Quick! I need some autumn road music suggestions!

Going to do some excruciatingly long driving and I'm in a deperate need of some good "road" albums. So far I only got The Charm of the Highway Strip by Magnetic Fields and a couple of East River Pipe albums...and I've been told that United States Live boxset by Laurie Anderson is a must. What else do I need?

Weekend - La Variete...the most autumnal record I've ever heard.

Eleventh Dream Day - Prairie School Freakout

They've just reissued it as well, which is nice.

Joni Mitchell's 'Hejira' is pretty much THE autumn road album.

if it starts to storm, Alec Empire + Merzbow, Live at the CBGB's would be wonderful

Vashti Bunyan's "Just Another Diamond Day" will be nice (assuming you aren't sleepy when you listen to it).

Yo la Tengo, "And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out"
Mojave 3, "Excuses for Travellers"
maybe Sea and Cake, "Oui"

and definitely "Hejira".

Nick Drake = autumnal.. Bryter Layter would be his best "driving" album, I suppose

a big second vote for "only life." there are also some get individual tracks you could put on a mix cd for the trip, like "silver" by echo and the bunnymen and zep's "ramble on."

thirteen years pass...

Revive! I know it's still technically summer but ...
I second the Feelies — any Feelies.
Also I would add that any Mark Mulcahy music — Miracle Legion and Polaris, especially — seems to provide a perfect soundtrack for the fall.
