New Cars Expanded Reissues On The Way

Summer of '77, there I was, with a friend, walking through Kenmore Square when I spotted a sandwich board sign outside the Rat that said "Tonight The Cars".  I said to my friend (something like), "Hey, it's that band with that album". So we went in...and saw the Cars...at the Rat.

That's really all I remember. That particular moment. ...and going in to see the band. But I'm sure they were good! 😉 

I played their first two albums a lot but lost interest in the ones that followed.

At any rate, here's the info on a couple reissues slated for this summer!

The good times continue to roll for Cars fans this summer with the release of two expanded reissues.

Due out July 28, the reissues of 1979’s Candy-O and 1980’s Panorama will include previously unreleased mixes and versions of tracks from each album. (See complete track listing below.) Both reissues have been remastered by Ric Ocasek and will be available in three formats:  CD, Vinyl and Digital.

The expanded reissues of Candy-O and Panorama are part of an extended reissue campaign that began back in March 2016 with the release of the box set The Elektra Years 1978-1987, so don’t be surprised to hear about more expanded reissues from The Cars in the near future.
