    Cool list, quite a few that I hadn’t heard of.

  2. WOW. I’m impressed. Almost exactly everything I would pick for my ideal road trip playlist, so almost perfect. (Haha.) With a few nice surprises! Good taste. Props to you, Kindra!

  3. P.S. I feel Canned Heat’s “Going Up To The Country” is an absolute necessity. 🙂
