Ry Cooder: Bop Till You Drop (Warners Import)
Charles Shaar Murray, NME, 21 July 1979
RYLAND P. Cooder is a most reliable fellow. Ever since the days when he was laying down that stinging bottleneck guitar behind the likes of Captain Beefheart and Taj Mahal and Randy Newman and for that one titanic moment on the Performance soundtrack Mick Jagger, his name has been synonymous with quality, integrity and a total absence of bullshit.
