Released on June 13, 1979, Candy-O is the Cars’ second album. The band recorded again with Queen producer Roy Thomas Baker (he also produced the Cars’ 1st album). It hit #3 on the U.S. Billboard album chart, and the first single “Let’s Go” took the Cars into the top 15 on the Billboard hot 100 singles chart for the first time. Candy-O is an RIAA certified 4X platinum album in the U.S. alone. Our expanded edition includes a previously unreleased track, “They Won’t See You”.
Released August 12, 1980, Panorama is the Cars’ third album. It hit #3 on the U.S. Billboard top 200 chart, and the single “Touch and Go” reached #37 on the Billboard hot 100 chart. Panorama is a pure fan favorite.
