Cruisin’ Freeway U.S.A.

North America was fast becoming the leading automobile nation. The vastness of the country, with its great distances, coupled with an inventive spirit and rapidly growing prosperity since the 1950s, provided the ideal breeding ground for the development and proliferation of fascinating automobiles.

Early on, most vehicles had car radios that played around the clock the music for traveling and cruising that we have selected for this compilation.

Whether driving down Route 66 from Chicago to L.A. or heading for the sunset on the next freeway, whether Riding In The Moonlight or parking on the sinful mile of Lover’s Lane, these songs from the fascinating era of the 1950s and early 1960s tell stories based on adventures and describe that feeling of following the seemingly endless highways with a juicy 8-cylinder under the long hood or just cruising, for fun, from diner to diner.

Focus on Rock ’n’ Roll

Most of the recordings on ‘Destination Freeway’ are pure Rock ‘n’ Roll. This is evidenced not only by extremely popular artists like Gene Vincent, but also by a host of lesser-known rockabillies, most of whose original singles are hard to find today.

A number of groovy rhythm & blues numbers by Al Brown & His Tunetoppers, Clarence Garlow, Chuck Willis and Howlin’ Wolf are also represented, as is the vocal group fraction: Doo-Wop with The Spaniels, The Premiers, Aquatones, Del Vikings or Sammy Hagan & The Viscounts.

Variety comes with Dinah Shore, The Lancers and comedy movie star Jerry Lewis in the form of three pop songs, including a historic sound document sung by Dinah Shore for a Chevrolet commercial.

Driving and rock ’n’ roll – inextricably linked. So get in the car, turn on the music and go for it!
