Description

120 Years Of The Cadillac Car (Various Artists) on CD

Atomicat Records Anniversary series shines it's headlights onto the Cadillac car with our album 120 Years of the Cadillac Car, which comprises thirty Cadillac-based songs sourced from 1948 through to 1962. The concept of the Cadillac car was the brainchild of; William Murphy, Lemuel Bowen, and Henry M. Leland who designed the first-ever Cadillac car in 1902, and this album is dedicated to them and their automobile which became synonymous with the "Fabulous Fifties." Atomicat takes a different slant to the topic, and we feature songs from the genres of, Rhythm & Blues, Doo-Wop, Rock 'n' Roll, and Hillbilly. Then we dig a little deeper and include groups named after the automobile, and finally songs that have Cadillac in the lyrics. Atomicat's seven-dimension tribute allows you to hear how the car musically entered into different cultures and influenced songwriters. The album commences with a throttle to the floor speed-crazy R&B, and Blues section presenting: Jimmy Liggins and His Drops Of Joy driving rocker Cadillac Boogie, the dream of owning a colourful model from Maurice King and His Wolverines (vocal chorus) Bea Baker, I Want A Lavender Cadillac, the raucous Hot Lips Page and His Orchestra pay tribute to the automobile with The Cadillac Song, and the bluesmen Jerry McCain and His Upstarts go Courtin' In A Cadillac, and Bo Diddley, simply adores the Cadillac. The Rock 'n' Roll musicians look at the fun side of owning a Cadillac: Hal Willis, My Pink Cadillac, Larry Dowd and The Rock-A-Tones, and Donnie Huffman both sing about a Pink Cadillac. The flashy Aquatones dream is, Wanted (A Solid Gold Cadillac) and Sonny Wallace desires a Black Cadillac. The rockers also sing about the loss and dark side of the Cadillac car: Baker Knight and The Knightmares, the girl has left him, but please Bring My Cadillac Back, Joyce Green sings about the Black Cadillac but teenager Green's song is about a wayward man who will soon have his final journey in the car
