Fans of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, which pretty much means everybody, will be thrilled to hear that the band will commemorate the 40th anniversary of their self-titled debut album by releasing two companion vinyl box sets featuring their entire studio album repertoire via a cooperative arrangement between Universal Music Group’s UMe and Warner Music Group’s Reprise/Warner Bros. Records.

Several of these classic rock albums have been out of print on vinyl for years and all albums have been remastered for this release (except where noted below). All LPs in each of the limited-edition box sets will be pressed on 180-gram vinyl with replica artwork. If you’ve been waiting to get your turntable repaired or to simply buy a new one, now would be the time.

The Complete Studio Albums Volume 1 (1976-1991) features nine vinyl albums and will be released on December 9. Pre-order is available here.
