Album

The Cars is the debut album by the American new wave band the Cars. It was released on June 6, 1978, on Elektra Records. The album, which featured the three charting singles Just What I Needed, My Best Friend's Girl and Good Times Roll, as well as several album-oriented rock radio hits, was a major success for the band, remaining on the charts for 139 weeks. The Cars: все альбомы, включая Got a Lot on My Head , Drive , Live at The Agora, 1978 и другие. The Cars' 1978 self-titled debut, issued on the Elektra label, is a genuine rock masterpiece. The band jokingly referred to the album as their true greatest-hits album, but it's no exaggeration - all nine tracks are new waverock classics, still in rotation on rock radio. Whereas most bands of the late '70s embraced either punknew wave or hard rock, the Cars were one of the first bands to do the unthinkable - merge the two styles together.

This is a terrific pressing of this album! I'm wondering why there isn't much interest for the promotional 45 singles that have an INCREDIBLE mono mix that is otherwise unavailable?
Phalaken
Excellent sound on this pressing 9/10. Great detail captured in this nice wide soundstage right down to the room ambiance. The Cars were made for vinyl and vice-versa. There are a ton of these out there for short money - such a steal.
Hinewen
100 % agreed, one of those albums that is best heard on original vinyl
Forcestalker
This particular pressing is excellently mastered and quiet. Hard to imagine any repress being better than this but you never know.

You can only listen to good sound quality for so long before it gets old?
Welen
