Retrieved 10 August Lee Herschberg has done his usual fine job with the sound. The basic tracks were probably recorded live, with overdubs for a variety of instruments Lindley is credited as playing banjo, mandolin and fiddle on one tune. While there is a minimum of studio tricks and a nice, wide stage with some depth and natural instrumental timbre, the overall sound is somewhat dry and airless, with a noticeable lack of extension at the very top.
Nonetheless this is a dynamic recording and with it's great mix of acoustic instruments, makes for good listening. With a lineup like that you would expect the sparks to fly and they do, particularly on "Skin Game"- a six minute absolute rave up that sounds like an outtake from Sticky Fingers.
Hiatt drawls lead, Cooder wraps Keith Richards around his fingers, Dickinson pounds the piano like Nicky Hopkins- the thing just ignites from the opening bar and heats up from there.
Happily, the Glyn Johns-like dynamic recording matches the music: deep articulate bass, clean, unprocessed top end and overall volumnous soundstage make for fun listening. Director Wim Wenders' film, written by Sam Shepard about the breakup of a marriage and the destruction of a human spirit, is a splinter of life story with the widest of implications. Partly for the message, and partly for the brilliant, understated acting of Harry Dean Stanton as the husband of Nastassja Kinski, who loses himself wandering through the desolate Texas desert I know, why would anybody wander away from Kinski.
The star here is Cooder's shimmering, forsaken bottleneck which will give you goosebumps the size of basketballs and remind you of dozens of television commercial tracks, all of which were lifted just about whole from this groundbreaking soundtrack. Forget those, and concentrate on what Cooder evokes from just a few well placed, insistent notes, and his sensuous bottleneck vibrato modulations.
Background textures by Dickinson will also give you the chills. Harry Dean Stanton's emotive singing on "Cancion Mixteca" is another highlight on this all too short album- about a half hour's worth, including an eight minute piece of dialogue mostly spoken by Stanton in a scene where he can see his estranged wife from behind a one way mirror. Sonically, this album recorded at Ocean Way by Allen Sides and Mark Ettel, and re-mixed by the later, is spectacular: Cooder's guitar is crystalline and sweet at the same time, and finely focused on a wide billowy expanse of air.
Dickinson's rumbling textures growl ominously below. Late night listening that's short, to the point, and unforgettable. Highest recommendation for music and sound.
Last seen in sealed in the bins as a budget issue. New or used, it's around, so look for it! Don't expect the CD to get you off, though. Another short, sweet, atmospheric Cooder soundtrack, sonically matching Paris Texas - not surprising since it was engineered and mixed mostly by Ettel at Ocean Way.
I just recently found my first copy of this. Not common, but worth looking for the cover features the same chain link fence motif as The Border. Blue City is one of Ry Cooder's least successful soundtracks.
