I guess a lot of these tracks are now classified as yacht rock, and I actually bought a triple CD with that title when I bought this one. There is onlly one track on both of them (Christopher Cross - Ride like the wind) but several artists are represented on both with different tracks. This one contains a few sixties tracks (California dreamin', San Franciso) and there are a few more female singers here than on Yacht rock, but they are clearly aimed at the same market.

I highly recommend both, although the packaging on this triple CD is not as good - getting the middle CD out without fouling the others is a little tricky.

Some if not most classics of the era, 60 odd tracks, good mix all through the album, recommended just for the bargain price.

Great modern country album, well worth a listen. Highly recommended.
Takes a bit of time to be delivered by US sellers, worth the wait, for the money saved.
