I bet you had fun making this one, there is an endless pool of geography songs to choose from and California has probably got more than its fair share seeing how so many artist are either from there or go there to make it in the biz.  Alright let's do this thing:
 
 
1.  This is actually very similar melody to their hit.  The meandering lead guitar is really good though.

2.  I am always a big fan of a simple acoustic rhythm strum and banjo, very nice.

3.  Actually never heard this one.  No mistaking the Beach Boys. Little side note, there is always a tinge of what might have been when I listen to them because as a child I was a huge boys fan and had almost all of their albums.  Lost them all in one of my families moves sometime in the 80s, I bet some of them were worth quite a penny in today's market. {#Doh}
4.  Can't help but be happy listening to this bouncy tune.  Makes me want to do the Carlton. {#Bounce}

5.  I have always loved this song. This is one of those songs that I  have to annoyingly sing along loudly as all of those who may be unfortunate enough to be in proximity are forced to listen in absolute horror.  This time it is my poor dog Jake.{#Eek}

6. Another familiar tune. They really had a nice sound, pleasing to the masses without being too generic.

8.  Don't know what time period this Petty is but it sounds a lot like the Wilbury's which of course is a good thing. Half expect to Orbison to chime in somewhere.  Also makes you think maybe Petty was the dominant songwriter in that project....hmm.
 
12. Love everything Farrar touches. There is always the debate of Farrar or Tweedy.  My answer is oh yes.

13.  I really like this.  My favorite song on the mix so far.

14.  Always thought this guy would be bigger, not that he hasn't had a successful career just thought he would be bigger.  Very similar to Jakob Dylan who I also think is a little under rated. I have not heard anything from him that wasn't good.

16. Was looking up the history of Luna and I had no idea it spawned from Galaxie 500.  Huh, learn something new every day.

18. This whole mix so far is kinda like a time capsule for me. It takes me back to late 90s early 2000s which was a very good time for me.

19. Of course the title of this song makes me think of Counting Crows, but this could not be further from that. {#Mrgreen}  This reminds of me of a mix between John Hartford and Richard Thompson.

20. Very nice reminds of me of The LAs

22. Well alright, saved the best for last. Love the rich sound, Phil Spectre would be proud.
 
 
 
Well since I only comment on the songs I really like, the more words the more I liked the mix and "I got blisters on me fingers!"  This did have a real 90s vibe to it overall so it had that time capsule feel which is something I am exploring now with my next mix.  And like everyone else loved the art work and particularly the use of photo paper; love the sheen and the feel of it which will hopefully soothe my fingers from all of the typing.  More of a grapefruit man myself but I imagine they got a lot of those in Callieforny too.  Totally choice and gnarly, dude.{#Cowboy}

This was the perfect mix to listen to driving around water logged NJ this past week. Though I don't know if I'd trade for wild fires.
Great cover art, front and back. You must have one hell of a printer to get that deep black. Onwards to the review!

The Shocking Blue have another song other than Venus? Who knew!

The Beach Boys are the quintessential California band. I do confess that I have never purchased a BB record, not even Pet Sounds. Don't hate me for it!

Hey I thought the East Coast was the Best Coast! 

The Low song is a familiar tune, it's got great hooks. 

About 75% of Tom Petty's songs end up on the radio so it's refreshing to hear a deeper track. Pretty good ode to CA from a FLA guy.

Shawn Mullins does a good Petty impersonation.

I've always liked the Luna song, brings a smile to my ears every time. 

I knew that was Kathleen Edwards with Doe. He likes to collaborate with women I guess. Jill Sobule did some work with him not so long ago. 

"you're my future history" - Now that is a great lyric from Mr. Nathan. Wish I came up with that one. 

When the mix was over I was wondering where the "Going to California" track was that you promised. How did it miss the cut?

I'm midway thru my 2nd listen and keep hearing more goodies as I get familiar with the mix. Really digging it. My very first RPMCC mix was about New York and I always wanted to bookend that with a California mix. I just didn't have the selections to pull it off. Maybe not being immersed in the culture/area is part of it. Your collection was one I would have been proud to have put out. Rock on Golden State! "And if California slides into the ocean, like the Mystics and Statistics say it will. I predict this motel will be standing, until I pay my bill" - Warren Zevon

Thanks guys.
Marty... "The Golden State" by John Doe... the female vocalist is Kathleen Edwards. She's very nice indeed. As Radio Paradise listeners, we should all be familiar with her.
I was going to include her song "Goodnight California" on my CD... but I only had so much room.

Frankster... That John Doe song really doesn't have much to do about California... the title fits.
I was looking to put "California Here I Come" by Al Jolson on this disc. I then realized I didn't need to go that far back for songs with the same title and both totally different.
Ahhh. The PCH!
I guess I need to California City songs next...

This one was really well executed. Lots of new stuff to me, plus some good familiar tunes. Standouts:

1. Sounded really familiar, eventually decided it wasn't. Strong start.

6. Another band I hadn't paid much attention to. I see I was missing something.

8. The only song I expected to hear on this that actually appeared. Tom can crash any party as far as I'm concerned.

12. This fit really well, and made me listen twice.

13. Lovely, chill vibe. Another band I'd never heard of.

14. A bit crunchier than most of the rest of the disk. Channeling the ghost of Tom Petty?

15. Female voices are a nice contrast to the rest of the CD. Sounds like something I need more of.

17. Is that X? No, just John Doe? Still damned good. And who is that singing along? I like her.

19. Didn't recognize Dave Alvin without the Blasters around him, and I like him a lot better this way.

21. Reminded me of a book I read a long time ago: The Last Days of the Late, Great State of California. I confess I liked the book better.

22. Another new band to me. Good note to close on.

This was really well put together, nothing on here I wouldn't listen to again. And did I mention the cover art? Well done, sir!

Listened last night, liked it immensely. Kinda like topping off a visit to Orange Julius with a bowl of orange sherbet—not something I want to do every night, but a fine diversion once i a while. And no brain freeze!

We have a few "fruit crate" things around this house. Justine's also from orange ranch country. This great mural's in the next town over:

My daughter used Pixalmater and rearranged the letters to fit.
I know I could have done it. But she's like "Get out of the way dad. I'll do this!" 
That's a cool mural!
There's a lot of examples all over the internet of them. I've even found tee shirts with those labels on them.

I always wanted to do a California Song compilation. Years ago, I penciled down some list of songs that keep on growing. I started to collect the tunes, but never got around to it... until I joined this group. Thanks for the push!
This cover sleeve was inspired by my parents. Yep. Way back when they first got married- 1952... they, not being real wealthy, used orange crates for furniture. Being Anaheim, California (Orange County... get it) natives, they were at the heart of the citrus industry in southern California. These crates were everywhere. When I came along a couple of years later, that industry was just starting to wind down. It was still going, but it had hit its peak by then. 
There were still orange groves, pickers, packers, freezers and juice companies around. I remember living behind a big open field and the trucks driving by on the other side of that field down Main Street, in a long line, hauling oranges to be processed all day and night long. That's all gone now. Replaced by people and houses.
In the garage, there in their first house, were remnants of my parents "furniture". Now filled with my dads "good junk".
I was thinking back on those good old days... when searching on the internet... I found out how popular "Orange Crate Art" had become. I found this piece that I remembered seeing on the end of one of my dad's crates. I always liked the colors. Even though they were pretty well banged up by the time I saw them.
So I "borrowed" this shot. Of course, it was  full of watermarks and it needed some cleaning/ sharpening up. Not to mention, I needed to get rid of the "Oranges". Did you know you can get "Songs" out of "Oranges"? My daughter helped me with that. I could have done it... she's just way faster than I am.
I'll show the back sleeve in a few when all of you get a chance to listen and critique.

I reluctantly ejected the Songbird mix from my player this morning and replaced it with a ray of sunshine. Good timing as we got about 6 inches of rain dumped on us last night from Ida.
