Cars Announce Expanded Editions of ‘Candy-O’ and ‘Panorama’ Albums


The Cars will release expanded versions of their second and third albums this summer.

The two LPs, Candy-O and Panorama — which were originally released in 1979 and 1980, respectively — will arrive on July 28 as single-disc “Expanded Editions” with remastered sound and bonus tracks, including some previously unreleased songs.

The new Candy-O comes with seven bonus tracks, mostly made up of producer Roy Thomas Baker’s monitor mixes and versions of album cuts recorded at Northern Studios. The B-side to the “Let’s Go” single, “That’s It,” is also included.

Panorama‘s reissue features four bonus tracks, including three previously unreleased songs and “Don’t Go to Pieces,” which was originally on the flip side of the “Don’t Tell Me No” single.

You can see the track listings for both expanded editions below.

The mastering for both reissues was supervised by Ric Ocasek, who supervised the remastering for last year’s box set, The Cars: The Elektra Years. The upcoming albums will use these same remasters.
