Before there was Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers there was Mudcrutch. They consist of Tom Petty with fellow Heartbreakers members Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench with original Mudcrutch members Tom Leadon and Randall Marsh. It truly is a feel good story in that many people have played in garage bands, loved it, but never got any recognition. Finally there will be some acknowledgement for this band.
Mudcrutch has waited 30 years to put out their debut album, but here it finally is. The album is made up of some Tom Petty tunes along with some covers. The sound is a wonderful and surprisingly refreshing example of country tinged good old American rock
