Ry Cooder: Soundtracks


Seven disc box set “Soundtracks” is legacy of the magnificent movie music works of one of the true music artists of our time. 67 years old Cooder has created 18 soundtracks in his career.

Part of “Rhino” press release:

…it starts with The Long Riders and continues chronologically through 1993’s Trespass, it’s not completely all inclusive of Cooder’s soundtrack work through those years. That said, however, there’s still a heck of a lot to be said for the films that are included. Between the aforementioned titles, you’ll find Cooder’s musical contributions to Paris, Texas (1985), Alamo Bay (1985), Blue City (1986, ) Crossroads (1986), and Johnny Handsome (1989). As a result, you get a collection in which Cooder can be heard working with – among others – Jim Dickinson, David Hidalgo, Jim Keltner, David Lindley, Van Dyke Parks, Cesar Rosas, Benmont Tench, and Sonny Terry. There’s no hyperbole involved in suggesting that Ry Cooder is a musical legend, and with Soundtracks, you’ll get to hear a whole other side of the legendary music he continues to make to this day.
