Editorial Reviews

Ry Cooder has many influences - from the early days as part of Taj Mahal's backing group (Ryland P Cooder, Rhythm Guitar) to the global success of Buena Vista Social Club. This collection pre-dates the latter and post-dates the former. This import only collection features 19 of his best tracks from his recordings on Warner from, 1972-1994. Includes 'Paris, Texas', 'Little Sister', 'The Pearls/ Tia Juana' and more! Warner. 2003.

Format: Audio CD
I guess you acquire samplings like this to get some sort of overview. In most of the 'best ofs' I've heard & reviewed, despite the difficulty of reducing the choice of tracks from prolific artists, this has been achieved, even at the cost of 'rupturing' the contexts from which the tracks have been drawn. They manage to reweave an aesthetic tapestry. Not so with this, I feel. It's just too eclectic, a likely result of how varied the maps are that Cooder has covered. It isn't that this is a poor sampling. Just that I prefer so many of the complete originals; Boomer's Story, Paradise & Lunch, Purple Valley, and no compilation that pulls a single track from them can reflect their emotive hold.

I think this is a great CD. I love Ry Cooder, who defies definition. A great mix of some of his best stuff over a number of years.
