Refugee - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers formed in 1976 when Tom Petty, Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench left the band Mudcrutch. 'Refugee' was released in 1980 as the second single from their album 'Damn the torpedoes'. The single peaked at number 15 in the US Billboard Hot 100 and number 21 in the Netherlands.

I hadn't heard this song in a long time when I came across it on television in 1995. Only a week later, I found the single. I still rate this as a pretty strange coincidence.

My collection: 7" single no. 2425
Found: July 22, 1995
Cost: 5 guilders
Tracks: 'Refugee' / 'It's rainin' again'
