"I guess you acquire samplings like this to get some sort of overview. In most of the 'best ofs' I've heard & reviewed, despite the difficulty of reducing the choice of tracks from prolific artists, this has been achieved, even at the cost of 'rupturing' the contexts from which the tracks have been drawn. They manage to reweave an aesthetic tapestry. Not so with this, I feel. It's just too eclectic, a likely result of how varied the maps are that Cooder has covered. It isn't that this is a poor sampling. Just that I prefer so many of the complete originals; Boomer's Story, Paradise & Lunch, Purple Valley, and no compilation that pulls a single track from them can reflect their emotive hold."
