  • A Better Records favorite (Top 100 of course) and an absolute thrill when it sounds like this!
  • 5 stars: "Hall & Oates' second album was the first indication of the duo's talent for sleek, soul-inflected pop/rock. It featured the single "She's Gone," which would become a big hit in 1975 when it was re-released following the success of "Sara Smile.""

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

  (Item #: pettyyoure_1802) 

Our Price: $169.99

  • A seriously hard rockin' copy that earned nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) grades on both sides, right up there with our Shootout Winner
  • 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

  • A stunning sounding copy with each side rating a Double Plus (A++) or better!
  • Both sides here are excellent -- big, rich and full with a massive bottom end and lots of energy
  • A tough record to find good sound for - many originals are just plain awful and they don't come cheap
  • 4 1/2 stars: "Hot Rats' genius lies in the way it fuses the compositional sophistication of jazz with rock's down-and-dirty attitude — there's a real looseness and grit to the three lengthy jams, and a surprising, wry elegance to the three shorter, tightly arranged numbers (particularly the sumptuous "Peaches en Regalia")."
