  • Guitarist/singer Ry Cooder is one of the original Americana/roots-rockers, and has been exploring the nooks and crannies of American music since the 1960s. I, FLATHEAD finds Cooder delving into blues, country, jazz, Western swing, and more. On some tracks, Cooder pays specific tribute to his musical heroes, name-checking pedal steel guitar legend Speedy West on "Steel Guitar Heaven," and serving up tunes named for Johnny Cash and Western swing sultan Spade Cooley. However traditional the setting, though, Cooder's raw, Captain Beefheart-like voice (he appeared on the Captain's first LP, SAFE AS MILK) keeps things agreeably quirky throughout the album.
Professional Reviews
Dirty Linen (p.86) - "A guest appearance by Mexican accordionist Flaco Jimenez on 'Filipino Dance Hall Girl' adds to the CD's Tex-Mex sound."

Q (Magazine) (p.135) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[An] affectionate, note-perfect foray into a bygone musical world, this time involving western swing, mariachi brass and hillbilly boogie."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.110) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The overall sound is fittingly basic and features, the odd mariachi or Pacific island diversion aside, Cooder on guitar, steel guitar, bass and mandolin."
