Let Me Up (I've Had Enough) (styled on the cover as "Let Me Up (I've Had Enough)" with quotation marks) is a heartland rock album by the American band Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, released in 1987. This album features more songwriting collaborations between Petty and Mike Campbell than any other Petty album. It is also notable for being the only previous studio album not represented on Petty's 1993 Greatest Hits album, even though the single "Jammin' Me" (co-written with fellow Traveling Wilbury Bob Dylan) was #1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks for four weeks. "Jammin' Me" was later included in the album Anthology: Through the Years, which the RIAA has declared gold. In addition, Let Me Up (I've Had Enough) was made to sound like a live recording, using a technique they borrowed from Dylan.
