    Not a big Ry Cooder fan but I do like Crossroads and Blue City.

    I have Crossroads on DVD. Awesome music!
    Curious about the rest. *will buy*

    Too bad there’s no Streets of Fire soundtrack.

  4. Steve Benson says:

    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.

    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.
