, there’s even a full live show from the period that could be released which did not have any tracks featured on the The Live Anthology.

  3. I guess the rights to this reverted to Universal? Didn’t his first few albums go to Warner?

  4. For bonus content, how about the original Mudcrutch version of “Don’t Do Me Like That?”

    @RoyalScam: I think that was just his first two albums, “Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers” and “You’re Gonna Get It!” Those two were originally on Shelter, then somehow Petty got the rights… they were reissued on his Gone Gator imprint, first through MCA, then through Warner.

  5. This is cool news. A few years ago when universal deluxe editions started, I read somewhere that petty hated record companies and there wasn’t very much left “in the vault” for a deluxe edition anyway. Hope Andy mckaie is involved with the project.

  6. I’d bet the house we’ll see a live show as the bonus disc. And I’ll be saving my money.
