The Cars Unlocked, the new live DVD/live CD (Oct. 17/Docurama), produced by RIC OCASEK, chronices the group’s multi-platinum heyday and unearths over twenty never-before-seen, career-spanning performances, from rock clubs to stadiums, plus candid behind-the-scenes footage and a bonus live CD featuring an additional fourteen performances.
“You Might Think” you know The Cars, but it’s time to say “Hello Again.” On October 17, Docurama will release The Cars Unlocked, the definitive live document of one of the most popular and influential rock groups of our time. Unlocked includes a live DVD with over twenty never before seen performances, interspersed with intimate interview footage, backstage antics, soundcheck rehearsals and more. Unlocked also includes a bonus CD, the multi-platinum group’s first-ever live album, with fourteen additional, direct-from-the-soundboard songs. The Cars Unlocked is produced by the group’s lead singer/songwriter Ric Ocasek.
The Cars Unlocked comes packaged in a gorgeous, embossed case and includes a 28-page, hardbound booklet, designed by Ocasek, with dozens of newly unearthed photos. “This is the most comprehensive look at The Cars ever released on any format,” says Ocasek. “I've been sifting through our video and audio archives for a long time, and think I’ve put together a really personal, inside look at the group.”
From their kinetic, groundbreaking late 1970s club shows to epoch-defining arena tours in the 1980s, The Cars were at the center of the American popular consciousness for over a decade. They have sold over 30 million albums worldwide, and charted some twenty Top 40 singles. Though the group disbanded in 1988, their unmistakable imprint is echoed in contemporary bands like Franz Ferdinand, Weezer, and The Killers. Post-Cars, Ocasek has worked on both sides of the studio glass, releasing several critically acclaimed solo albums and producing recordings for No Doubt, Weezer, Guided By Voices, Hole, Bad Religion, Jonathan Richman, Le Tigre, The Pink Spiders and others.
