Numbered Edition 180-gram LP Sourced from the Original Master Tapes

How did the Cars move beyond their smash 1978 debut and secure their status as one of music's leading bands for years to come? Look no further than the quadruple-platinum Candy-O. Continuing along the streamlined pop paths of its predecessor, the 1979 sophomore effort is preoccupied with desirable women that are as mysterious, sexy, and cool as the group's music - and the record's pin-up cover.

Loaded with minimalist atmospherics, pulsing bass lines, catchy refrains, and labyrinthine synthesizers, the album takes myriad stylistic detours and features one hook-laden chorus after another. Nothing drags or feels out of place.

Half-speed mastered from the original analog tapes, Mobile Fidelity's numbered edition LP brings the Cars' distinctive melodies and exotic arrangements to the forefront. Roy Thomas Baker's vocal production finally shines, with each member's contributions rescued from a cold sonic murk that detracted from the music's impact.

GAIN 2™ Ultra Analog™ System for Vinyl

GAIN 2 Ultra Analog™ is a proprietary cutting system built and designed by legendary design genius Tim De Paravicini, with consultation from one of Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab's founding fathers - Stan Ricker, an audio engineer responsible for many of MFSL's most heralded past releases.

The GAIN 2 Ultra Analog™ system is comprised of a Studer™ tape machine with customised reproduction electronics* and handcrafted cutting amps that drive an Ortofon cutting head on a restored Neumann VMS-70 lathe. (*It is worth noting that independent studies have confirmed that the GAIN 2 Ultra Analog™ system can unveil sonic information all the way up to 122kHz!)

First and foremost, Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs only utilise first generation original master recordings as source material for their releases. MFSL then play back master tapes at half speed enabling the GAIN 2 Ultra Analog™ system to fully extract the master's sonic information. The lacquers are then plated in a specialised process that protects transients in the musical signal. (Due to this process, there may be occasional pops or ticks inherent in initial play back, but as the disc is played more, a high quality stylus will actually polish the grooves and improve the sound). MFSL further ensure optimum sound quality by strictly limiting the number of pressings printed for each release. These limited editions, in addition to being collectors' items, ensure that the quality of the last pressing matches the quality of the first.
