1963/1964 - Pamela Polland & Ry Cooder: Live at The Ash Grove, Los Angeles, CA. (various performances)
Los Angeles has always been a great hotbed for musical artists, and the music community was especially "tight knit" the 1960's. Almost everyone who played music in LA during that decade knew each other, or at least got to meet up in person at some point. The Troubadoor and The Ashgrove were two of LA's hottest nightspots, but what set The Ashgrove apart was the owner's deep commitment to only presenting authentic blues and country musicians from across the USA, and the fact that McCabe's Guitar store had set up shop just outside the entryway to The Ashgrove. McCabe's would let musicians from all walks of life, all abilities and all styles, hang out and play in the store. And this is where 17 year old Pamela Polland met 15 year old Ry Cooder in approximately 1962. Although young in years, Ry was already deeply skilled as a musician, but he was not yet ready to sing. Upon their meeting, Ry and Pamela discovered a mutual love and appreciation for the great ethnic music of the 20th century. From hanging around and jamming at McCabe's, to getting together around a 78 rpm record player and listening intently to the likes of Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, Joseph Spence, Lightin' Hopkins, Mississippi John Hurt, Reverend Gary Davis, the great Robert Johnson, gospel singers Mahalia Jackson, Dorothy Love Coates and so many, many others, Pamela and Ry began to create their own, historically respectful renditions of this material. To this day, Pamela credits Ry as her "first singing teacher" because he taught her to truly listen and pay attention to her musical influences at the time. The owner of the Ashgrove had long been committed to only presenting truly authentic ethnic musicians, but upon hearing what the two teenagers had been up to, Ed decided to break with tradition and give these two, sincere young artists a spot on the Ashgrove stage. Between 1963 and 1964, Pamela and Ry played the Ashgrove on a more than one occasion. The music you hear on this page is from one of those shows - a treasure to behold.

Review: Sly Guitar from Raitt, Cooder, Lindley at Benefit
Pop Capsules
November 17, 1989|DON WALLER
The rare pairing of sly git-tar whizzards Ry Cooder and David Lindley provided the highlights, caustic comic Bob Goldthwait provided the punch lines and red-haired bluesrocker Bonnie Raitt provided the headliner at the benefit concert for the California Environmental Protection Initiative that sold out the Santa Monica Civic on Wednesday.
Raitt (a pretty fair sly guitarist herself) and her band breezed through a solid set of old, new, borrowed and blues tunes and the "Bobcat" spewed a blue brew of today's political and pop-music stew, but it was the near-telepathic, multi-ethnic, musicological, multi-instrumental, ego-free playing of Cooder and Lindley that simply shot out the lights. Cajun, gospel, country, blues, cars, sex, humor, politricks, virtuosity. This one should have been a live album. Source: Los Angeles Times

A BENEFIT CONCERT FOR BILL WALLACE
"MAKE EVERY VOTE COUNT" Santa Barbara County.
Act One: Tom Ball & Kenny Sultan, Act two: Ry Cooder & David Lindley, intermission, Act three: Kenny Loggins.
The story:
The 3rd District Supervisor Election Saga
Bill Wallace won this election! After months of counts, recounts and manual tallies, an Election Contest trial court judge has now ruled that Bill is ahead with a few outstanding votes to be counted which could lead to a tie. In the June primary, sixteen-year incumbent Third District Supervisor Bill Wallace was challenged by one serious candidate - Willy Chamberlain - and two spoiler candidates. A November run-of became necessary. The Wallace campain structured a massive voter-registration drive in Isla Vista and on the UCSB campus and an intensive get-out-the-vote campain that, compared to the primary, more then doubled the voter turn-out in Isla Vista and UCSB to 67 percent. Bill received 77 percent of this IV/UCSB vote, wich comprise an important progressive voting bloc that is a major factor in local environmetal campains. The November election was so close that the results were not certified until December. With only a seven-vote difference between the two cadidates, Bill Wallace asked for a recount and manual tall, wich took place under intense political pressure.
Why Discrepancies In The Voter Count?
On January 5th the Elections Office announced that both candidates picked up dozens of votes during the manual tally - votes that the computers hadn't caught. But more importantly, the Elections Office added 21 new votes that we discovered had been simply misfiled or wrongly cancelled or wrongly purged. Altough the recount left Bill officially 6 votes short of victory, we knew many more voters had been simply misfiled or canceled, and these were almost all "provisional votes" from the Isla Vista area! Many Isla Vista Voters were disenfranchised by either clerical errors at the Election Offices and/or misdirection at the polls. These were the "provisional votes" that occur when people show up at the polls and poll workers cannot find the voters names on the roster. More than one-third of the 974 provisional ballots cast county wide were from Isla Vista and UCSB - an amazing percetage considering that IV/UCSB voters made up only 6 percent of county voters. Over 150 Third Distrct provisional votes were ultimately counted before the court Contest ever began. During the recount and the trial we presented over 100 provisional votes, from people who followed the guidance of elections officials when their names weren't found at the polls. In court we showed how each voter had done everything they reasonable could to vote, yet the court allowed only 21 more provisional votes to be counted. Particularly frustrating are situations where validly registerd voters were assured their provisional votes would count, but their reliance on incorrect information from pollworkers and other officials on election day led to disenfranchisement on their votes. On Thuesday, March 16th, the judge announced that Bill Wallace is leading by two votes; the court also credited the Chamberlin side with showing votes in the original (November) count that ought to be uncounted. Yet the Chamberlain attorneys did not present enough evidence to show how four of these voters voted, and thus they cannot be substracted from either sides tally. This means some formula may be devised to split these ballots; the judge could allow an apportionment formula which, on such a small sampling, could lead to a new costly election. Or the judge could let stand his decision that Bill Wallace had the majority of votes and should be re-seated.
We Won THis Election!
We cannot give up now. This round will not be the last. Within the next 14 days the judge will issue a final ruling which eather cast a new election in the Third District (taking the seat away from Willy Chamberlain) or award the seat straight out to Bill Wallace. There will be continued court challenges of the judge's decisions. With your continued help and support we will hold and win this battle.

John Hiatt about the making of "Thing Called Love" from the album Bring The Family: Q: "Did the band you recorded it with -- guitarist Ry Cooder, bassist Nick Lowe and drummer Jim Keltner -- help shape the song itself?"
A: "I had everything when we went to record it, but Nick Lowe came up with that riff -- ba dir di dir dit -- which is the icing on the cake. As soon as he started playing that on the bass, Ry started playing it on the guitar, and he was laughing, "Oh, that's great." And that was pretty much the arrangement".

STEVE DOUGLAS TRIBUTE 1993
Great American Music Hall, San Francisco, CA. 5-3-93 (Thank you Jon, who was there, for the review and information)
This show was announced about a week and a half after Steve Douglas died in a recording studio with Ry Cooder and other musicians present. It was organized by Joel Selvin (a longtime music writer/reviewer for the SF Chronicle) as a public memorial and family gathering. Douglas' widow said a few nice words.
Ry, Booker T., Hal Blaine and a few other great musicians performed as "house band" and played several songs that really missed the great sax player. (His horn stood at center stage unplayed.) A whole bunch of sax players started and ended the show with the theme from "Peter Gunn" (with Mickey Hart and others on percussion for the finale).
Comment:
- Not in my collection folks, sorry! Is there someone with this show who want to trade? -

Manuel Galban: Music Is My Life

Manuel Galban talks about the making of "Mambo Sinuendo" and working with Ry Cooder.

MG: Firstly I was a bit nervous of playing with Ry, but little by little I felt more confident. We have different techniques and styles, but we fit very well together, both in the musical and personal sphere. We chose the repertoire together and learned from each other; I have learned from him and he learned from me, especially the Cuban rhythm. I think that music in general has different styles of interpretation, but it has the same origin.

Manuel Galban: Guitarist whose work with Ry Cooder brought him fame beyond his native Cuba
However, after Ry Cooder heard the dazzling accompaniments Manuel Galbán had made during the 1960s with the vocal quartet Los Zafiros, he decided to seek him out. As a result, Galbán played extensively on Ibrahim Ferrer's 1999 debut solo album for World Circuit – as documented in Wim Wenders' film Buena Vista Social Club – which included new arrangements of two songs from the Los Zafiros repertoire. The album won a Latin Grammy.

The studio chemistry that the two guitar maestros discovered during this period led to Cooder and Galbán recording the Grammy-winning instrumental album Mambo Sinuendo (2001) and Galbán contributing to many albums by Buena Vista Social Club members, including Omara Portuondo, Orlando "Cachaíto" Lopez and Manuel "Guajiro" Mirabal. For much of the following decade, Galbán's proud and meticulous but modest presence was once again a prominent fixture on the international stage, first as a member of Ferrer's touring band and later with Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club.

The Popdose Interview: Joachim Cooder
by Mojo Flucke, date: Thursday, January 1st, 2009

Joachim Cooder produced his dad Ry’s new retrospective double disc "The UFO Has Landed"; he got to make the ultimate mixtape by picking which cuts would represent the elder Cooder’s four decades’ worth of recorded output. Popdose bent the 30-year-old drummer’s ear and discussed what it was like hanging out with a working musician for a dad who built a reputation as a musical scholar, gifted movie soundtrack composer, and all-around fan of American roots sounds.

BUILDING UP MY RY COODER LIVE COLLECTION - THE STORY
Collecting Ry Cooder "Live Recordings" started somewhere in the late 70's. In that era you went to the theatre box-offices for the pre- ticket sale, or the post-office, to get your Ry Cooder or other artists tickets. You get up early in the morning, 05.00 am, made some coffee, sandwiches and you traveled to the theatre or post-office. I was there around 06.30 am. Often the first one at the door. Most of the times the pre-ticket sale started at 10.00 am, so waiting patiently. I always tried to get tickets for row one, centre, that was the goal. I wanted to watch how Ry played, his technique. I wanted to feel the music, experience it, the emotions, the ohhhhs, the ahhhhh's. I don't give a damn if his hair is purple, grey, green or whatever: "It's Ry's music that counts! The emotion it brings up in me!"
If Ry played at different places, friends where there to get tickets, so we could see Ry Cooder 2 or 3 times. After the shows we discussed the setlist, the technique and other stuff.
Most of the times there where other Ry Cooder adepts get up so early. The die-hards, the real fans. You shared your coffee, something to smoke (high), a sandwich and the stories. "Do you know this show, do you have that in your collection, can we trade, where you there?" I still have some good friends from back then. We have one thing in common: "We share the Ry Cooder appreciation (also David Lindley, John Hiatt, Bonnie Raitt and many, many others)". At first you build up a local network of collectors. Later came the international contacts. Realise that there was no internet!!! It was all networking and meeting people at those ticket pre-sale moments or at the shows. They came from the UK, Germany, France, Belgium, USA, Japan, Austria, Australia, Italy. Almost everybody I met (the die-hard fans) where collecting and trading "live" cassette-tapes. I never payed any money for the live recordings. The only exceptions are the Ashgrove Recordings. I bought them from Wolfgangs Vault and downloaded the shows. The traders code is simple: "If you have something for me, I got something for you!".
I never recorded any of the stuff myself at the venues. I'm not a taper. I recorded live shows from the Dutch-, German-, Belgium- and UK radio and televison if the show was broadcasted. You started to know people and the trading channels. Everything was send by mail or when you met the guys.
I miss these great collective fan moments. Today, with internet, you order your tickets and you print the voucher after you payed. That's it.

Ok, the internet for me as a collector is a valuable source. Fans from all over the world approach you for a trade, a request, questions. The trade rules are the same as back then: "If you have something for me, I got something for you! And.... NEVER FOR SALE!!!!!". As simple as that!
