wanderlust

I once went cross country. My father was newly stationed in Maine, so he bought a Dodge Ramcharger that Summer, loaded up the entire family (Mom, us kids and the grandparents), and we drove from California, along the coastal states, stopped in the South, then up to New England. An amazing experience, and probably one of my last favorite family memories before our lives broke down, shortly thereafter.

Focusing on the bright side, this road trip consisted of AM radio and a worn out Pablo Cruise 8-track that drove me nuts.


Pablo Cruise - Love Will Find A Way


Elton John - Benny & the Jets


O'Jays - Used To Be My Girl


Nicolette Larson - Lotta Love


I feel wanderlust kicking in, and another road trip must be had. Some thoughts on a soundtrack...


Sun Kil Moon - Trucker's Atlas


The Durutti Column - Sketch for Summer


Smashing Pumpkins - 1979


Boz Scaggs - Lowdown


Toto - Georgie Porgy


The Black Ghosts - It's Your Touch


Digital Underground - Sons of the P


Zapp - More Bounce to the Ounce
