: : : Sonny`s music may have been used for this film, but he did not play on it, unless it was from the grave. Ry Cooder did all the studio work, fills and background..
: : the film was made in 1986.i have a soundtrack of the film & on the credits its says sonny terry on harp.inside the back cover is a picture of sonny & ry cooder in the recording studio during the making of the sound track.
: I wont argue that issue, I know when the film came out and when S. T. died and the CDs Ive seen and amazon.com give Ry Cooder all the credit, go figure, thats the Blues.. All the Best to the UK..
i cant work it out either,so i went to look on other sites concerning sonny & he is credited for playing on 2 songs,the only thing i can think of is that the sound track was recorded earlier than the film ? but i must agree with you that something is not right.
our thoughts are with all in the USA.
