Numbered edition limited to 2,000 copies

Mastered from the original master tapes

Instantly successful, among highest-selling debut albums in history!

Most everyone knows The Knack's Get the Knack because of the ubiquitous smash "My Sharona," a contagious hit that still plays countless times everyday on radio stations nationwide. But the appeal and significance of the Los Angeles quartet's 1979 debut extend far beyond the career-making single. Loaded with tight power pop, hummable hooks, blunt lyrics, and precision playing, the controversy-igniting Get the Knack resonates with an ageless freshness that's influenced everyone from Kurt Cobain to modern indie artists such as the Mountain Goats.

Mastered from the original master tapes and strictly limited to 2,000 numbered copies, Get the Knack brings the record's urgent harmonies, keen melodies, bell-clear tones, and snapping percussion out of the shadows and into the limelight. Absent the dynamic compression that squelched previous reissues, this numbered limited-edition audiophile version blossoms with detail, openness, and brashness.

Released by Capitol Records after the Knack courted a dozen other offers, the 12-track set remains one of the most instantaneously successful debuts ever made. Aided by tongue-in-cheek marketing, a sly cover-art reference to the Beatles' Meet the Beatles, and Mack Truck-sized refrains that stick in your head for hours, Get the Knack went gold in days and, to date, has sold more than 5 million copies.
