Get It is the third album by Welsh rock musician Dave Edmunds, released in 1977. Some of the songs were performed by an early "trio" version of Rockpile (Edmunds, Nick Lowe and Terry Williams); others (such as "I Knew the Bride" and "Little Darlin'") were recorded by Edmunds solo. Also recorded in these sessions was the non-album Edmunds-Lowe tune "As Lovers Do", which was used as the B-side of both "Here Comes the Weekend" and the later "Crawling from the Wreckage". "New York's a Lonely Town", the B-side of "Where or When" was also recorded during the six-week sessions for the album.

Two recordings that appear on Get It were from much earlier sessions. "Ju Ju Man" was recorded in 1975, while "My Baby Left Me' dated all the way back to 1969, and was performed by Edmunds backed with members of his band Love Sculpture: Mickey Gee, John Williams and Terry Williams.
