Ry Cooder’s Election Special: We have to hurry up and be smart

Friend brought by Ry Cooder’s Election Special album.  Sometimes the beat is so infectious is obscures the story the lyrics are telling but heck, the mighty Ry and today’s events.  Good for everybody’s tune-box. And good to have friends you bring and sing the music.


The lead song is a cry on behalf of Romney’s mutt. Or for a Woody Guthrie-esq teaching song here is The 90s and the 9


His previous album, Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down, had the marvelous No Banker Left Behind.

Reviewed here  and here.

What’s your goal with this record?

Use your mind and think a little. Put the small screen down. We have to hurry up and be smart.
