Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Ry Cooder, John Hiatt (vocals, guitars); Jim Dickinson (piano, organ); Kazu Matsui (bamboo flute); William D. Smith (keyboards); Tim Drummond, Reggie McBride (bass); Jim Keltner (drums); Ras Baboo Pierre (percussion); Bobby King, Willie Greene, Herman Johnson, George McFadden (background vocals).
  • This CD opens with an outrageous and exceedingly funky "UFO Has Landed in the Ghetto," and which seems so out of place with the other material. Yes, it is a rhythm & blues, bordering at times on funk album, and rap is one direction R&B took, but.... Listen to the groove on "Which Came First," and try to keep your body from bobbing to the strong rhythm laid down by Jim Keltner, Tim Drummond, and the background vocalists. While we are on the subject of vocals, this is one of Ry Cooder's best efforts, and his backup vocalists are key here and deserve special recognition: Bobby King, John Hiatt, Willie Greene, and Herman Johnson for most of the CD. The two gems on this are the phenomenal treatments of both "Blue Suede Shoes" and Bob Dylan's "I Need a Woman." Two songs as different in the original forms as pigs and gerbils are converted to R&B hit status. Both contain some memorable slide guitar work, but isn't that what we expect from this master of the guitar family. The album is very good but those two songs make it a gem. ~ Bob Gottlieb
