The Cadillacs this week on The Juke In The Back

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.
The Cadillacs began their journey in 1953 as The Carnations and when they changed their name they helped usher in a new era of automobile names for RB vocal groups. Lead tenor Earl “Speedo” Carroll and bass singer Bobby Phillips forged a friendship that would carry on from their days growing up in Harlem until the day each of them passed on. While together, The Cadillacs produced some of the coolest jump tunes from the classic “Speedo” to the jazzy “Down The Road” and the killer “No Chance.” As a ballad group, Speedo and the boys recorded the version of the immortal “Gloria” that all other vocal groups are measured against as well as other gorgeous tunes like “You Are” and “The Girl I Love.” Matt The Cat features an interview with Earl Carroll himself, so that he can tell The Cadillacs story in his own words. We lost Earl Carroll and a little piece of early rock n’ roll on November 25, 2012, but Speedo will never be forgotten in the hearts of those who dig REAL vocal group harmony.
