Mentioned by recording engineer Richard Dodd in this Sound on Sound interview about the recording of "Learning to Fly".
I believe Jeff played the bass on 'Learning To Fly', DI'd as usual, and the drums would have been miked with a 57 about 18 inches away from the snare, an [Neumann U] 87 on the cymbals and the same 57 on the tom-toms. Pretty basic stuff.
The SM57 is also mentioned in this March 1983 Musician article about Tom Petty and the Heartbreaks.
They all use Shure SM57s, are mixed through a Davey Bryson console and are heard through Jensen Bulldogs.
