AllMusic Review by

This brief set isn't quite what you'd expect with a title like Hot Rod Cruisin' Classics, and on top of that, several of these tracks are stereo re-recordings and not the original versions. Most of these songs hail from the mid-'60s, which leaves Canned Heat's later-in-the-decade "On the Road Again" sticking out like a deer in headlights, and one hopes folks are cruisin' to "Tequila" rather than ingesting it behind the wheel. Chuck Berry's "No Particular Place to Go" kind of sums it up here.
