Overview

While the rest of the titles in Polygram's Ultimate Driving Collection are spiced up with phrases like "Traffic Jammin'" and "Highway Rockin'," this installment needs just one word to get its point across: California. While the goofy miracle-of-computers artwork splicing a highway into a surfer on his wave is nearly unforgivable, the comp does make up for it with an entertaining set of music. Highlights include classic instrumentals from the Ventures ("Walk, Don't Run") and Chantays ("Pipeline"), as well as classic, sugary pop like "Mony Mony" and Sir Douglas Quintet's "She's About a Mover." Nothing really ties these songs into California, but they certainly wipe out the unfortunate cover art's bad aftertaste. Overall, not a bad budget buy.
