Despite featuring two of the band’s most enduring hits, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ debut is best remembered as a sketchpad for ideas that came together better later. On November 9, 1976, an album containing two of the most widely beloved and unavoidable rock radio staples ever recorded was released, and nearly a year went by before anyone noticed. It’s not that the music was difficult or short on power-pop hooks or songs about rockin’-all the elements that later made Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers one of America’s most agreeable and enduring music institutions were clear and present on the band’s self-titled debut.

It was again produced byJeff Lynne and includes the hit singles "Learning To Fly" and "Into The Great Wide Open", the latter featuring JohnnyDepp, Gabrielle Anwar and Faye Dunaway in the video.
