The ultimate roadtrip mix is one of the hardest mixes to perfect. Whilst many reach for the youthful rapid clatter of skate punk/metal or the hairmungus power ballads of Jon Bon Jovi, the more discerning road warrior will always have a glorious collection of lushness and forgotten classics meticulously put together.
As part of Grizzly Bear week Chris Bear has crafted this joyous selection for your listening and driving pleasure. It features 'Wichita Lineman', which is potentially the greatest song of all-time (In Yr Editor's Humble Opinion, etc).
Of the mix, Chris Bear simply says:
This is a mix I made a while ago for a trip to LA...
