Emerging from a tempest of edgy, electrifying dance-rock, new wave, and new romantic hits that swirled within Germany in the early '80s rose The Twins, comprised of musicians Ronny Schreinzer and Sven Dohrow. For several years, their compelling, self-written, and self-produced productions filled dance floors throughout their homeland, as well as those of neighboring countries like Italy, where the group's records could often be found at the top of the pop chart. The Twins were inspired by bands like Ultravox, Gary Numan, OMD and Depeche Mode. Their 1st album, released on Monday, 31st August 1981. The first CD version was released in 1995, and a re-release came out in 2004.
The Cars' studio albums have been boxed before - most of them showed up on 2009's Original Album Series, while in 2014 there was a cheap and basic set called Studio Album Collection, 1978-1987 - but the 2016 set The Elektra Years 1978-1987 is handsomely produced and newly remastered, two features absent on the previous sets. Ric Ocasek handled the digital remaster, while David Robinson is the art director on the set, overseeing the replicas of the original albums and coming up with the spiffy retro artwork. Sadly, "Tonight She Comes" - a hit single featured on 1985's Greatest Hits and never part of an actual album - wasn't added as a bonus track to either Heartbeat City or Door to Door, but that's the only flaw on this otherwise nicely assembled, affordable set.
