I'm going to add to the chorus of approval given this dinky and brill little box set and add a few more details.

Having had it a few weeks now and listened to all the discs - I estimate that most of the first 7 are REMASTERS with the remainder sounding like those CDs already issued - which sound great anyway. His huge hit album "Bop Til You Drop" from 1979 was the world's first all-digital recording and has always sounded clean if not a little flat somehow. The CD here is definitely not the "UFO Has Landed" remaster (see separate review) - but - with a judicious amount of volume - it does sound lovely anyway. Here's the breakdown of what's on offer and what's missing...

Ry Cooder - "1970 - 1987" was released Monday 11 November 2013 on Warner Brothers 8122796241 and is an 11CD mini box set with each album in 5" repro card sleeves as follows:

Disc 1 (30:13 minutes):
1. Alimony
2. France Chance
3. One Meat Ball
4. Do Re Mi
5. Old Kentucky Home
6. How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times And Live?
7. Available Space
8. Pig Meat
9. Police Dog Blues
10. Goin' To Brownsville
11. Dark Is The Night
Tracks 1 to 11 are his debut solo LP "Ry Cooder" (December 1970)

Disc 2 (37:46 minutes):
1. How Can You Keep Moving (Unless You Migrate Too)
2. Billy The Kid
3. Money Honey
4. F.D.R. In Trinidad
5. Teardrops Will Fall
6. Denomination Blues
7. On A Monday
8. Hey Porter
9. Great Dreams From Heaven
10. Taxes On The Farmer Feed Us All
11. Vigilante Man
Tracks 1 to 11 are his 2nd album "Into The Purple Valley" (February 1972)

I've listened to the first six studio recordings in this 11CD Box, 'Ry Cooder' (self titled), 'Into The Purple Valley', 'Boomer's Story', 'Paradise and Lunch' 'Chicken Skin Music' and 'Jazz' and five of them sound just as wonderfully detailed as previously released CD versions.

The self titled 'Ry Cooder' is the exception. It is just as detailed as the others but for whatever reason Warner have issued this in a different master (or mix) than was used for the original UK pressed Reprise LP and single CD edition that was issued on Reprise/Warner Archives (made in Germany).

I've no doubt the other five titles in this box will sound just as well mastered and crystal clear as these six.

There are no credits or booklet with this set.

You get all the the albums in original artwork mini cardboard sleeves (including the gate-fold 'Into The Purple Valley'), and an attractive box that lists all CDs & their tracks. There are no extra (or bonus) tracks included.

Can't figure Warner Bros. and their apparent secrecy over mastering sources, considering that information is critical for certain potential buyers who may already have some, or all, of Ry Cooder's Reprise/Warner albums, either LP or CD.

For anyone holding back on purchase, maybe due to already owning a few (or all) of these titles purchase is still worth considering. For anyone with no Ry Cooder albums in their collection this box is an absolute must.

* According to Amazon Japan the following Ry Cooder titles were remastered and released in Japan in limited edition cardboard sleeves.

No extras here, just the first 11 albums in miniature album sleeves - no book of notes. For the price, who would quibble?

If you don't know, Ry is a master of acoustic and electric guitar, slide and fretted. He is also a master mandolinist. He plays blues, Tex-Mex and many other genres of Americana. His voice is not the greatest, but he uses it to its best effect. He often surrounds himself with what he describes as a kind of Duke Ellington folk orchestra. The song selection is eclectic, esoteric even, so it's not for the casual listener.

If you like Americana, give it a listen. Ry is the man who rediscovered the Buena Vista Social Club musicians. Is that a good enough recommendation?

B. Arthur is a professional guitarist and guitar teacher active in Northumberland UK.

By Cornish Deadhead TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 11 Nov. 2013
Format: Audio CD
Cooder is the American musician who during his career has encompassed just about all musical genres or influences from folk and blues to Tex-Mex, soul/gospel. Here we have 11 fine albums contained in one box which between them cover all the genres, with some of his great albums included, Into The Purple Valley, (the one that got him noticed), Chicken Skin Music & Bop Till You Drop, but you might have your own personal ones.

There are plenty of reviews of the various albums so I see little point in labouring over them, other than to say this is the opportunity to get a library of a legendary musician at a bargain price (shop around as I got mine for under £24!!). The other real plus for me is the packaging as each album is in a replica LP cardboard slipcase with the selection in a neat cardboard box (no horrible plastic boxes) and on your shelf the 11 album box is only a little wider that 3 standard jewel cases. So if storage is a problem and I can assure you it is for me, or perhaps I should say my wife, you can sleep easy.

(A little background on Ry Cooder for those that don't know - he played around the West Coast a lot including with Ed Cassidy (later of Spirit), Capt Beefheart (Safe As Milk), and did a fair amount of session work including with the Stones, so quite a pedigree)

I just love these boxes that are being issued these days containing so many replica albums, and this one I reckon is a must buy.
