Super Hot Stamper

The Cars
The Cars

  (Item #: cars_cars_1911) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • With superb Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides, this is a killer copy of The Cars' debut album
  • You may have heard these songs a million times, but you'll be shocked at just how much better they sound on this very pressing
  • A Better Records Top 100 title, the band's masterpiece, and a New Wave Must Own Classic from 1978
  • 5 stars: "Whereas most bands of the late '70s embraced either punk/new wave or hard rock, the Cars were one of the first bands to do the unthinkable — merge the two styles together. With flawless performances, songwriting, and production (courtesy of Queen alumnus Roy Thomas Baker), the Cars' debut remains one of rock's all-time classics."

Nautilus Debunked

  (Item #: cars_cars_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing and another Half Speed debunked.

This Nautilus Half-Speed Mastered LP is pure mud -- compressed; thick and congested, a disaster on every level, much like their atrocious remastering of Candy-O. If you own this Audiophile BS pressing (NR-14) and you can't hear what's wrong with it, you seriously need to consider revamping your system.

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: cars_cars_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Jazz Hall of Fame.

As you may remember from our last go around with The Cars’ debut, we proclaimed that new White Hot Stampers had been discovered, and indeed they had. These, dear reader, are the very ones of which we spoke, and let me assure you, they are every bit as good. They just plain blow the doors off our previous favorites, which is both shocking and wonderful. The King is Dead, Long Live the King!

Talk about jumping out of the speakers, the energy level of this copy is completely OFF THE CHARTS. You’ve probably heard these songs a million times, but you’ve NEVER heard them sound like this. Both sides have FREAKISHLY GOOD SOUND -- dynamic, spacious and ALIVE!

Ramping Up the Horsepower Like Crazy

  (Item #: cars_cars_wtlf) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with specific advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your copy of the classic first Cars album.

The best copies must have one absolutely essential quality if this groundbreaking New Wave album is to come to life -- a huge, spacious soundstage.

We Love Dynamic Choruses, and These Are Amazing!

  (Item #: cars_cars_choruses) 



Another in the long list of recordings that really comes alive when you Turn Up Your Volume.

The hottest of the Hot Stampers did one easily recognizable thing better than the Also-Rans, and it was apparent pretty much from the get-go. The multi-multi-multi-tracked Power Pop Choruses on the best copies don't strain (a very common problem), they are bigger and more powerful, they stretch from wall to wall, and the voices that make them up are separated much more than on other copies.
