The Elektra Years 1978-1987
The five original members of The Cars - Ric Ocasek, the late Benjamin Orr, Greg Hawkes, Elliot Easton and David Robinson - recorded a half-dozen studio albums together, all of them with Elektra Records, and have sold more than 23 million albums in the U.S. alone. THE ELEKTRA YEARS 1978-1987 features all six of those classic collections (1978's THE CARS, 1979's CANDY-O, 1980's PANORAMA, 1981's SHAKE IT UP, 1984's HEARTBEAT CITY and 1987's DOOR TO DOOR), each one presented in a replica sleeve with original artwork. Among the 60 tracks are the band's biggest hits including "My Best Friend's Girl," "Let's Go," "Magic," "You Might Think" and "Drive." Ric Ocasek oversaw digital remastering for the set, and as it's The Cars frontman's birthday, we'll turn the ignition on to THE ELEKTRA YEARS.
