To celebrate The Cars 2018 induction into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — honoring the legendary band's incredible musical legacy and enormous commercial success — Rhino presents an expanded 2LP edition for Shake It Up.

The expanded double LP edition features the original album — remastered in 2016 — expanded with rare and unreleased bonus tracks. Illustrated booklets accompany the music and contain liner notes written by renowned rock journalist David Fricke, who details the history of each album with new interviews by band member David Robinson.

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 2 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 Edition, including an early version of "Since You're Gone," the demo for "Shake It Up" and an unreleased song called "Midnight Dancer."

The Cars are an American rock band that emerged from the new wave scene in the late 1970s. The band originated in Boston, Massachusetts in 1976. With its sleek, mechanical pop/rock, the band racked up a string of platinum albums and Top 40 singles that made it one of the most popular American rock 'n' roll bands of the late '70s and early '80s. The Cars were inspired by proto-punk, garage rock, and bubblegum pop. The Cars were named "Best New Artist" in the 1978 Rolling Stone Readers' Poll and won "Video of the Year" for "You Might Think" at the first MTV Video Music Awards. As of 2001, the Cars have sold more than 23 million albums in the United States.
