Just about every rock fan is long familiar with such tracks as "Just What I Needed," "Shake It Up," "Magic," and "Let's Go" to name a few, but the collection's main attraction is its abundance of unfamiliar material.

Such previously released album tracks as "Dangerous Type," "Gimme Some Slack," and "Cruiser" are highlights, as are the rarities "Cool Fool" one of their hardest-rocking tracks ever, "That's It," a cover of Iggy Pop's "Funtime," and a pair of album-closing early demos "Leave or Stay" and "Ta Ta Wayo Wayo". At nearly two and a half hours long, Just What I Needed: The Cars Anthology is the ultimate Cars collection, which only confirms their standing as one of the finest bands of the new wave era.

    Missing song

    What happened to Bye Bye Love? Seems like every greatest hit compilation is always missing at least 1 song. This cd is perfect with that 1 exception

    the best cd out ther

    i one of the youngist cars fans outher 13. I thenk that the cd is good for 2 resones. number one is that rhino records has not grabd control ofthe project and let the cars do allot of the work and provid the demos of songs. likeleave or stay and tatawayoeayo and the early version of night spots and other songs so i give it a 5 star rating
