    Really groundbreaking band...a slew of big hits over many years, but that first album holds so many memories for me...

    Same here, in fact still have their first album on vinyl. Bass player Benjamin Orr was also a great singer and passed in 2000 or 2001. They had a groove that just got your toes tappin'.

    Ben actually sang pretty much all but a few songs, but Ric's presence as 'front man' gave the band a lot of mojo.

    I never spent much of my money on "albums". Always had better plans for my $$$ but I did have The Cars first album.

    They were the Sound that a Generation really liked (The Cars ) and Ric was the real deal (That Stan Ridgeway aspired to be )
