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 a catalyst for huge things to come.
For their next six smash albums, The Cars, Candy-O, Panorama, Shake It Up, Heartbeat City and Door to Door, the singles and hit album tracks would take the band to the top of all the popular music charts. With massive radio airplay and of course an amazing string of #1 singles and hit albums, The Cars remain revered and one of the most successful live acts of the classic rock era.
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 awarded these rock legends with 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 like "Just What I Needed," "Drive," "Let’s Go," "Good Times Roll," "Shake It Up" and "My Best Friend’s Girl." 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 #1 rocker made especially for the album "Tonight She Comes."
