You're Gettin' Even While I'm Gettin' Odd is the 14th and final album by American rock band The J. Geils Band, released in 1984 after lead singer Peter Wolf left the band. It has only been released on CD in Japan (that edition being long out of print). A vinyl and cassette version of the album was issued in the U.S. in 1984 on the EMI label, but was deleted after a few months and never re-issued. This album does not appear on the band's web site discography.

The album contained one single, "Concealed Weapons", which peaked at No. 63 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
