On November 13, 2014, “Rhino” label released “Soundtracks”, seven disc box set of Ry Cooder movie music works. In his career, Ry Cooder has created 18 soundtracks.
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.
