Thanks to Linda for starting the other thread. I thought I'd start another one. What albums are your favorite to listen to while driving?

I gave up listening to albums while driving. It was too difficult to change them on the turntable, and the needle kept skipping every time I hit a bump or the wind gusted just right...

I didn't really start the other thread, I was just the first one to get the ball rolling and post.
As for this thread...well I usually customize albums these days and mix and match tunes. But if I had to choose complete albums to play in the Roadster what comes to mind is:
for nice summer nights: Sketches of Spain-Miles Davis

more upbeat: The Very Best of Manu Dibango: Afridelic

Come on, if Chrysler can do it, surely you can figure out how to get an LP player in your Datsun.

Back in the '70s, I had a reverb in my roadster. Had to finally take it out because the suspension would make the spring inside do all sorts of weird things while I was driving.

Since this is the 40 year anniversary of the Summer of Love (1967) here are a few albums you might have been hearing on the radio in your brand new 1967 Datsun Roadster............

Put on your bell bottoms, tye-dyed t-shirt and listen to the period-correct music :-)

"Surrealistic Pillow" Jeferson Airplane
"Grateful Dead " Grateful Dead
"Are you Experienced?" The Jimi Hendrix Experience

And for the 'Summer o' luv...

And it's one, two, three,

Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is Vietnam;
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

I'll bet if everyone put their favorite song while driving the car it would make an awesome album . lol . (memory chip ) to put together and play while driving . if that makes sense . like acdc for those about to rock . now it's not one of my favorite songs of them at all But , when I'm in the Roadster , it's the shit ! I turn it up and it has something more when I'm driving that car . idk am I alone in this ? or would it make a great cd? or whatever it's called now .

Some great albums so far!

Even though I’ve fully converted to streaming and digital music years ago, I still love albums and the concept of an album.
A few that I keep in my phone while travelling, which are good Roadster soundtracks....depending on the mood:
Grant Green- Alive!
Scorpions - World Wide Live
NOFX- Self Entitled
The Record Company- Give it Back to You
Robin Trower- Bridge of Sighs

(Edit- just noticed the thread necromancy)
