This could be a very nice journey!
Cooder can fairly claim to be the living guardian of dust-bowl Americana. This is a finely crafted album which takes us back to Cooder's acoustic roots. There is an authentic feel to the tracks with some very fine playing in Cooder's instantly recognisable style - be it on guitar, bajo sexto or mandolin. On many tracks Cooder collaborates with Flaco Jiminez (acordian) and one of the best drummers around, in my humble opinion, Jim Keltner. For those who are impressed by such things, Peter and Mike Seeger add some lovely banjo flourishes.
This is a story, from start to finish. You need to listen to it carefully and read the beautifully presented notes in order to truly benefit from the experience but if you only dip in and out of it you will still admire the stylish, tasteful music. Incidentally, do NOT buy this album via iTunes - you really, really need the CD package to enjoy this experience to its full and when you hold it in your hands you'll understand why you need it.
I think Ry Cooder must be on a mission to give something back to his loyal fan base. Both this album and his previous, Chavez Ravine, appear to have been made for the pure joy of reliving history and telling a story. They have also come with extensive liner notes and beautiful packaging. And at a fair price. Kinda makes you wonder exactly why many popular CDs come with nothing and cost double, doesn't it?Read more ›
Most of his original usual stunning set of musicians assembled to accompany him on this journey. This is genuine great music in a time when it is in very short supply. Some not easy to grasp at first, but stick with it and be very entertained. Welcome back Ry. More of the same, good to have you back!!
This however is his old self teamed up with his old backing band and more importantly (in my opinion) Flaco Jimenez is old friend and terrific accordionist, it reminds of "Chicken Skin Music" and other Hank Williams inspired works.
It's like an old friend calling again after many years, thanks Ry and for god's sake do a British tour.
The thing that is great about Ry Cooder, and what makes him such a good fellow traveller, isn't his slide guitar playing, and it isn't the quality of thirty year old LPs. What makes Ry so good to know is that he takes you places. I know of no other artist who provides so much variety in what he does. If you include his various side projects over the years, a record collection that includes everything he has done would probably not need much more!
Travelling with Ry over the years has been an experience and, like travelling abroad, there have been sights and scenes that disappointed, but you wouldn't have wanted to have missed them.
So now we are on the latest episode of the Cooder journey and it doesn't disappoint. This is a great CD. The packaging is marvellous, the playing is entirely appropriate for the subject matter, and it makes such a wonderful change from 99.9% of all other albums. Ry Cooder doesn't have a great voice, but neither do Bob Dylan, Randy Newman, or John Prine, and they are far more dependent on singing than Cooder is.
So, if you're willing to go exploring, put your trust in Ry Cooder and take the plunge.
