Sly reminds me of those early days when my buddy's were coming home from Nam saying that was one hell of a party over there....
Lately, it has been a mixture of Hank III, The Dead South, Old crow Medicine Show, and the Trailerpark Troubadours
I would probably like to listen to some 60s music if I had a radio or player in one of my cars. But none of them work so I listen to the engine.
I like anything with some "cowbell" in it!....
Jerry Jeff Walker and the Lost Gonzo Band. RIP Jerry, died 3 days ago.
Piss'in in the wind!
He finally got off "of that L.A. freeway"
Ever since we bought this CD, it was on our playlist during our coastal cruises and then for our cross country road trips. It is a rare album for many years until the producers decided to make an mp3 version. Now, it is on several streaming services. But, when we bought the original CD, it was normally priced. The songs were some of the best music from Daryl Hall, by himself. That guy is a creative genius.
The whole playlist is fabulous and on our USA road trips, it made the drive through the countryside palatable. Whether it was barren desert, empty bush country or packed downtown cities. The music was made for cruising, for us to visit the old home grounds in OKC and other places of interest. After those road trips, we played it in and around our house, the other sporty car and we even played it in our garage CD/cassette/AM/FM/stereo player…remember those?
Then one day, our friend heard the songs and said that CD is rare, as it now costs way too much to buy over the counter or from Amazon. We couldn’t be happier as it was a fabulous album. But, on our last lengthy road trip, we accidently left the CD in the car’s player. We drove the station wagon everywhere and when we were ready to get a larger station wagon for our then, infant granddaughter, we traded in the old station wagon for a newer one.
We were so happy for the new spacious station wagon. Our son was also glad we had a larger station wagon, too. They were in the realm of "larger is better." So our son and his wife thought nothing of the two grandparents wheeling their own "newborn" daughter all over So Cal anytime.
But, as good as the Daryl Hall CD was, it became a "missing in action" album. We could not figure out where it was. We called the trade in dealer to check the old station wagon’s cd player, but the station wagon was already gone to used car heaven and was no longer on the lot. We searched high and low. The last time we heard it was on our USA road trip and then we traded in the station wagon for another. So, it must have been in the station wagon's CD player
So, for the next several years, we could not listen to our favorite cruising music, until one day someone got the great idea of creating an mp3 version for the masses. New technology comes to the rescue, again.
