n 1995, when Ry Cooder & David Lindley went out on a short tour across Europe, Cooder s last solo-album had been 1987 s Get Rhythm. He had, however been spending time working alongside a number of fellow musicians during this period, such as Malain guitarist, Ali Farka Touré, Hindi slide and classical guitarist, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt and, most successfully, with John Hiatt, Nick Lowe and Jim Keltner, as a member of Little Village. David Lindley, as was his want, had also been collaborating with others, most recently with Warren Zevon, on Zevon s ninth record Mutineer. But in the early summer of 95, both these master musicians decided to keep it in the family , and indeed set out for a jaunt with Cooder s son, drummer, percussionist and keyboard player Joaquim in tow, and with Lindley s daughter, vocalist Roseanne, on what came to be known as The Family Tour. The entourage performed in the UK, the Netherlands, France, Italy et al, and on 6th July they played in Vienna at the prestigious State Opera House, for a concert that was recorded and broadcast both locally and back home in the US.
