Clapton's 461 Ocean Blvd is a great driving album. Also, when I made tapes, Stills-Young Band. Or just about any Clash, as it fits my angry demeanor behind the wheel! Also, Hornsby's Harbor Lights is a great record throughout (I listened to it tonight while washing the car, if that counts).

It varies on my mood, the locale, the time of day. But if I'm roadtripping I usually have a few hundred CD's on board. And some that are always included are Stones, ABB, DTB, Pink Floyd, Little Feat Waiting for Columbus, Paul Simon Graceland, various Grateful Dead recordings, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Rickie Lee Jones, Roger Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Dire Straights, a smoking version of Freddie King doing Going Down - always wonderful for driving down the open road with the wind in your hair, Govt Mule, Van Morrison, Roger Waters, Clapton, Santana, Leon Russell (a dose of Jumping Jack Flash/Youngblood is most excellent driving material), Delaney & Bonnie and Friends, Derek and the Dominoes, ....

My friends call me a freak, because I have a set rule with my road trips:

Start the drive with Jessica. The, play Sublime (the eponymous album) the whole way through.

Then, whatever comes to mind.

Is the CCR album "Chronicles"? Easily the greatest greatest hits compilation ever.

YES!! That is the name of the album!! It seems as though it was desingend for a road trip!!

Proud Mary is by fay my favorite song of all time by any group ever. The CCR version first, the Ike and Tina version a close second. My second favorite tune on that LP is "Lodi".

I put my iPod on shuffle. It's like having a radio station tailored to my tastes. I never know what's coming up next, but I know it'll be good.

When I'm alone it's always something new, or someting i don't think I've given a "fair shake" on previous listen(s), and something like Humble Pie Rockin' the Fillmore, or Live at the Fillmore East, I prefer live music on the road.

When I travel with my wife, Fairport Convention, Beau'Soliel (SP) Asleep at the Wheel.

This is too difficult to tansert because it very much depends on the time of year for me.....

I have Summer albums, Fall albums and Winter albums..... Spring time is usually the same stuff as winter albums though.
