I love almost all their stuff except for "The New Cars" which I don't count as the Cars. Great band!!

I remember getting their first album for Christmas in 1978 (thanks to my cool brother!). Really dug them up to around 'Panorama'. Fortunately they knew when to call it quits and didn't stick around too long past their prime. The first album and 'Candy-O' are both solid. Maybe a little too "New Wave" for some members on this board, but great for their time. Benjamin Orr's solo album 'The Lace' is really good too. Never really cared too much for Ric Ocasek's solo work.

Good band. As Roger states, 'Candy -O' and S/T are both good and I would also add the excellent 'Heartbeat City' to that list aswell. I also fully agree with his comment about Benjamin Orr's 'The Lace' album which is also excellent.

Good band. They were pretty much inescapable during the early days of MTV. Just saw their video for "Drive" on VH1 Classic yesterday as a matter of fact.

 

My wife's got their Greatest Hits CD around here somewhere, every once in a while I dust it off and give it a spin.

Yeah I've heard of "The New Cars" although I've yet to hear them. I'll take your word for it though.

 

Don't beleive a word.

 

The New Cars is great and the "renditions" of the old songs are superb.

 

 

All in all the Cars are a great band with a huge catologue of hits.

I like The Cars. In fact, I don't know how many here know this, but The Cars were the biggest influence on .38 Special when they made their change in sound from Skynyrd's little brother, just another southern rock band to an arena/aor southern rock band. Just listen to the guitar work in both bands. in an interview with Donnie and Don they said they knew that it was make or break time and they had to make a change. The Cars was one of the biggest things going then and they really felt what they did related to their sound. adopted some of what the Cars was doing and mixed it with some southen rock and you have .38 Sepcial hit records.

Have to agree with you there... I loved The New Cars release. Also saw them live and the were great. I hope that The New Cars release something else.

Anybody ever heard Indestructible Noise Command (I.N.C.)'s classic thrash metal rendition of "Just What I Needed?" :rofl:

Nice pop rock.

I like Heatbeat city too,It was produced by Mutt Lange(one of the best hard rock producer).

I'm listening to it right now, yeah nice to remember.

I remember their funny videos (you might think and magic), I was very young.

I'm wondering what is doing Rick Ocasek now?

I used to like 'em but went off them around the time of Heartbeat City, Panorama I remember having a hard time getting into ... just think they disappeared up their own backsides a little on that, but Shake It Up was a decent return to form. Probably should invest in the CD's again since I long ago sold my vinyl.
