In honour of The Cars' induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018, Rhino is celebrating with the release of landmark fifth album of The Cars, Shake It Up. It was the last album by the Cars to be produced by Roy Thomas Baker. A much more pop-oriented album than its predecessor, its title track became their first Billboard top ten hit.

Each release features the original album – remastered in 2016 – expanded with rare and unreleased bonus tracks.

Ric Ocasek, Elliot Easton, Greg Hawkes, Benjamin Orr and David Robinson recorded Shake It Up in 1981 at Syncro Sound, the group’s new studio in Boston, with producer Roy Thomas Baker. Working in their own space afforded them the time to perfect the sound of the album, which became their third-straight Top 10 hit record and sold more than two million copies. It features the unforgettable singles “Since You’re Gone,” “Think It Over” and The Cars’ first Top 10 hit single, “Shake It Up.”

Several unreleased tracks make their debut on Shake It Up (Expanded), including an early version of “Since You’re Gone,” the demo for “Shake It Up” and an unreleased song called “Midnight Dancer.”
192 kHz / 24-bit, 96 kHz / 24-bit PCM – Rhino/Elektra Studio Masters

Tracks 11-13, 16 – 44.1 kHz / 24-bit PCM, mastered in 96 kHz / 24-bit; 44.1 kHz / 24-bit PCM, mastered in 192 kHz / 24-bit

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
