    Ry Cooder in The Observer

    Ry Cooder's latest album, My Name Is Buddy, is due out on Nonesuch on March 6. "Hugely entertaining," exclaims the Observer's Tim Adams in an early review. "It's a road trip through vernacular American music, dustbowl blues, gospel, folk and bluegrass in the company of three unlikely characters: Buddy Red Cat, a hobo tabby and the friends he meets along the way: Lefty the Mouse, a union rodent till he dies, and the Reverend Tom Toad, a blind, gospel-singing, guitar-playing amphibian, forced out of his home by the Ku Klux Klan.  It sounds a little like Animal Farm as conceived by Woody Guthrie, or Bruce Springsteen's take on Wind in the Willows."
