The legendary alternative rockers The Cars set the music world on fire back in 1977 with their superstar brand of rock and roll. Augmented with the brilliant musicianship of members Ric Ocasek, Benjamin Orr, Elliot Easton, David Robinson and Greg Hawkes, their initial offerings would prove to become the huge catalyst for things to come.
The Cars released six smash albums - The Cars, Candy-O, Panorama, Shake It Up, Heartbeat City and Door to Door - with singles and hit album tracks that would take the band to the top of all the popular music charts, as these masterpiece albums would become classic rock manna for the ages.
Their performances were of legendary proportions, which still makes them one of the most successful live acts of the classic rock era. With massive radio airplay and, of course, an amazing string of number one singles and hit albums, The Cars to this day are still revered and loved by their continual growing legion of fans worldwide.
After delivering a plethora of hits in rapid succession for Elektra Records, the label honored this hugely popular band with their incredible greatest hits album, simply titled The Cars Greatest Hits.
Filled with a treasure trove of chart-topping singles and hit album tracks from their smash albums, this incredible 1985 effort is one of the biggest greatest hits albums ever released, with over six million units sold!
No stone is left unturned, as this 12-track masterpiece is loaded with hit after hit, featuring smash singles like "Just What I Needed," "Drive," "Let's Go," "Good Times Roll," "Shake It Up" and "My Best Friend's Girl."
As one of the most enduring albums in their massive career catalog, The Cars Greatest Hits includes even more significant hit tracks like the power ballad "I'm Not the One" and more hard rock classic hits like "Touch and Go," "You Might Think" and the number one rocker made especially for this album "Tonight She Comes." All in all, a collection of songs which took the fans by storm!
