Seldom has any artist captured that ineffable “high, lonesome sound” quite as
beautifully as Ry Cooder did on his landmark soundtrack to Wim Wenders’ 1984
film Paris, Texas. Not quite blues, not quite bluegrass, not quite ambient,
Cooder’s haunting, evocative score mirrors the existential journey of Harry Dean
Stanton’s Travis Henderson as he wanders through the empty Texas prairie
landscape in pursuit of his irretrievable past. With the able help of
multi-instrumentalists David Lindley and Jim Dickinson, Cooder crafts a
soundscape (much of it based on Blind Willie Johnson’s “Dark Was the Night, Cold
Was the Ground”) that is profoundly sad yet leavened with bits of humor and
Real Gone Music is proud to present this classic soundtrack in a clear vinyl
edition limited to 480 copies.
