The Directeur Sportif Playlist
John Herety, Directeur Sportif of the Rapha Condor team, is a big music lover and so I asked him to send me a list of some of the tunes he will be listening to in the team car at this year’s Tour of Britain. The nature of the Tour of Britain means long transfers to and from stages, so a good soundtrack is vital. Here is the Director Sportif playlist (tank top optional).
John says: “There’s a big Americana feel to the selection, quite simply because I like it and if I’m spending that amount of time driving, it’s going to be what I want to hear.”
1. The Band – The Weight
2. Ryan Adams – Carolina Rain
3. The Felice Brothers – Frankie's Gun
4. Robbie Robertson – Soap Box Preacher
5. Slaid Cleaves – Cry
6. Creedence Clearwater Revival – Up Around The Bend
7. Conor Oberst – Eagle on a Pole
8. Fleet Foxes – Blue Ridge Mountains
9. Ryan Adams – New York, New York
10. John Mellencamp – Hurts So Good
11. Ryan Adams – Two Hearts
12. Lucinda Williams – Car Wheels On A Gravel Road
13. Drive by Truckers – Feb 14
14. The Soggy Bottom Boys – I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow
15. Little Walter – My Babe
16. Gillian Welch – Elvis Presley Blues
17. Uncle Tupelo – Orange Blossom Special
18. Elvis Presley – Baby Lets Play House
