Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: Echo CD (New)
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: Echo
1 CD. New, unopened, still sealed in shrink-wrap.
Echo is the tenth studio album by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Released in April 1999, the album reached number 10 on the Billboard 200, aided by singles "Free Girl Now", "Swingin'" and "Room at the Top", which hit numbers 5, 17 and 19 respectively on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks in 1999.
The album was the last to feature contributions from longtime bassist/vocalist Howie Epstein, who died of a heroin overdose in 2003. Despite still being a member of the band, Epstein is missing from the album's cover photo because he failed to show up for the photo shoot, and Petty ordered it to commence without him. It also marks the first of their albums to feature longtime touring member Scott Thurston. It is the only of their albums to feature a lead vocal from another member of the band: lead guitarist Mike Campbell, on "I Don't Wanna Fight."
Echo was certified Gold (500,000 copies sold) by the RIAA in July 1999, only three months after it was released.
