Ry Cooder - Bop Till you Drop Live!!!!

Bop till You Drop is Ry Cooder's eighth album, released in 1979 (see 1979 in music). This was the first major-label digitally recorded album of Pop music. It was recorded on a 32-track machine built by 3M.[5][6]
The album consisted almost entirely of covers of earlier R&B and rock'n'roll classics, including Elvis Presley's "Little Sister" and the 1965 Fontella Bass-Bobby McClure hit "Don't Mess Up a Good Thing", on which Cooder duetted with soul star Chaka Khan, who also performed on the only original track on the album, "Down in Hollywood".
