Acclaimed guitarist/songwriter/composer Ry Cooder's 1980 Warner Bros. album Borderline follows-up his 1979 effort Bop Till You Drop and it takes that album's charming electric R&B/soul explorations and mixes in sounds of the Southwest. Some of Cooder's collaborators here include the revered John Hiatt (guitar/vocals) and Jim Keltner (drums) and the substantial 10-song set is highlighted by impassioned cuts like "The Girls from Texas," "The Way We Make a Broken Heart" and "Crazy 'Bout an Automobile (Every Woman I Know)."

"Ry Cooder once likened his playing – a sublime amalgam of American folk and blues, Hawaiian slack-key guitar, the Tex-Mex zest of conjunto and the regal sensuality of Afro-Cuban son – as "some kind of steam device gone out of control." Cooder's life on guitar has been distinguished by a rare mix of archaic fundamentals and exploratory passion, from his emergence as a teenage blues phenomenon with Taj Mahal and Captain Beefheart in the mid-Sixties to his roots-and-noir film soundtracks and central role in the birth and success of the 1996 Havana supersession Buena Vista Social Club. 

"As a sideman, Cooder has brought true grit and emotional nuance to classic albums by Randy Newman, the Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton. Cooder is also a soulful preservationist, keeping vital pasts alive and dynamic in the modern world. A good example: the night Bob Dylan showed up at Cooder's house asking for a lesson on how to play guitar like the bluesman Sleepy John Estes." - #31 on Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Guitarists of All-Time
