    I read some reviews yesterday. It's good to see Ry back. RIP Terry Evans. He and Bobby King were so great on past albums. I like the part where his wife Suzy told him to tone down the political stuff. One thing I cannot stand is a sanctimonious, preachy musician. Gospel seem like a very good choice here for RY. I wish I had caught him on tour with Ricky Skaggs and company. Keep on truckin', Ry.

    Actually it was Ry's son Joachim that told him to tone down the political stuff....it is a WONDERFUL album, since it's arrival here on Friday I've lost count how many times I've played it, I admit to owning 27 Ry Cooder cd's, and this is among his very best. At 70, he's singing better than ever, and what can possibly be said about his guitar playing that hasn't been said many many times.....he just get's better with time....whether your a long time Ry fan or somebody wondering what all the fuss is about, this is as good a place to start as any......just one old man's opinion....I saw him with Ricky Skaggs twice and can't wait to see him this summer....he's one of the best ever....

    Been diggin' The Prodigal Son album for a few days. Thought I'd leave a few live in the studio videos here from off the record.

    @Deeve posted about this on May 3. A great album and "Prodigal Son" is a great rendition of an old song.

    I just snagged tickets for the Santa Cruz show in August wahoo! Last CD I listened to was "I, Flathead". My son's middle name is "Ryland".
