Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers is the debut album by the band of the same name, released on November 9, 1976 by Shelter Records. The album was recorded and mixed at the Shelter Studio in Hollywood, California. Initially following its release, the album received little attention in the United States.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (alternately Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers) were an American rock band from Gainesville, Florida. Formed in 1976, the band originally comprised Tom Petty (lead singer, guitar), Mike Campbell (lead guitarist), Ron Blair (bass guitar), Stan Lynch (drums), and Benmont Tench (keyboards). In 1981, Blair, weary of the touring lifestyle, departed the band. His replacement, Howie Epstein, stayed with the band for the next two decades

Produced by Dave Stewart, Southern Accents is an ambitious album, attempting to incorporate touches of psychedelia, soul, and country into a loose concept about the modern South. Occasionally, the songs work; "Rebels" and "Spike" are fine rockers, and "Don't Come Around Here No More" and "Make It Better (Forget About Me)" expand the Heartbreakers' sound nicely. But too often, the record is weighed down by its own ambitions.

Album Southern Accents. Southern Accents Lyrics. There's a southern accent, where I come from The young 'uns call it country The Yankees call it dumb. I got my own way of talkin' But everything is done, with a southern accent Where I come from. Now that drunk tank in Atlanta's Just a motel room to me Think I might go work Orlando If them orange groves don't freeze. I got my own way of workin' But everything is run, with a southern accent Where I come from

Darrell from Thomasville, GaI bought the "33" Southern Accents album when I was stationed in Panama. The title track took me back home. A mention inside the jacket, if I remember right, said: "There is nothing as sad nor more glorious than generations changing hands. Southern Rock as a whole was down and Petty came out with this great southern rock album during a time when Springsteen, Madona (sp), Jackson, Prince, and U2 were in another world. It really cemented the greatness of Petty. To switch Genres with such a powerful recording. Honey don't walk out on me/to drunk to follow. You know you won't feel this/way tomorrow.
