Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Just in time for the 2012 presidential contest, Ry Cooder drops Election Special, the follow-up to the topical and thematic Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down. Like virtually all of his records in the 21st century, Cooder's album is full of folk, blues, and roots songs that are unapologetically political in nature. He plays everything but drums, and wrote or co-wrote the tunes. Rather than use metaphors, Cooder takes direct -- often humorous -- aim at the objects of ire this time out: Super PACS, multi billionaire conservative activist brothers Charles and David Koch, and candidate Mitt Romney -- also a billionaire.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.76) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "ELECTION SPECIAL is protest music delivered with a patriot's gifts -- the American-roots beauty and expert fire in Ry Cooder's playing -- and long memory."

Billboard (p.24) - "Musically, Cooder keeps things lo-fi and DIY....Cooder remains a consummate blues player and blues tunes dominate..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.87) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "ELECTION SPECIAL seizes its moment and the soapbox....Ry exuberantly dusts his broom, mixes his licks and shouts news across an old-school 39-minutes of album time..."
