    This is one of my favorite old albums from back in the day. It sounds great loud, especially on long road trips.

      All killer, No filler on this album. This album came out in 1978 and helped define what was to become the "80's" sound.

              I keep thinking of this cover and how phenomenal it is, nothing like it, fits the band to a "T"!

                Ben Orr has such incredible range of vocals, and I also like Rick's. Elliot Easton is so underrated, he actually played the guitar backwards, despite being right handed, to be more "Beatles" like offset. Their drummer and keyboard are so excellent, the whole band just rocks when they play. I am fully back in love with the cars after a 40+ years of chasing other music.

                  I have a copy that is etched like above, with A-5, B-5, but...check this out...the labels on both sides are "Side One" labels.

                    Stellar pressing. Sounds like one of my MoFis. Brilliant. Get it!

                      Was cleaning albums tonight and realized I have a unique copy of this variation. The runout on side A is 6E-135 - A6, but on the inner ring of the runout it reads "R 144 33A" but it is scratched out by the etcher (RTB). Interesting flaw.
