    Awesome work from an artists that captures the soul of America in music! I only wish a detailed liner note bocket was included to indetify the many musicians that helped Cooder create these wonerful albums. 8/10 is my rating.

    I hope this is Volume One as there are several missing: Southern Comfort; Geronimo; The Border; The End of Violence; Primary Colors. A very good selection of Ry Cooder soundtrack tracks is on the 2CD collection “Music by Ry Cooder” 1995.

      I saw this and thought “At last, the complete soundtrack to Southern Comfort is going to be made available”. No such luck.

    Too bad there’s no Streets of Fire soundtrack.
