Product Description & Reviews

Ry's instrumental virtuosity, versatility and his ability to transcend genre have made him one of the most in-demand soundtrack composers over the last two decades of American cinema, and this 2-CD set collects the best of his unfailingly evocative film scores. Includes excerpts from Paris, Texas; Alamo Bay; The Long Riders; Geronimo; Crossroads; The Border; Blue City; Johnny Handsome; Trespass , and more, plus the first release of material from Southern Comfort and Streets of Fire . Notes, too! Ostensibly a collection of Cooder's film music, the two-CD Music by Ry Cooder delivers the cinematic quality of a good soundtrack album but packs the kind of ferocious jams--featuring crack players such as John Hiatt, Jim Keltner, David Lindley, and Jim Dickinson--that you'll never hear on a John Williams score. Cooder's melancholy acoustic and electric-slide moans are a constant, though the material shifts from the plaintive piano tune "I Like Your Eyes" (from Johnny Handsome) to the border-town ballad "Across the Borderline" (featuring Freddy Fender) to the grit-and-spit stomp of "Bomber Bash" (from Streets of Fire). From cowboy serenades to contemporary exotica, from Paris, Texas to Alamo Bay, Cooder's soundtrack legacy is a strangely unified cross section of an American master's finest and most varied work. --James Rotondi
