Various - 120 Years Of The Cadillac Car (CD)

Various - 120 Years Of The Cadillac Car (CD)


Caddies were the ultimate expression of America’s post-war prosperity and the 1950s dream. The automobile brand will be one-hundred and twenty years old on 22 August 2022, and Atomicat Records shines its headlights onto the Cadillac car with an inspiring variety of songs. 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 Records Anniversary series celebrates 120 Years of the Cadillac Car (ACCD117) with thirty motorvatin’ songs from 1948 through to 1962 paying homage to the gadget-laden ”Fabulous Fifties” dream car.

Atomicat takes a different slant to the topic, and we source songs from the genres of Rhythm & Blues, 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 can hear how the car entered into the different cultures and influenced songwriters.
