Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Ry Cooder

My Name is Buddy

2007-03-23

Ry Cooder’s parable of “radical imagination.” The album details the life, rambles and education of “Buddy Red Cat.” Cooder brings guests to the table like Mike Seeger, his brother Pete, Roland White, Van Dyke Parks, Paddy Moloney, Flaco Jiminez, Sefon Harris, Joachim Cooder, and others. Each of 17 songs, most originals, are accompanied with a drawing from Vincent Valdez and a story/vignette written by Ry Cooder.
