Hello. Hello Again.

The mighty Not Lame has finally announced a ship date for their eagerly anticipated A Tribute To the Cars featuring Cars songs performed by such artists as Jason Faulkner, Sparkle Jets UK, Jon Auer and Action Action. I always smile when I read in the accompaning booklet to the great double-CD set “Just What I Needed: The Cars Anthology:”

“During the late ’70s and early ’80s, most rock fans were split into two camps, with hardly any common ground. Either you listened to ‘punk” bands like The Clash, Talking Heads, and The Cars, or you were into “mainstream” bands like Aerosmith, Queen, and The Cars.”

True enough! Should be a fun CD to listen to.
