Ry Cooder - I, Flathead

Genre: rock

This Nonesuch CD, originally released in 2008, features Cooder spinning an epic yarn of a semi-fictitious America between the mid-’50s and the mid-’60s and completes the musical journey started with Chavez Revine and My Name is Buddy. This record is chock full of tasty percussion licks, environmental sounds and twangy guitar riffs. Those who loved the Little Village collaboration with John Hiatt, Nick Lowe and Jim Keltner will notice some familiar charts here…and Keltner is back on drums.The soundstage is huge, the acoustic instruments sound right and Cooder’s playing (and clever sense of humour) have never been better. The disc illustrates just how good 16/44.1 can be if done right.
