My friend Jeff Borden made me a driving mix tape when I took delivery on my 1986 Honda Civic CRX. That was 20 years ago, and let me tell you, “Shift Slappin’ With the Kokomos” holds up, a funny and imaginative blend of driving music that bears no resemblance to what I’m calling Lame-O List One and Lame-O List Two, from today’s Freep.
I have only this to say: To not include “Freeway of Love”?!?!? IN ARETHA FRANKLIN’S HOMETOWN?!?!?!?!
