Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Hard Promises LP
I've been trying to amass the Tom Petty collection on vinyl, slowly but surely. I picked up the Record Store Day versions of the 1st two Heartbreakers albums a couple of years ago and I also grabbed that super fancy edition of Damn The Torpedoes. Right now there don't seem to be reissues planned for the rest, so I'm trying to secure copies.
I'm sure it would be easy to find them all in a used bin for a dollar or two, but then I'd probably end up with scuffed up records. I can't have this. I found Hard Promises on Discogs for $7. And it was still sealed! It's a promo, so there is a gold stamp in the upper left hand corner, but I'm OK with that. To have a brand new copy for so little money was a deal I couldn't pass up. So many great songs on this album, maybe not as many as are on Damn The Torpedoes, but still a hell of a record. I'm keeping my eyes open for more deals like this and I'm hopeful to find a nice copy of Full Moon Fever pretty soon.
