Part of the problem was that some of these were a bit too eager to recycle some of his stock minor-keyed riffs, as good as his prototype was. Sessions with Jeff Lynne and Dave Edmunds in the '70s didn't amount to much, but an early-'80s album produced by Tom Petty and featuring members of the Heartbreakers as backing musicians got him into the Top 40 again with a cover of "Sea of Love.
