Always include both your first and last name when placing an order. Otherwise, the order will not be processed.

Notice regarding shipping and transit times:

Due to the current global situation, transit times for domestic and international packages has increased. Foreign packages that normally take 1-3 weeks have taken as much as three months (or more) to arrive. While some packages are still arriving fairly quickly, I ask that anyone placing an order to please be patient. Transit times of other packages that may have arrived sooner have no bearing on how fast or slow the next package will be received. Tracking numbers do not always update once a package leaves the USA. I have no control over this or insight as to when your package may arrive. If this is a problem, please do not place an order.​

The cost of international shipping is the same for 1 or 2 CD's and then 3 to 8 CD's. At this time, I am only providing international shipping for select countries as there have been some territories in which deliveries are restricted or continue to be very problematic. Thank you.

Ric Ocasek / Beatitude CD (Expanded Edition)

Out of stock
Product Details


As the lead singer and song writer for New Wave legends The Cars, the late Ric Ocasek created a catalog of unforgettable hit singles that appealed to mainstream and underground audiences alike. For his debut solo album Beatitude in 1982, Ocasek put his experimental foot forward to create an album that included his trademark Cars sound, but also veered into a more electronic direction. Aided by drum machines and bringing keyboards to the forefront, Beatitude spawned two well-received singles. Something To Grab For could have fit on any Cars album with its upbeat and catchy hook, while Jimmy Jimmy takes a serious tone tackling teenage hardships and challenges. This newly remastered CD edition now includes several bonus tracks, including the 1983 re-recording of Jimmy Jimmy in both its single and dance mix versions. Also included are remixes of the electro-epic Connect Up To Me and the soulful Prove.
