Rhino's Double-CD The UFO Has Landed: The Ry Cooder Anthology

October 14, 2008

 Ry Cooder CD Release

Produced by Cooder's son, Joachim, the 34-song compilation offers a fresh look at Cooder's musical career, spanning 38 years--from his eponymous 1970 debut to this year's I, Flathead--and includes the previously unreleased version of "Let's Work Together." featuring accordion player Buckwheat Zydeco, drummer Jim Keltner, pianist Jim Dickinson and bassist Mike Elizondo. Along with his solo work, THE UFO HAS LANDED features selections from Cooder's film soundtracks, including the themes from Southern
Comfort and Paris, Texas.

THE UFO HAS LANDED: THE RY COODER ANTHOLOGY collects Cooder's most memorable cuts from his solo albums, including "Maria Elena," "Jesus On The Mainline," "Boomer's Story," "I Got Mine" and "Available Space." The latter, a Cooder original on his debut, got its name from the album's producer Van Dyke Parks, who saw the words on an empty billboard on the way to the studio.
