Ryland Peter "Ry" Cooder (born March 15, 1947) is an American musician, songwriter, film score composer, and record producer. He is a t but is best known for his slide guitar work, his interest in roots music from the United States, and his collaborations with traditional musicians from many countries. Cooder's solo work draws upon many genres.
Ry Cooder's soundtrack for The Long Riders received a top-notch treatment from Warner Bros. Japan), who not only did an excellent remastering job, but backed it up with English lyrics to the songs, notes, and a Japanese insert. Cooder was in fine form with this score, using original material, unusual and anachronistic instruments (saz, tamboura, electric guitar), and elements of traditional songs from the Civil War period. As a result, the album can be appreciated as a unique entity, away from the film – and bonded to the film, the music provides grace and power to the onscreen events.
The songs move at a pretty, slow place, and the opening track sees Cooder plucking his guitar's strings and letting that sound vibrate into thin air; it's a motif that he returns to repeatedly throughout the score. Cooder makes the music sound as modern and stylish as acoustic music can sound. The album is at once alien and organic.

The Prodigal Son Returns: Ry Cooder And A Late-Career Classic. Full of spirit and humanity, ‘The Prodigal Son’ is vintage Cooder that speaks to people at risk and oppressed on all sides. Published on. May 11, 2019. The album’s 11 tracks include three Cooder originals and a carefully curated selection of blues, gospel and bluegrass from the early decades of the 20th Century. The guitar maestro has always had a close affinity with the music of Blind Willie Johnson, the Texas blues musician who died in 1945; Cooder recorded a seminal version of the hymn-like ‘Dark Was The Night, Cold was the Ground’ back in 1973. Religion runs through the album, from the biblical parable that inspired the traditional title song, to the core of spiritual tracks that are a pivotal theme on The Prodigal Son and which offer an unflinching look at modern America through the prism of morality.
