A couple of classic Cars albums are coming back to stores with remastered sound — and a little extra music to help make it worth fans' reinvestment.

The band's fourth and fifth albums, 1981's Shake It Up and 1984's Heartbeat City, are scheduled to receive the remastered and expanded reissue treatment in the next few weeks, with expanded editions of both releases scheduled to arrive in stores on March 30.


Available on CD and digital formats as well as double-LP vinyl, the remasters are slated to include a variety of non-album cuts, including demos, remixes and studio outtakes, as well as new liner notes featuring essays from noted critic David Fricke.

Check out complete track listings for both albums below.

These two releases continue Rhino's Cars catalog reissue series, and arrive just in time for fans to help celebrate the group's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — and although current plans don't seem to call for a follow-up to the band's 2011 reunion LP, Move Like This, it hasn't entirely been ruled out either. As drummer David Robinson said after the group's impending induction was announced, "You never know" what the future might hold.
