  • A sonic chameleon of sorts, Ry Cooder has always been on the forefront of popular music. Whether as a session musician (with the Rolling Stones, Randy Newman, and others) or a film-score composer (most notably in collaboration with director Wim Wenders), Cooder has succeeded in incorporating diverse styles of music into his personal sound. This self-titled 1970 release features Cooder in a blues-rock mode that also touches on a wide range of musical influences.
  • "Police Dog Blues" and "Dark Is the Night" are straight-up blues numbers that feature Cooder's incredible slide-guitar playing. "Pigmeat," however, finds Cooder in a different setting, exploring gritty Dixieland music. "Do Re Mi" and "My Old Kentucky Home (Turpentine & Dandelion Wine)" move in yet another direction, easing into a funky, lazy groove reminiscent of the Band's MUSIC FROM BIG PINK. On several tracks, Cooder is supported by the unique orchestral arrangements of Kirby Johnson, which add color and texture to this excellent outing.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (2/4/71, p.56) - "...Cooder is the finest, most precise bottleneck player alive today..."

Rolling Stone (9/30/71, p.42) - "...one of the most completely realized attempts at a contemporary approach to blues..."

Q (8/95, p.137) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Cooder's ability to emulate the idiosyncrasy of his pre-pop heroes without imitating them on one hand or bowdlerising them on the other may yet be his genius, if not his fortune."

Mojo (Publisher) (7/95, p.113) - "Eponymous debut finds our Ryland firmly in the grip of his mission to rediscover American folk....Guthrie's 'Do Re Mi', Blind Boy Blake's 'Police Dog Blues' and the barmy 'One Meat Ball' make for a formidable introduction."
