Ali Farke Toure and Ry Cooder have long treasured each other's recordings. They first met in London
in 1992 while both were touring Europe. It was agreed that they should 'try something together'. This
'something' became 'Talking Timbuktu', a Grammy award-winning classic album.
In September '93 Toure was set to play a string of dates in the States and a week was set aside for
recording his new album. Cooder was to play on a couple of tracks. A few hours' rehearsal at Cooder's
Santa Monica home hinted at inspiring possibilities. The Malian guitarist's next three Californian dates
all featured Cooder as special guest. The recording followed a week later by which time Cooder had
agreed to produce the entire album and play on every track. The whole album, recorded in three days,
is now available on vinyl with an additional previously unreleased track.
"A tour de force. The album constitutes an instant member of the miniscule list of truly
interesting collaborations between African and American musicians."
