Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down Digital MP3 Album
Inspired by a news headline about the Wall Street bailout, Ry Cooder began work on Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down with the track “No Banker Left Behind,” an ode to the corrupt few spared from the financial crisis while most were left to fend for themselves. Uncut calls this ""one of his best albums ever ... an impassioned portrait of 21st century America and its injustices"" in which Cooder is ""remade as a modern-day Woody Guthrie, fearless and funny, for like Guthrie he nails his targets with droll humour while empathising with society's underdogs."" The BBC calls it ""essential listening.""
