"World Boogie is Coming!"
by Ry Cooder
It is 2006, light years away from the time of Gus Cannon, DeFord Bailey, and Emmett Miller. The culture of the country has been hijacked by life-style hotshot pimps who join with consumer fascists in selling you back to yourself. Who can you trust? Nobody, in the immortal words of Bert Williams. Who will sing for you, the question posed by Carter Stanley, gone to his reward, unable to answer.
But there is someone, a knowing man, even a man of American family values, who raised his two boys in the sacred code of right and wrong, American-style: Jim Dickinson, son of a Delta match salesman, a code-talker, a personal friend of mine.
Take a seat, listen in, find your place.
