Product Description

Digitally remastered and enhanced edition of Cake's 1994 debut album features enhanced previously unreleased, rare live performance footage from the band's first headline tour plus a special Motorcade decal insert. Motorcade Of Generosity was forged during a specific era of the worldwide music scene. While all the tracks were completely accessible to anyone who was paying attention to the radio, the album was a strong reaction to the surging, heavyhanded guitar rock that listeners were accustomed to hearing during the mid/late '90s. --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Try Cake...It's Healthy For You Feb. 28 2002
Format:Audio CD
"You need to straighten your posture and suck in your gut. You need to pull back your shoulders and tighten your butt." So starts Cake's Motorcade of Generosity with track one "Comanche." I so wanted to give this one 5 stars for the originality that this Sacramento 5 display, but had to stop short because alas it's just not a pinnacle type CD, though close. Even tough the first lyrical salvos from Cake's lead singer John McCrea sound like Denise Austin or Richard Simmons health guru pronouncements, I think they turn out to be some absurd advice to help the Native American Indians catch up to the modern world, or more so a parody of how Americans have tried to get the Native American culture to bend to modern ways...I'm not entirely sure.
Cake is unique. They are country and western punk with Tijuana brass fusion. They remind me slightly of that group, who was a group before they were Cracker...Camper Van Beethoven. If the rest of the album held up to the brilliance of such gems as "Jolene", "Rock N' Roll Lifestyle" and "Mr. Mastodon Farm" this work would be pretty incomparable. As it is though it's an anachronistic Wild West Saloon listen...a damn fine one at that. The lyrics and music if you brought it down a couple of notches could be labeled eccentric. As it is though it would have to be labeled as almost controlled manic. When McCrea starts to scream in Jolene, "Get Down, Please get down!!" with fevered intensity, he turns a rock n' roll linguistic phrase usually denoting "shake your booty vigorously" to a frantic command to get your ass right on down 'cuz there's bullets whizzing through the air. Welcome to the new Wild West Saloon.
Go wander the plankway sidewalks of old Sacramento with your Discman and this CD in. Turn the volume up all the way to "11" and punk walk around and watch people stare. It'll be fun, just like this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best album in my collection. June 2 2001
Format:Audio CD
I became a huge Cake fan when "The Distance" hit the radio and I bought Fashion Nugget. I later picked up Prolonging the Magic, which I think is great, but is also distinctly missing the 2 lost band members. However, when I purchased Motorcade of Generosity (which was buried in the racks at a SuperTarget), I realized what a great band Cake really is. It's an excellent record from start to finish. I'm buying it again today because I gave my copy to a good friend of mine when we were sent to different corners of the world (it was one of the most difficult things I've ever done). The consistent fun across the album is helped by a truly phenomenal track like "Jolene". I can count on one hand the number of times a song has given me chills on the first listen, but, even the first time I heard it, I knew I was listening to something extraordinary. I still get goosebumps every time that second guitar comes in at the beginning. Wow -- one of the best songs I've ever heard on the best album I own. Whoever is selling the one used copy at the top of the page either went deaf or is completely insane. Buy this disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome July 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
After the first listen, I thought this cd was just ok. After repeated listenings, I really started to get into it. Every song is very catchy, and the disc definately grows on you. John McCrea's bitter vocals are wry and incisive as always, and the bass lines are driving, the trumpets are soaring, the guitar breaks are rocking, and the drums are banging. John's vocals and the music really mesh together well, rendering a furor of rich, melodic, pop songs. The apex of the cd is probably the funky jamming toward the end of track 5, Tolene. Backround vocalists are chanting an amazing "ahhhh ah ahhh" in the backround while the guitar solo is just shredding and John is begging the listener to "get down!" Awesome. Other high points include the opener Comanche, Rock N Roll Lifestyle, Ain't No Good and I Bombed Korea. This cd is intelligent pop/rock at its best. Any fans of cake or just pop music in general should be smitten with this incredible outing from a stellar band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trust No One (but me) Jan. 20 2003
By MellyH
Format:Audio CD
Please listen not to those who are not true believers...The songs on this and all of Cake's CDs are wonderful. I cannot think of any that I won't listen to. On this album, there are many funny songs that are great sing-alongs and some are just cool like that.
Two songs that were dismissed by other reviewers happen to be faves of mine, "Pentagram" and "Commanche." These songs have seen the light of day several times in my car, at work, and at home. My absolute favorite is "You Part the Waters." One of the most intriguing parts of listening to McCrea's music is trying to figure out what kind of "instrument" he is currently discovered to use in his songs.
Try this band if you have not already, maybe even start with one of their more recent, then bactrack, so you can get the true feel for the band and their wide range of musical talents...

4.0 out of 5 stars Up so close, the Ruby Sees all June 5 2003
By J-po
Format:Audio CD
Considering the popularity of Cake's second, third, and fourh album, this one doensn't really fit in with the sound. This is more of a lo-fi b-sides disk than a first album. Or maybe more of something to get you ready for the REALLY good songs on the other albums.
Not to say that "Motorcade of Generosity" doesn't contain a few gems. My favorites are
Ruby Sees All - very good tone to it, nice sound
Pentagram - A nice country-sounding song about ... umm... human sacrifice
Jolene - Alt. Country with a splash of folk... pan pipes are used in this song for reasons beyond me.
Mr. Mastodon Farm
Haze of Love - nice song about a guy realizing he's sick of his signifigant other.
I'd suggest that if you own their newer works, that you should definately check this album out, if only for a listen at their humble beginnings.

This is Cake's first album and it gets better as is goes along. It's pretty standard Cake fair but a little more uneven and polished than some the next two albums. Read more
