There's a lovely set from Ry Cooder and David Lindley and two of their offspring over at the wonderful BB Chronicles this morning. This set from Ry and his son Joachim on percussion, David Lindley with daughter Rosanne hence the title 'The Family Tour' from The State Opera House in Vienna back in 1995 is a rare treat. It is quite frankly staggering quality and great, great fun that will have you dancing around the living room if anything will!
