I spent the big bucks to see Mister Cooder. Well worth the $3.50
Now, this is a much more enjoyable thread than the DLRoth vs STyler foolishness.

Don't forget to check out the album Memphis in the Meantime by John Hiatt, great album with Ry on lead git.
Easily in my top 10 favorite albums, ever. Straightforward, heartfelt music from John and a killer band.
Channeling a little Blind Arthur Blake on the Ry Cooder album released in 1970.
There's a name which was overdue to hear about!
Loved the Ali farka toure and the social club!
Great great albums!
I didn’t know how much I needed to see Ry last summer until I saw him. Did not disappoint. The breadth of his work knocks me out.
Got to see him on his solo tour last year. Incredible. Going to see him with Roseanne Cash in Boston (2 extra tickets if anyone wants them) doing a show of Johnny's tunes.
Not one of Johnny's, but I love his take on this classic, especially the intro
Funnily enough I just bought Boomer's Story again a few weeks ago. Wonderful music
I've always thought this was the funkiest, most understated rhythm ever. Could listen to it all day on a loop.
Side note......every time I buy the next ‘odd’ thing, it seems that Ry Cooder has been using it for decades!! I bought an Oahu Diana lap steel for which I had to have the pickup rewound...and...yes, Roy Cooder uses that lap pickup in one of his guitars. I bought a Japanese Guyatone LB-50 with a ‘Feather’ housebrand logo on it....Cooder uses the neck pickup of that guitar in the neck position of that sonic blue Strat. My sister found a Premier Super 88 amp in a shed of her husband’s grandparent’s estate farm....and Cooder uses a Md. 88!! If all goes well, that amp will produce sound today for the first time in many years. I want to play Link Wray’s “Rumble” through the same circuit he did.
I like everything I have ever heard him do, and it seems that I am busy running across equipment that he finds elemental to his sound. Maybe that is because he has been busy for decades finding equipment that is not sitting in shiny music stores????.
Well, I played “Rumble” on the Super 88 today. For sure...using only the highest freq tone paddle yielded exactly the sound. Versatile amp....I’ll start a thread on it in the near future.
Little Village, with Ry, Hiatt, Nick Lowe, and Jim Keltner - maybe the best live band of all time!
