Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
You're Gonna Get It!

  (Item #: pettyyoure_1901_1904) 

Our Price: $119.99

  • A solidly hard rockin' copy that rated seriously good grades of Double Plus (A++) on both sides - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Rich and open with a killer bottom end, musically it's surely the best record Tom Petty ever made - a late '70s Rock Classic
  • Three of Petty's best songs are on this one - Restless, I Need To Know and Listen To Her Heart - and they sound amazing
  • "Overall, the current LP boasts an impressive stylistic cohesiveness with its predecessor, but what makes the album exciting are the fresh hints of openness and expansion just beneath the surface. The rhythms are a bit looser, and there's a new emphasis on Petty's rough, driving, rock & roll guitar in the mix." Rolling Stone

  • "Walter Becker and Donald Fagen were remarkable craftsmen from the start, as Steely Dan's debut illustrates. Each song is tightly constructed, with interlocking chords and gracefully interwoven melodies, buoyed by clever, cryptic lyrics."

Although few in number, his contributions to Europe '72 are among the most commanding not only of this release, but of his career."
