Ry Cooder: Bop Till You Drop (Warner Bros.)*****

Peter Silverton, Sounds, 21 July 1979

THERE'S PROBABLY a whole bunch of enormous ironies knocking around this world but right now I can't think of a bigger or more slap-happy one than the legend emblazoned across the cover of this, the latest in the line of Ry Cooder's archaelogical digs. In total, it reads: 'Rock's first all-digital recording'.

Total word count of piece: 709
