Second Cup | NPR: Ry Cooder

I was listening to NPR this morning and they had a little story on Ry Cooder's new project. Quite a departure from what he's done before, but now he revives something quite different from what he's known for.

The tale begins:
Let's Join Buddy Red Cat, Lefty Mouse, and Reverend Tom Toad as they journey through time and space in the days of labor, big bosses, farm failures, strikes, company cops, sundown towns, hobos, and trains... the America of yesteryear.
(text taken from NPR)

The CD comes with a book of stories and drawings.

Hear samples from the new CD and listen to the interview from this morning's NPR as Ry Cooder discusses about his new album ovah here.
