    Default The Cars "Shake it Up" MOFI CD

    This is a "must have" for SDA owners. Excellent remastering that far exceeds the original CD.

    I have it on Nautilus, but the Mofi offerings are tempting.

    hmmm... just the original licorice pizza here. Pretty good album; not up to the calibre of the first two, but not bad. I really like Since You're Gone.

    Just sayin'.
    all the best,

    Hard to believe it's been 30 years since The Cars debut album. I remember when I first heard it in the service. A bud of mine put it on his table in the barracks and I was like, wow! Who are these guys? And the good times rolled. ;)

    As good as their debut album was, Candy-O is their best effort, IMO. Great tunes and good memories.

    Thank you for the Candy-O info. MOFI's site only shows the Lp.

    "Shake It Up" is no longer on Mofi's site after being listed for about two to three weeks! I wonder how limited the production run was because I have #140? Elusivedisc still shows them in stock. I hope that "Candy-O" becomes available, or was it available for a short time and sold out? It seems strange that "Shake It Up" CD 788 was released before "Candy-O" 782.

    Talk about a timeless band. I spent many a college party in the late nineties spinning these discs with friends. I imagine many are doing the same now...
    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    It's still there, http://www.musicdirect.com/product/86530

    If you note the shipping time, it says 3-7 days, which means it's out of stock, but more are coming.

    Nice to see some titles the rest of the world might like....leave it to MoFi and not SACD to make that happen. I'll pick up both.

    No?! Really?! My point was its an artist that might actually get some ppl other than baby boomers to buy it. I'm suprised it's not another useless organ or classical music release.

    Whatever. I live on the 21st century. You have no idea what I listen to which includes some of that other stuff....but only the worth listening to kind.

    I would say 4000 Classical titles and 10 modern titles could have been at least one nail in the SACD coffin. Save the mathematics oh ye of large scale SACD investment...it's just a generalization.

    I agree Shake it up on mofi does sound fantastic. I thought they also had the 1st LP on LP but, I did not hear ( or see) of any plans for them to release it on CD. I do hope they put Candy-O on CD also. The web site only shows coming soon on LP.


    I also have the Santana and Santana Abraxis Mofi CD's. They do have a little hiss to them but, so did the original LP and it still sounds way better then the regular release CD.
