Cars- The Cars- Ric Ocasek

The Cars have a reserved parking spot at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April!!!

“We made that first record in twelve days,” says The Cars‘ driving force Ric Ocasek in this In the Studio  classic rock interview. What is even more remarkable is that The Cars   would accelerate from regional Boston appeal in May 1978 to parked on the cover of Rolling Stone  magazine by the following January with the headline “Best New Group”, eventually to sell six million copies of that incredible debut album. Those magical twelve days recording in London with veteran producer Roy Thomas Baker resulted in such favorites as “My Best Friend’s Girl”,”Just What I Needed”,”Good Times Roll”,”You’re All I Got Tonight“, and the hypnotic “Moving in Stereo”, all reasons why almost forty years later we still rev up this high-horsepower rock roadster which runs as well today as the day in May 1978 when The Cars  rolled off the production line. –Redbeard
