By Scott Goldfine

The Cars burst out of Boston in the 1970s with a tight, lean sound that injected a healthy dose of traditional rock into the then-hot new wave scene. Leader Ric Ocasek and company turned out some of the tastiest pop-rock confections of the period as evidenced on the two-CD set “The Cars Anthology: Just What I Needed.”

This definitive collection includes outtakes and is beautifully packaged.
