John Bonham leaning over drum Kit

Who was the creative force behind this jumpy little world music sortie? Could it be that Robert Plant had Paul Simon’s yearnings for a broader world music horizon? Is this limiting the input of the rest of the members? Not! The story goes Jimmy Page got the idea for the Samba beat from a World Cup soccer tournament in 1978. Argentina was the host country, and Page heard a lot of samba rhythms while watching. John Bonham (rest in raucous peace) has a difficult-to-reproduce percussive role in this jumpy little Samba pack mule. What does our esteemed music critic group love most about this track? The pounding drums, Plant vocals, lyrics, bass, or Jimmy Page’s solos?  It finally comes down to the infectious Samba beat, so credit goes to the Argentinian Futbol rhythms and, of course, the Bonzo execution!

Echo for your Car

Add Alexa to your car – Connects to the Alexa app on your phone and plays through your car’s speakers via auxiliary input or your smartphone’s Bluetooth connection. Includes Vent Mount.


Designed for the road: Echo Auto can hear you over music, A/C, and road noise with eight microphones and far-field technology. Echo Auto is privacy enabled. You can press the microphone off button to electronically disconnect the microphones.


Go beyond radio – Voice control Echo Auto through the Alexa app to play Audible audiobooks, listen to podcasts, or stream Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, SiriusXM, or radio stations from around the world with TuneIn and iHeartRadio.


Just ask – Use your voice to play music, check the news, find the nearest gas station, and more.

Do more with your voice: Make calls, set reminders, add items to your shopping and to-do lists, or manage your calendar.

Alexa has skills – With tens of thousands of skills and counting, Alexa is always getting smarter.

Set location-based routines: Alexa can automatically start a series of actions when you leave the office or get home.

Ask for directions: Alexa can start navigation on your phone with supported apps like Waze, Google Maps, and Apple Maps.

We want you to know

Echo Auto connects to Alexa through the Alexa app on your phone and uses your existing smartphone data plan. Carrier charges may apply. Check if your vehicle’s air vents are compatible with the included mount.

Will this connect to my car?

Echo Auto connects to most cars that support Bluetooth to play music or have an auxiliary input. Check if your vehicle is compatible with Echo Auto via Bluetooth.

I was given a beta test tryout of Alexa Auto last year and utilized it on several long car trips. My 2013 Honda does not connect directly via Bluetooth to the Echo Auto; instead, we secure the echo with a cable through the auxiliary portal. My smartphone is the Bluetooth connection conduit for Alexa and my Bluetooth port, adding data usage on long car trips. One important caveat: Best to utilize a home wireless network during the initial setup steps. This initial setup at home will save you countless hours/headaches when remotely establishing the initial setup. The initial setup process is quick and easy with following instructions via your automobile Bluetooth system. My recommendation applies to the very first time you set up Alexa auto in your car.
