Down At The Field - Ry Cooder

 A very, very good album

Stunning songs of protest from American guitar legend Ry Cooder ...... The lyrics are bitingly satirical - "with champagne and shrimp cocktails/and that's not all you find/there's a billion dollar bonus/and no banker left behind"  .... “These times call for a very different kind of protest song. ‘Where Have All the Flowers Gone?’ We’re way down the road from that.” If protest is what you want, Cooder has delivered it magnificently.
1. Too Tight This Rag of Mine 2. You ve been Doing Something Wrong (I Can Tell By the Way You Smell) 3. Blind Man Messed Up By Tear Gas 4. Instrumental 5. How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times and Live 6. Slow Consumption 7. Forget That Folding Bridge 8. Fool for a Cigarette/Feelin Good 9. Crazy Bout an Automobile 10. Feelin Like a Submarine (Kentucky Blues) 11. Don t take everybody to be a Friend 12. The Tattler 13. One Meat Ball 14. Preacher 15. Vigilante Man from the 70's
