Ry Cooder to Release “UFO” Anthology on 10/28

Rhino says:

Two CDs, 34 Tracks, 38 Years. From Crossroads to the Buena Vista Social Club and all points in between, Ry Cooder is legendary. Rolling Stone ranks him number 8 on their 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.

The UFO Has Landed: The Ry Cooder Anthology collects Cooder’s most memorable cuts from his solo albums, including “Maria Elena,” “Jesus On The Mainline” (video above), “Boomer’s Story,” “I Got Mine” and “Available Space.” The latter, a Cooder original on his debut, got its name from the album’s producer Van Dyke Parks, who saw the words on an empty billboard on the way to the studio.
