I dig Candy-O better, but:

Just What I Needed
My Best Friend's Girl
Good Times Roll
Don't Cha Stop
Bye Bye Love

Definitely a great song, but I guess I've heard too many times on the radio.

Perfect album. None of my choices are deep cuts, but it’s hard when there are so many classics on it.

1. Just What I Needed
2. My Best Friend’s Girl
3. You’re All I’ve Got Tonight
4. Let the Good Times Roll
5. Moving In Stereo

I recently did a lecture on bootlegs and the question of commodification of music, author rights, and what fans are consuming. When I got to the mid-70s, I explained the difficulty of breaking new artists on the radio because the classic rock format had taken hold. So record companies sent out these live recordings of new groups to generate buzz. It was also an effort to counter bootleggers somehow, even tho it was great source material for bootleggers. In some cases, it'd be taping the broadcast, while in others deejays sold those records after they were played, which gave bootleggers an opportunity to buy them and then manufacture new vinyl from that source.

So, my first real favourite band was the Cars, and I found the above bootleg in Saskatoon's biggest used record store. It cost a ridiculous amount of money. I'm gonna say $50 in the early 80s. But I had to have it. So I sold shit off, saved my paper route money, and hoped like hell it wouldn't be sold. And I eventually bought it. And learned … the Cars weren't that good live. Just zero spark. I was gutted. I held onto that boot for years but eventually traded it in when I got into punk and needed credit for who knows what album. Maybe a decade ago, I downloaded a copy off Dime a Dozen just to have a copy. Listened to it and, yup, the Cars were a great studio band, but dull live.

Hello,

I saw them live in late 70's-early 80's (I think in Glens Falls, NY). There were robotic but not in a Kraftwerk way. They played their songs, did a good job, not much difference from the records, and then they left.

That's mind of how it sounded on that record. Maybe there was some studio clean up, even on a quasi-boot, but they sounded like they were just playing the studio version all the way.

I still vividly remember buying this CD from the mall chain music store (I think it was a Hastings). Probably some of the first "contemporary" type music I ever started listening to. Perhaps telling that my fave song off this is a re-recording of a Kerplunk song tho.

1. Welcome to Paradise
2. Burnout
3. When I Come Around
4. Basket Case
5. Having a Blast

The singles off this album were all really strong, but there are some equally strong album cuts too. Great record.

I prefer Kerplunk to Dookie. How do you compare the re-recording of "Paradise" as they are both great. Dookie just has more oomph with the bass to my ears.
