Incredible is the third studio album by Gary Puckett & The Union Gap, released in 1968. In contrast to their first two albums, which used cover versions of hit songs for about half their content, Incredible consists entirely of new songs written by the band members themselves and/or their producer, Jerry Fuller. The album landed on the Billboard 200 chart, reaching No. 20, being the group's top charting album.[1]

The song "Lady Willpower" was released in June 1968 and hit No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, No. 26 on the adult contemporary chart, and No. 5 on the United Kingdom chart.[2] The song "Over You" was released in September 1968 and hit No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100, No. 3 on the adult contemporary chart, and No. 54 on the United Kingdom chart.[3]
