Song Of The Day – “Tamp ‘Em Up Solid” by Ry Cooder

27 Jul


Ry Cooder should be named a living national treasure. Aside from being a master multi-instrumentalist on guitar, slide guitar, mandolin, accordian, the man is an expert historian on American music. At ease in any style from the blues, gospel, jazz, folk,hawaiian slack-key he can do it all. “Tamp ‘Em Up Solid”,  a traditional off his classic album Paradise and Lunch, shows  combines elements of  gospel, country, and jaw dropping finger picking into a foot stomping good time. For this live performance Cooder does a stripped down version, with just himself, guitar and his backing singer allowing his  finger picking to have all the spotlight.

They don't make album covers like this anymore.
