Flash Cadillac: There's No Face Like Chrome (Epic)

Greg Shaw, Phonograph Record, May 1974

OF ALL THE GROUPS to come out of the Fifties, Flash Cadillac has always shown the greatest promise, and that promise is fulfilled in this, their second album. From the first time I saw them, some three years ago, I knew this band had something special, some extra degree of originality, and a lot more of the spirit that made '50s rock great than any of their contemporaries. Yet I could never have predicted that they would be able to advance so far, in so short a time. I am, in a word, astonished.
