Chavez Ravine album for sale by Ry Cooder was released Jun 14, 2005 on the Nonesuch (USA) label.

This is one of those rare records that has that something 'extra' which can leave the listener feeling somehow different and better after listening to it, even after listening to it 10 times in a row.

Although the storyline of the album is about Los Angeles, it brings me back to my youth in Tucson, Arizona.
