Ry Cooder released an album earlier this year and it is already one of this year’s best. Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down sees Cooder take a more social and political approach to this record. With a great variety of styles and sounds, these songs are linked together by the problems facing people today. This great number “I Want My Crown” links up nicely to the Captain Beefheart track featured yesterday. For those who don’t know a young Ry Cooder was brought in to play guitar on Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band’s first album, Safe as Milk. For “I Want My Crown” Cooder sounds rough and gravely like Captain Beefheart was famous for. He growls and scowls his lyrics in a way that is unusual for him. Enjoy this excellent song from Cooder’s latest release.
