This latest offering from Ry Cooder sees him returning to his musical roots.

After his intrepid global explorations (with special focus on Mexican and Cuban music), Ry Cooder finally returns to his own indigenous American musical roots with a set of country, blues, gospel and old-time music that recalls his early-seventies work on albums such as Boomer’s Story and Into The Purple Valley.

The main difference is that where those releases consisted mostly of covers, here we get a set of brand new Cooder compositions chronicling the ”life, rambles, and political education” of a character called Buddy Red Cat. It’s a peerless hymn to a fast-disappearing vernacular heritage by a master craftsman of the old school.

This is a mostly acoustic mix of banjos, accordions, harmonicas and guitars. And vocals, of course: while Ry Cooder’s voice certainly isn’t pretty, it boasts a rich and characterful patina impressively imbued with wisdom and experience.
