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 explained: "That was a song that took a long time to write. Roger McGuinn swears he told me the line - about the waiting being the hardest part - but I think I got the idea from something Janis Joplin said on television. I had the chorus very quickly, but I had a very difficult time piecing together the rest of the song. It's about waiting for your dreams and not knowing if they will come true. I've always felt it was an optimistic song. This was released as the lead single from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' fourth album, Hard Promises

The Waiting is the lead single from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' album Hard Promises released in 1981. The song peaked at on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and on the magazine’s new Rock Tracks chart, where it remained for six consecutive weeks. The Waiting was also featured prominently in at least one promotional spot for the fifth season of the hit TV comedy series The Office.

Playback is a box set compilation by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, released in 1995. It contains popular album tracks, B-sides, previously unreleased outtakes, and early songs by Petty's previous band Mudcrutch. A companion VHS home video, later released on DVD, was also released, featuring the band's most popular music videos to date. Disc one: The Big Jangle. Disc two: Spoiled & Mistreated. Disc three: Good Booty.

Despite featuring two of the band’s most enduring hits, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ debut is best remembered as a sketchpad for ideas that came together better later. On November 9, 1976, an album containing two of the most widely beloved and unavoidable rock radio staples ever recorded was released, and nearly a year went by before anyone noticed. It’s not that the music was difficult or short on power-pop hooks or songs about rockin’-all the elements that later made Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers one of America’s most agreeable and enduring music institutions were clear and present on the band’s self-titled debut.
