Newly Remastered and Expanded Version featuring Original Album Plus Rare and Unreleased Recordings; Music on 3 Sides with Etching on the 4th

Following the massive success of The Cars' multi-platinum debut in 1978, the band kept its platinum-album streak rolling with Candy-O and Panorama, releases that include memorable hits like "Let's Go," "It's All I Can Do" and "Touch and Go." For the first time ever, the band has expanded those classics to create versions that include rare and unreleased recordings taken from the sessions for each albumCars mastermind Ric Ocasek recently supervised the remastering of these albums for 2016's boxed set The Cars: The Elektra Years, ensuring superior sound quality on these new versions. Presented in gatefold sleeves, the new double vinyl versions include music on three sides with an etching on the fourth.

For the follow-up to their eponymous debut, The Cars teamed up once again with producer Roy Thomas Baker (Queen) to record Candy-O. The album was released in the summer of 1979 and became a huge hit, peaking at No. 3 on the Billboard Album Chart and eventually earning quadruple-platinum certification in the U.S. One of its singles, "Let's Go," was the band's first Top 15 hit on the Billboard singles chart. The Candy-O: Expanded Edition goes beyond the original album's 11 tracks with seven bonus tracks. Among the highlights are unreleased alternate mixes of "Let's Go" and "Lust For Kicks," as well as the previously unissued song "They Won't See You (The Northern Studios Version)." The album's liner notes were written by David Wild and include a new interview with guitarist Elliot Easton.
