Car Tunes

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Moira McCormick
As purveyors of retro-pop tricked out in contemporary finery, Sugar Beats can't be beat. Their credentials, for one, are impeccable. Leader Sherry Goffin Kondor is the daughter of 24-carat popmeisters Carole King and Gerry Goffin. Their modus operandi -- Kondor and the soulful Russell Velasquez share lead vocals with crackerjack kid singers -- makes these oldies but goodies even more appealing to kids. With Car Tunes, Sugar Beats offer their first themed collection of hits, all having to do with automobiles except the O'Jays' '70s soul hit "Love Train".

As purveyors of retro-pop tricked out in contemporary finery, Sugar Beats can't be beat. Their credentials, for one, are impeccable. Leader Sherry Goffin Kondor is the daughter of 24-carat popmeisters Carole King and Gerry Goffin. Their modus operandi -- Kondor and the soulful Russell Velasquez share lead vocals with crackerjack kid singers -- makes these oldies but goodies even more appealing to kids. With Car Tunes, Sugar Beats offer their first themed collection of hits, all having to do with automobiles except the O'Jays' '70s soul hit "Love Train". The variety here is most impressive -- '80s tracks like Fine Young Cannibals' "She Drives Me Crazy" "drives" -- get it?, Gary Numan's proto-electronica "Cars," and Aretha Franklin's effervescent "Freeway of Love" mix with '60s favorites like Wilson Pickett's "Mustang Sally," the Beach Boys' "Fun Fun Fun," and Roger Miller's "King of the Road" fret not, parents: the line "I ain't got no cigarettes" has been changed to "I don't want what I can't get". This baker's dozen ends with "Route 66," leaving listeners with a sense of the wide-open road; all in all, a perfect album to accompany those summertime car trips.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
As the title suggests, Sugar Beats: Car Tunes collects road-tested favorites like "On the Road Again," "Freeway of Love," "Cars," and "She Drives Me Crazy" as sung by the Sugar Beats. "Car Wash," "King of the Road," "Expressway to Your Heart," and "Hitch Hike" are some of the other surprisingly eclectic oldies on this entertaining album, which may make the next road trip a little easier to bear.

    Sugar Beats rocks our world!

    Our family NEVER agreed on music before Sugar Beats. My 12 year old daughter, and 8 and 3 year old sons had a hard time agreeing on anything. Since we bought Sugar Beats CDs, (we have all but Car Tunes--we're buying it today) there has been more peace in the car than ever before. I look forward to this new CD!
