Has Ry Cooder ever put out a duff record? I expect not. He has served with Captain Beefheart and he hipped Keith Richards to the open tuning that has been his trademark since 'Let It Bleed'. His work with Buena Vista Social Club and Ali Farka Touré are also landmarks. On his new record, he sings the old time depression blues but locates it in the severe present. The outlaw Jesse James considers the behaviour of the financial sector and his simple mind is blown.
