Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers / Don’t Do Me Like That

In November of 1979, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers released their single, Don’t Do Me Like That. From their Lp, Damn The Torpedoes, it reached the #10 spot in the U.S., and #3 in Canada. Initially, Petty had thought that the song would be good for The J. Geils Band. Producer Jimmy Iovine and several members of Petty’s band encouraged him to keep it for Damn.
