Many Fantastic Colors

Without music, life woud be a mistake (Friedrich Nietzsche)

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces,
I would still plant my apple tree

Ry Cooder - Crossroads (OST)
Ryland "Ry" Peter Cooder (born 15 March 1947, in Los Angeles, California) is an American guitarist, singer, and composer.
He is known for his slide guitar work, his interest in the American roots music, and, more recently, for his collaborations with traditional musicians from many countries. Cooder was ranked number 8 on Rolling Stone's "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time."

This production of classic blues tunes remains one of my favorites today. The Karate Kid steps up to the plate but his performance is mediocore yet saleable. A great story, looking for Robert Johnson's lost tracks, a rendeveouz with the devil, a young love affair and a quest for redempetion make this film very likeable.

It is, however, the music that sets it apart. If you are a fan of R. Johnson a lover of the blues then it's a must see/listen.


Note that this album does not include the legendary "Head-Cuttin' Duel". I will publish this track later in the first "Many Fantastic Colors" Anthology.
