John Boy & Billy host one of the most popular morning radio shows in the South, so it makes sense that their shtick would be spun off into a series of albums -- or, in the case of John Boy & Billy's Rockin' Race Tracks, a collection of rockin' hits heard on their racin' show. In actuality, there isn't much to separate John Boy & Billy's Rockin' Race Tracks from most album-rock oriented collections, apart from a slight (and appropriate) penchant for Southern rock. It is predictable, but it's also a good time, thanks to such staples as "Mississippi Queen," "Low Rider," "Sweet Home Alabama," "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet," "Ramblin' Man," "Touch of Grey," "Slow Ride," and "American Woman." It's nothing special, but it's a good solid classic rock collection.
