This is probably Ry's best album.It's the first one I got , and sonically everything just seems to come together on here.It's the best tone his guitar has ever been recorded with, and I think it's got a nice overall accesible rhythm n' blues sound to it.The guitar solo on "Lets have a Ball" is probably one of my favourites ever.

My mum and dad bought me this back in'88 because the guy in the record shop said it was the best place to start.Have to agree.After that you could do a lot worse than buy "I Flathead" - his most recent one.It's really right up there too.

The guy is a legend.

It was not what I expected and I accept that I should have checked before ordering.

I` been a fan of Ry Cooder for many years . I`ve listen to and have Borderline, Bop Till You Drop, Boomers Story , I Flathead , Chicken Skin Music,Into The Purple Valley,Paradise & Lunch and The UFO Has Landed ( for the long car journeys ). For some reason i never bought Get Rhythm. Its a gem of a CD , why i hadnt listened to this is a complete mystery . Its one of his best , i love it. Highly Recommended.

I had this album on vinyl and decided to upgrade to CD now my turntable has been retired. Individually there are some excellent tracks on the album, but I always thought it never quite hung together as an album. I don't know why. There are good songs and great musicians but I've always felt the tracks are better listened to individually, almost perfect for the modern iPod mix. But, if you are a fan of the master's music it is a must for the collection. I just think he has made better

I've only got half way through this CD at the moment, so perhaps I have missed some better tracks, but to my ear he sounded off key at times, and I didn't like the balance between voice and instruments. This is one for the real die hard Cooder fans who want to complete their collections. I bought 'Bop Til You Drop' at the same time to replace my worn out vinyl, and of course loved it.

Not my favourite RC album; so where to start with The Great Man? "Bop 'til you drop" or "Borderline"? Most folks would recommend the former, I'm not so sure. Either way, do yourself a favour.
