Hot Rode Holiday An adjunct to Hot Rod Rock, a Right Stuff CD series sponsored by Hot Rod magazine, Hot Rod Holiday (1997) mainly includes songs from the rich catalog of Capital/EMI Records - home to the Beach Boys, the Ventures, and other artists popular with grease monkeys and the ladies who love them. The disc has a high quotient of great songs but a few nagging problems. First, only one song, the Beach Boys' "Little Saint Nick," is actually about a car. Second, while at least one cut is very hard-to-find (Gary U.S. Bonds' "Call Me For Christmas"), serious collectors will already own most of these sixteen tracks. Finally, the Dion and Fats Domino tracks included here were cut in 1993, not in the artists' respective heydays. But, while I quibble (guys like me always do), most consumers (and gearheads) will enjoy the hell out of Hot Rod Holiday. Gentlemen, start your engines!
