A very tempting collection of all the seven soundtracks albums issued on, or through, Warner Bros. where the music was produced (and played) by Ry Cooder.
I already had CD versions of three of these soundtracks and rated them all very highly so the question for me was is this box worth buying for the four soundtracks I did not have and had not heard.
Based on one listen I'm certain the answer is most certainly yes!
I can't imagine anyone who likes Ry Cooder being disappointed with any of the easier to find albums here like 'The Long Riders', 'Paris, Texas', and 'Crossroads'. The versions in the box either equal or (in the case of 'The Long Riders') sound even better than the original CD editions. The cardboard sleeves are all very neat too. 'Paris, Texas' has a different sleeve than the one I am familiar with.
'Alamo Bay' was originally issued on Slash Records (1985) and was one title that I have always wanted to get hold of. It has, as a stand-alone album, been out of print for years, so I was well pleased to find it included in this box. This soundtrack has a varied mix of different musical styles, and all have their own special attractions. Although I have only heard it once I like what I am hearing.
'Blue City' (1986) is another album with a varied mix of musical styles. It opens with a rocker, followed by a slow groove instrumental that features some lovely steel drum sounds. I don't think Ry Cooder plays on the third track, a pop song performed by a band called True Believers. The record also includes a Ry Cooder version of the 1958 Johnny Cash song 'Don't Take Your Guns To Town'.Read more ›
My advice is to read Jackie P's review and then snap this box up. It's a gem.
