Ry Cooder / Ry Cooder
WB/Reprise Records RS-6402 (1970RE)(US) Standard reissue Record on U.S. vinyl. Already a seasoned music business veteran at the age of 22,
Ry Cooder stepped out from behind the shadows of Jackie DeShannon, Taj Mahal, the Rolling Stones, and Captain Beefheart, signing his own deal
with Warner Brothers. His self-titled debut creates an intriguing fusion of blues, folk, rock & roll, and pop, filtered through his own
intricate, syncopated guitar. The Record and Cover (with shrinkwrap) are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$10.00


Ry Cooder / Ry Cooder (Import)
WB/Reprise Records K-44093 (1970RE)(UK) Import reissue Record on U.K. vinyl. Already a seasoned music business veteran at the age of 22,
Ry Cooder stepped out from behind the shadows of Jackie DeShannon, Taj Mahal, the Rolling Stones, and Captain Beefheart, signing his own deal
with Warner Brothers. His self-titled debut creates an intriguing fusion of blues, folk, rock & roll, and pop, filtered through his own
intricate, syncopated guitar. The Record and Cover (with writing on back cover) are in great (Very Good++ to Mint-) condition...$15.00

Ry Cooder Into The Purple Valley lp
Ry Cooder / Into The Purple Valley
WB/Reprise Records MS-2052 (1971)(US) Original issue Record on U.S. vinyl. 'Phenomenal' describes his playing, whether it is on guitar,
Hawaiian "slack key" guitar, mandolin, or the more arcane instruments he has found. This is a must for those who love instrumental virtuosity,
authentic reworkings of an era, or just good music. The Record and Gatefold Cover (minor bent corner) are in great (Very Good++) condition...$12.00


Ry Cooder / Into The Purple Valley (RE)
WB/Reprise Records MS-2052 (1971RE)(US) Standard reissue Record on U.S. vinyl. 'Phenomenal' describes his playing, whether it is on guitar,
Hawaiian "slack key" guitar, mandolin, or the more arcane instruments he has found. This is a must for those who love instrumental virtuosity,
authentic reworkings of an era, or just good music. The Record and Gatefold Cover are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$15.00



Ry Cooder / Boomer's Story (Sold Out)
WB/Reprise Records MS-2117 (1972)(US) Original issue Record on U.S. vinyl. Thanks to albums like this, along with Cooder's consistently
strong choice of material and brilliant guitar work, "Boomer's Story" ranks among his best work (it's not as unconventional as his first,
and less eclectic than "Into the Purple Valley"). The Record and Cover are in great (Very Good++) condition...$15.00 (SOLD 12/10)

Ry Cooder / Paradise and Lunch
WB/Reprise Records MS-2179 (1974)(US) Standard reissue Record on U.S. vinyl. Like his three previous records, this one is filled with
treasures which become part of a world where eras and styles converge without ever sounding forced or contrived. "Paradise and Lunch"
remains Ry Cooder's masterpiece. The Record and Cover are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$15.00

Ry Cooder Boomer's Story lp         Ry Cooder Paradise and Lunch lp         Ry Cooder Chicken Skin Music lp

Ry Cooder / Chicken Skin Music
WB/Reprise Records MS-2254 (1976)(US) Standard issue Record on U.S. vinyl. "Chicken Skin Music" is probably Ry Cooder's most eccentric
record since his first, but it's also one of his most entertaining. If Cooder's approach to the music is stylistically diverse, his choice
of material certainly follows suit. The Record and Cover are in great (Very Good++ to Mint-) condition...$15.00



Ry Cooder / Jazz
WB/Reprise Records BSK-3197 (1978)(US) Standard issue Record on U.S. vinyl. "Jazz" is, at the very least, educational. Here Ry Cooder pays
homage to some of the early tunes and masters of jazz, ranging from the late 1800s through the "coon songs" of the early part of the next
century, to the ragtime and "Spanish" music of Jelly Roll Morton. The Record and Cover are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$15.00

Ry Cooder / Jazz (Import)
Warner Bros. Records K-56488 (1978)(UK) Import Record on U.K. vinyl. "Jazz" is, at the very least, educational. Here Ry Cooder pays
homage to some of the early tunes and masters of jazz, ranging from the late 1800s through the "coon songs" of the early part of the next
century, to the ragtime and "Spanish" music of Jelly Roll Morton. The Record and Cover are in great (Very Good++) condition...$15.00

Ry Cooder Bop Till You Drop lp
Ry Cooder / Bop Till You Drop (Promo)
WB/Reprise Records BSK-3358 (1979)(US) Promotional issue Record on U.S. vinyl. The first major-label, digitally recorded album,
"Bop Till You Drop" is a nice set of moderately known to obscure tunes from the R&B/soul-based '50s and '60s. A worthwhile listen given
Ry Cooder's fondness for choosing great tunes, as well as the tight performances, brilliant guitar work, and a handful of great guest
vocalists. The Record and Cover (with promo stamp on back) are in great (Very Good++) condition...$10.00

Ry Cooder / Bop Till You Drop (Import)
Warner Bros.Records K-56691 (1979)(UK) Import Record on U.K. vinyl. The first major-label, digitally recorded album, "Bop Till You Drop"
is a nice set of moderately known to obscure tunes from the R&B/soul-based '50s and '60s. A worthwhile listen given Ry Cooder's fondness
for choosing great tunes, as well as the tight performances, brilliant guitar work, and a handful of great guest vocalists.
The Record and Cover (writing on back) are in great (Very Good++) condition...$15.00



Ry Cooder / Borderline (Sold Out)
WB/Reprise Records BSK-3489 (1980)(US) Standard issue Record on U.S. vinyl. With "Borderline", Ry Cooder followed the foray into R&B and
soul of his previous effort, "Bop Till You Drop", but this time out with a little shot of the Southwest thrown in. It may not have the
singular personality of his best '70s work, but it's a solid outing nonetheless.
The Record and Cover (with shrinkwrap) are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$10.00 (SOLD 09/15)


Ry Cooder / Borderline (Import)
Warner Bros. Records K-56864 (1980)(UK) Import Record on U.K. vinyl. With "Borderline", Ry Cooder followed the foray into R&B and
soul of his previous effort, "Bop Till You Drop", but this time out with a little shot of the Southwest thrown in. It may not have the
singular personality of his best '70s work, but it's a solid outing nonetheless.
The Record and Cover are in great (Very Good++ to Mint-) condition...$15.00

Ry Cooder Borderline lp
                               
Ry Cooder the Long Riders Soundtrack lp
Ry Cooder / The Long Riders (Original Soundtrack)(Sealed)
WB/Reprise Records HS-3448 (1980)(US) Sealed Soundtrack Record. Ry Cooder was in fine form with this score, using original material,
unusual and anachronistic instruments (saz, tamboura, electric guitar), and elements of traditional songs from the Civil War period.
As a result, the album can be appreciated as a unique entity, away from the film.
The Record and Cover are in excellent (Mint) condition...$20.00
Also available is a standard issue version in great (Very Good++ to Mint-) condition...$10.00



Ry Cooder / The Border (Original Soundtrack)(Promo)
MCA/Backstreet Records BSR-6105 (1982)(US) Promotional issue Soundtrack Record. Ry Cooder tackles another great movie soundtrack again.
"Across The Borderline" features Freddy Fender on lead vocals and the rest of this release includes the usual who's who of studio musicians.
The Record and Cover (with Promo stamp on front) are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$12.00

Ry Cooder The Border Soundtrack lp
                               
Ry Cooder The Slide Area lp
Ry Cooder / The Slide Area (Import)
Warner Bros. Records K-56976 (1982)(UK) Import Record on U.K. vinyl. The two gems on this are the phenomenal treatments of both "Blue Suede
Shoes" and Bob Dylan's "I Need a Woman." Both contain some memorable slide guitar work, but isn't that what we expect from this master of
the guitar family. The album is very good but those two songs make it a quite memorable.
The Record and Cover are in great (Very Good++) condition...$12.00



Ry Cooder / Music From the Motion Picture Alamo Bay (12")(Promo)
WB/Slash Records PRO-A-2312 (1985)(US) Promotional 12" Record. This single, "The Last Stand" is from the Original Soundtrack to the
motion picture "Alamo Bay". The Record and Cover are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$10.00



Ry Cooder / Blue City (Original Soundtrack)
Warner Bros. Records 25386 (1986)(US) Original Soundtrack Record. The music is typically well done for "Blue City" and as usual,
great musicians accompany Ry Cooder. The Record and Cover (promo cut on bottom left seam) are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$10.00

Ry Cooder / Crossroads (Original Soundtrack)
Warner Bros. Records 25399 (1986)(US) Original Soundtrack Record. The false blues story of the film gives Ry Cooder leeway to turn in
an impressive blues-derived soundtrack featuring Sonny Terry along with his usual collaborators Van Dyke Parks, Jim Keltner, Nathan East,
and others. But it's Ry Cooder's guitar playing that highlights the album.
The Record and Cover (with shrinkwrap) are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$12.00

Ry Cooder Blue City Soundtrack lp         Ry Cooder Crossroads Soundtrack lp         Ry Cooder Get Rhythm lp

Ry Cooder / Get Rhythm (Promo)
WB/Reprise Records 25639 (1987)(US) Promotional issue Record on U.S. vinyl. It seems musicians line up to play with him, and they feel he did
them a favor by letting them play on his albums. He always gives them plenty of space to do what they do. The theme for these nine cuts is
rhythm of all different types. The Record and Cover (with promo stamp on front) are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$10.00



Ry Cooder (with Robin Williams) / Pecos Bill (Promo)
Windham Hill/Rabbit Ears Records WH-0709 (1988)(US) Promotional issue Record. Ry Cooder adds his own brilliance as arranger and chief picker
in this series of instrumental vignettes that evoke a story's larger-than-life Old West surroundings. Robin Williams brings his own manic
shape-shifting gifts as actor and comedian to a hilarous, unpredictable reading.
The Record and Cover (with promo stamp on back) are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$15.00

Ry Cooder Robin Williams Pecos Bill lp

                               
Ry Cooder Paris Texas Soundtrack lp
Ry Cooder / Paris Texas (Original Soundtrack)
Warner Bros. Records 25270 (1989)(US) Original Soundtrack Record. The majority of the score is delicate and stunningly pretty. The overall
sense is that Cooder was reaching for spare, emotional movements. The score is stark, quiet, and as uplifting as it is sad. Ry Cooder makes the
music sound as modern and stylish as acoustic music can. The Record and Cover (with shrinkwrap) are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$12.00



Ry Cooder / Johnny Handsome (Original Soundtrack)
Warner Bros. Records 25996 (1989)(US) Original Soundtrack Record. Small-time crook Mickey Rourke is mockingly named "Johnny Handsome"
because of his grotesquely deformed face. Ry Cooder brings out another great soundtrack as usual with the customary back-up musicians.
The Record and Cover (with Promo stamp on front) are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$12.00

Ry Cooder Johnny Handsome Soundtrack lp

                               
Ry Cooder Ali Farka Toure Talking Timbuktu lp
Ry Cooder (with Ali Farka Toure) / Talking Timbuktu (Import) (Sold Out)
World Circuit Records K-56976 (1994)(UK) Rare Import Record on U.K. vinyl. Guitarist Ali Farka Toure has repeatedly bridged the gap between
traditional African and contemporary American vernacular music, and this release continues that tradition with longtime roots music great
Ry Cooder (who doubled as producer), and venerable guitarist Gatemouth Brown. This release was made with Direct Metal Mastering.
The Record and Cover are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$40.00 (SOLD 01/08)
