The first solo album for six years by the enduringly influential Ry Cooder, The Prodigal Son, will be released by Fantasy Records.

Recorded in Hollywood, it was produced by Ry with his son and chief collaborator, Joachim Cooder. It's described as a musical depiction of modern America through the songs of the Pilgrim Travellers, the Stanley Brothers, Blind Willie Johnson and Cooder himself (above photo credit: Joachim Cooder).

The 11-track set features three Cooder originals, which sit along his personal selection of favorite spirituals of the last century which have great resonance in the modern world. “I do connect the political/economic dimensions with the inner life of people since people are at risk and oppressed on all sides in our world today,” says the artist.

“There’s some kind of reverence mood that takes hold when you play and sing these songs. ‘Reverence’ is a word I heard my granddaughter’s nursery school teacher use, a Kashmiri woman. She said, ‘We don’t want to teach religion, but instill reverence.’ I thought that was a good word for the feeling of this music.”

The new set further extends the deep contribution made by Cooder to modern music and culture that dates back nearly 50 years. As a singer, writer, producer, guitarist and muse, he remains a unique voice and inspiration, with a vast catalog of solo albums, collaborations, guest appearances and soundtracks. His last studio set was 2012's Election Special.

VINYL RECORDS

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!

180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP

These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectibles, commanding a higher price.

VINYL REISSUES

Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
