The opening track to Ry Cooder's 2011 album, "Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down," available at http://www.nonesuch.com/albums/pull-u...

Inspired by a news headline about the Wall Street bailout, Ry Cooder began work on his album "Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down" with this song, "No Banker Left Behind," an ode to the corrupt few spared from the financial crisis while most were left to fend for themselves. Uncut calls the album "one of his best albums ever ... an impassioned portrait of 21st century America and its injustices" in which Cooder is "remade as a modern-day Woody Guthrie, fearless and funny, for like Guthrie he nails his targets with droll humour while empathising with society's underdogs." The BBC calls it "essential listening."
