Hallo Paul, i have an answer from JPC about the two vinyl editions they offered.
They told me that there is a black vinyl edition and a white vinyl edition. I am happy to have pre-ordered the white vinyl edition.
This matches perfect to the white frame cover. These two releases and the two expanded editions from last year should have been released in the Elektra box set two years ago. Shame on you, Rhino!
So instead of me buying 5 albums at 10e each I buy the box set for 30e. What is the logic? Why not do it the other way around? I am even selling the box set of their albums and purchasing all their deluxe reissues so as to have this track included.
There is nothing wrong with the track so is part of groups discography. I actually hate it when singles that were not on albums originally are then not included on deluxe editions rather these than the typical boring demos and live versions. Unless they were to re-release Greatest Hits it has nowhere else to go.
One of my favorite Cars songs for sure!! I wonder if it will be re-released as part of this campaign. I am wondering what version is better, the new remaster of or an earlier version …. There is no way those remasters are brickwalled they sound better than they ever did. The irony, at this moment, is that the demo for Drive is making me cringe.
That drum machine beat in the background. Or something from a Casio synth. The released version is one of the most perfect racks o fthe 80s, but that demo. In I was attending my first year at Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, and a couple of my friends from school invited me to join them to hear the Cars playing at a small nightclub just a few blocks south of Boylston Street.
It was a total disconnect for me until a year later when punk rock and new wave started to take over the radio airwaves and forced me to re-evaluate pop music. Because it is a good track, part of that era and from their discography.
Ironically, Ric Ocasek has personally supervised the mastering for these reissues. Low DR and brickwalling works for him. At least we still have the MFSL versions.
Then, not long ago, I re-discovered Drive. I had pre-ordered this the other day, but will probably cancel. I may just get one of the earlier versions or at least put off a purchase until the reviews come in on the audio quality of this new version. I notice the graphic of the Heartbeat City album cover above does not have the familiar maroon-coloured border with the artist name and album title.
Will the album cover of the reissue be different than the original release? Yes, it will be different. They changed it for the Elektra Years box, actually, explaining that it was supposed to be white in the first place! Would have loved a cleaned up version of that on a third bluray with a 5. Yes, a missed opportunity for what would have been a truly great reissue. Wang Chung opened for them and put on a great show at a famous place outside D.
Ric just strummed his guitar and sung, occasionally pointing to my group in the 4th row, who cheered him on throughout the whole show. The Cars. Looking for Love. Stranger Eyes. You Might Think.
