070Various ‘The Ultimate 1950’s Crusin’ Album’ USA Car Songs Vol 2 – DL070

Released: 6th December 2010, Download Only

America is a vast country so it comes as no surprise that so many songs have been written about the car. From the first popular domestic vehicle: Ford’s Model T – to a staggering, aerodynamic variety half a Century later. The American car is highly associated with the emergence of Rock ‘n’ Roll in the 1950’s – a time of liberation, affluence, movement and style. Not forgetting also the car offered some much needed privacy for teenagers down Lovers Lanes and at Drive-in movies!
