What is Your Favorite Album for a Weekend Morning Drive?

You wake up to the dreaded, piercing buzz of your alarm clock. Disoriented, you stumble out of bed; stretching, yawning, craving more rest. It’s 6:00am. After fighting the urge to return to sleep, you soon realize that today is different, it’s Saturday. There won’t be a commute to the office this morning, an eight hour shift is certainly not in the plan. The work week is over, and although the weekend has begun, there are a lot of other things that you need to take care of. But such things aren’t on your mind right now.
Instead, you’re getting ready to take your car out for an early morning drive to a favorite destination of yours; say, Cars & Coffee for example. The destination is about an hour away, and unless carburetors and exhaust notes fit the bill, you’ll surely want your favorite musician providing the soundtrack for your drive. If you had to grab or stream one album, undoubtedly your favorite for a drive, which would you choose? Please refrain from any “Best Hits” albums or compilations. As for me, the windows would be down (regardless of temperature) and The Velvet Underground’s Loaded would be cranked. Oh, and there’d surely be a huge grin on my face.
So, what is your favorite album for a weekend morning drive?
