Background: You’re Gonna Get It, released in 1978, was the second album by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and the last album by the band to be issued by Shelter Records before the label folded. While the album didn’t have a chart-topping hit, it did feature two singles that got a lot of airplay – “I Need to Know,” which reached #41 on the Billboard charts, and “Listen to Her Heart,” which reached #59. The album itself reached #23 and was certified gold.
A few promotional copies of the album were pressed on red vinyl to get the attention of radio station programmers.
