tompetty 1124091 Tom Petty Release Gets Classic Albums TreatmentDamn the Torpedoes, the 1979 breakout release for [lastfm]Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers[/lastfm], will soon be hitting store shelves again. Eagle Rock Entertainment plans for a DVD and Blu-Ray release of a documentary of the recording, part of their Classic Albums series, to be available August 3.

The 56-minute music doc highlights the recording of the group’s iconic album, which spawned the hits “Don’t Do Me Like That,” “Refugee,” “Here Comes My Girl” and “Even The Losers.” The album peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 chart and Rolling Stone called it one of Petty’s best ever.

Next month’s release will feature interviews with the Heartbreakers – [lastfm]Tom Petty[/lastfm], [lastfm]Mike Campbell[/lastfm], [lastfm]Benmont Tench[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Ron Blair[/lastfm] – as well as the co-producer and engineer behind the album.

Over 40 minutes of additional bonus material will be available on the DVD and Blu-Ray disc, but those that just want the bare bones package will be able to see an hour long Classic Albums: Damn The Torpedoes on VH1 soon.
