It’s been nearly 40 years since the Cars played their first area show at the Cleveland Agora. The show was broadcast live by WMMS-FM and has circulated in bootleg form for decades since then. Rhino Records executive John Hughes, an Elyria native who now lives in the California area, says that Live At The Agora, 1978 is the latest wave in a reissue campaign that began last year. “I remember the show and I remember the WMMS live concert broadcasts. I thought that there was a Cars show out there and sure enough, I went to the vault with our team and found this tape. There it was. We took a listen to it and were amazed,” he says. “I think that people will be really pleasantly surprised when they hear the energy of this show. It’s very early on in their career. I think it’s probably one of the higher profile shows they’d ever done outside of the Boston area since getting signed. I’m not kidding when I say that it’s kind of a fierce live set.”
