Change of Season

Ooh Yeah! is the thirteenth studio album by Daryl Hall & John Oates, released in 1988. Though it went platinum and produced a hit with "Everything Your Heart Desires", it charted lower and sold fewer copies than the band's early-to-mid-eighties albums.

In 2009, Sony Music Custom Marketing Group released a triple pack of Hall & Oates albums. Along with this album, the pack included Daryl Hall & John Oates and H2O.
