Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Cake July 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
Motorcade is a great cd. This is the first of Cakes cd's and with Motorcade, you really get a great sense of what this band is all about. This cd has many great songs on it including 'Jolene' (my favorite cake song,) and 'Rock n Roll Lifestyle.' Motorcade has perfect blends of guitar, trumpet, bass, and John Mcrea's voice. With superb lyrics and sound, Motorcade is a must have for Cake lovers, or lovers of good music.

5.0 out of 5 stars CAKE!!! July 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
Yeah, this band rules. I still haven't gotten around to picking up some of their newer material, but this disc smokes. If you feel like kicking back with some seriously good music, this is the disc for you. Great singer, unique sound, creative lyrics....you can't go wrong with Cake. If you've only heard their later material, do yourself a favor and pick up "Motorcade of Generosity" to see where it all began.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot start for a great band Sept. 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
Probably my favorite of all 4 CAKE CD's, but it's hard to say, as I love every track they have put out.
Rock N Roll Lifestyle is a classic, but who can ignore the quirky, yet addictive Mr. Mastodon Farm?
This is not a disc to skip.

3.0 out of 5 stars An ok album with some hidden gems... Aug. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
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. Rock and Roll Lifestyle is one of those spoken-word songs that show how smooth the lead singers voice can be. Mr. Mastodon Farm, I Bombed Korea, Aint No Good end the album on a strong note after a lack luster first half.
One annoying problem with this CD is that it was produced very cheaply and the songs are recorded at a lower volume than standard albums. This can be really annoying because it is quite a bit lower and of course I never remember to turn it back down afterwards until I've already blown my eardrums out.
Bottom Line: Some good Cake songs but not thier best work.

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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical genius!! April 15 2003
By Eric
Format:Audio CD
this is the last of the 4 cake c.d.'s that i purchased. the first of which i purchased for absolutely no good reason (other than a friend had "fashion nugget.") was "prolonging the magic",which makes even less sense. "motorcade" has to be my absolute favorite (although i didn't get it upon my first 10-20 listens), though i love all of their efforts.i was SO not impressed with any current band (believing the best music has already been made), until i stumbled upon these guys. i was infatuated with S.T.P. and the 'PUMPKINS for a while, but my affection for CAKE is true love! i can't express what i feel for this band. without trying to get fancy and technical to articulate what it is about them, i will just say that my discovery of these guys is the best thing since my love affair with AC/DC. CAKE is genius!!

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...
