Album Details

In 1978, the Cars had a Top 40 hit with the band's very first single, "Just What I Needed." That streak continued over the next 10 years, as the band revisited the Top 40 a dozen more times with such timeless radio hits as "Let's Go" and "Shake It Up" along with iconic videos like "Magic" and "You Might Think," which won MTV's first-ever "Video Of The Year" award in 1984.

The five original members of The Cars - Ric Ocasek, the late Benjamin Orr, Greg Hawkes, Elliot Easton and David Robinson - recorded six studio albums together from 1978 to 1987 - all of them with Elektra Records - and have sold more than 23 million albums in the U.S. alone. The group issued their seventh full-length album and first in over 20 years, Move Like This, in 2011.

The Elektra Years 1978-1987 box set collects all six of the band's Elektra studio albums, each one presented in a replica sleeve with original artwork. Ric Ocasek oversaw digital remastering for the set, while drummer David Robinson - who helped create The Cars' iconic album covers through the years - served as art director. The limited edition vinyl version of the boxed set presents each album on 180-gram LP pressed on different colored vinyl.
