Biography

Beginning his career as an outlaw to the Nashville establishment, Johnny Cash has come to define country music over the last 40 years. At first, his unique mix of hillbilly music with gospel and blues made him a perfect fit at Sam Phillips' Sun records, where he recorded such classics as "Folsom Prison Blues" and "I Walk The Line." From there, Johnny signed with ... Read more in Amazon's Johnny Cash Store

Editorial Reviews

Johnny reached deep into his faith all throughout his life, and it shows in many of his recordings. Each of these 16 songs is a gospel, spiritual or song of praise that spoke to Johnny. You can hear his soul soar as he adds his own special touch to these magnificent recordings.

Format: Audio CD
I am not a person who digs "gospel" music, but what Johnny Cash does on this album is like something right out of the Bible; a man who has known darkness and sin telling you "My God Is Real" and "It Was Jesus", "The Man In White", who saved him by His "Redemption." He makes the oft-overdone "Swing Low Sweet Chariot" an earnest pleeding to Heaven, and "Cowboy's Prayer", "Why Me Lord", and "The Old Account" are sung with a fervor that sounds autobiographical.
In an age where "Christian" Rock is increasingly making waves, people need to give far more heed to albums like this! THIS is what religion should be: Real, Honest, and Life-Changing. Amen, Johnny... Amen!

13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Johnny Heering on February 25, 2005
Format: Audio CD
This is a collection of religious songs by Johnny Cash, personally selected by Cash himself. The earliest song is from 1957 (one of the few religious songs he was allowed to record for Sun Records) and the most recent song is from 1996 (his second American Recordings album). This is good music that should appeal to Johnny Cash's fans, especially his Christian fans. You can tell his religious convictions are heartfelt when you hear him sing these songs. Recommended to Johnny Cash fans.

Format: Audio CD
This disc collects together music handpicked by Johnny Cash to express the religious faith he grew up with that sustained him through a hard life as a cottonpicker in Arkansas, the death of his older brother at a young age in a sawmill accident, and by Cash's own account through a long battle with booze and pills. The God Cash sings about is not some casual acquaintance or marketing tool to capture a certain segment of his listening audience: it is Someone Cash knows and loves and he Wants you to love Him too. The songs here range from a 1957 track ("Belshazzar" cut while Johnny was still with Sun Records) through 1996 ("Kneeling Drunkard's Plea" on American Records).

HIGHLIGHTS:

"Redemption" is probably the single most powerful tune here: expressing the totality of the sacrifice Jesus made for us. "Man in White" is a clever retelling of Saul's conversion on the road to Damascus. ("I was blinded so that I might see...") "Belshazzar" was one of the few gospel tracks Sam Phillips allowed Johnny to cut while at Sun and it's a good one. The trademark "boom chicka boom" guitar underscores the tale of a king "Weighed in the balance and found wanting" by a disembodied hand.

LOWS:

"The Great Speckled Bird" is a country music/gospel standard but Johnny's version doesn't really sound heartfelt. Johnny himself in the liner notes says "At times, I'm a voice crying in the wilderness, but at times I'm right on the money and I know what I'm singing about." I'm guessing that was a "wilderness" moment.

BOTTOM LINE:

Fans of Cash who aren't opposed to genuine emotional Christian expression will find a lot to love here. Fans of Christian music who usually listen only to touchy-feely "I'm OK..

Format: Audio CD
This is the first time I've ever done an online music review but just bought this CD last night. I've been a Johnny Cash fan for years and have only been listening to country/bluegrass gospel since O' Brother. This is quickly one of my favorite Cash albums and one of my favorite gospel albums. "What on Earth Will You Do for Heaven's Sake" isn't a teaser followed by a bunch of junk, it sets the tone for some wonderful music that only that voice, that wonderful voice of Johnny Cash steals right into your heart with. "Greatest Cowboy of Them All", "Great Speckled Bird", "Old Account", "Swing Low", "When He Comes", "Kneeling Drunkard's Plea", "Man in White" (if you know the story behind the song, I promise you'll end the song quite misty-eyed), and "Angel Band" (what a beautiful version here) are a long list of real stand outs.

Despite all his wrong doings, God still holds a place in heaven for Johnny Cash. Cash has known throughout his entire career and has praised God for this.
This CD is a great collection of songs selected and performed by Cash that express his love for God. Listening to this album, you have figure that if God has a place for Johnny Cash, He should have a place for you.

I am not a Christian, but I still count this CD as among the best that the Man in Black ever cut. The album resonates with emotion and John's voice truly is the telling sign of how personal these tunes were for him. Also, be sure to check out the other 3 albums in the "quadrilogy:" Murder, Love, and Life.

I own many CDs that are great for cerebral enjoyment and intense focusing. This disc pushes me to sing along any time I listen to it. I don't know how many times I've tried to follow along and sing the way Cash phrases "Swing Low." Clearly my favorites are It was Jesus and The Man in White. I play this at work and despite the religious theme, it is great music and definitely worth listening to. This is a great way to start collecting music with a Christian theme. You should start here also.
