CARS ROCK N ROLL.

CARS…ROCK ’N’ ROLL.

THERE WAS NEVER A TIME WHERE THE OBSESSION WITH MOTOR VEHICLES WAS MORE INTENSE THAN 1950’S AMERICA. THIS WEEK, IN A SLIGHTLY EXTENDED VERSION WE HAVE A FANTASTIC ROCKIN’ SOUNDTRACK FROM THE 50’S & 60’S (WITH A COUPLE A SWERVE BALLS!) TO CELEBRATE THIS. STARTING WITH WHAT MANY WOULD ARGUE WAS THE FIRST EVER ROCK ’N’ ROLL RECORD-

JACKIE BRENSTON & A 19 YEAR OLD IKE TURNER & THE DELTA CATS (OR RHYTHM KINGS) WITH ‘ROCKET 88’…BUT ALSO A LOOK OUT FOR THE JIMMY LIGGINS TUNE, CADILLAC BOOGIE……VROOM VROOM……OR THE BIG JOE TURNER WITH PETE JOHNSON, ROCKET BOOGIE 88……VROOM VROOM…

……………

AS MOST 50’S/CAR ENTHUSIASTS WILL KNOW, THERE’S ALREADY BEEN A COUPLE OF FIRST RATE CAR COMPS,SO BY AN LARGE I’VE TRIED TO AVOID EM, AN HOPEFULLY AVOIDED ANY BUMPS IN THE ROAD!

ORIGINALLY ENTITLED ‘DADDY LOVES HIS AUTOMOBILE, MUMMY DOES TOO’.
