Surprisingly, this is only Ry Cooder’s second live album – the first was in 1977. The set dips into his recent albums of social history but most of the songs are covers from his discography: Woody Guthrie’s ‘Do Re Mi’ with Flaco Jiménez on accordion; ‘Wooly Bully’, an exquisite ‘Dark End Of The Street’, and a closing singalong on Leadbelly’s ‘Goodnight Irene’.
