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

5.0 out of 5 stars The One And Only Johnny Cash November 8, 2008
By Mike B.
Format:Audio CD
Much attention has been given to Johnny Cash's years with Sun Records, his long stint with Columbia, and the Rick Rubin-produced "American" series. All but forgotten are the five albums he made for Mercury from 1987 to 1991, when he was in-between his Columbia and American contracts.

I began collecting Cash in 1979, when he issued his album "Silver" - which I still think is the best record he ever made. Sales were good, but Columbia failed to promote such great follow-up releases as "Johnny 99" (1983) and "Rainbow" (1985). When "Rainbow" didn't sell, Columbia let him go and he signed with Mercury. Over the next 5 years he recorded 4 albums of new material for them, and one album of re-recordings of old hits ("Classic Cash '88"). Of the five, these two were the best. Some of the finest work he ever did is contained herein, and it's nice to have them together on one compact disc.

"Johnny Cash Is Coming To Town" (1987) was his label debut, and found him paired up with producer Jack Clement, who had produced many of his earliest hit singles. Cash sings Elvis Costello's "The Big Light", and two by Guy Clark ("Let Him Roll" and "Heavy Metal"). Johnny himself wrote "The Ballad Of Barbara", and I think it's one of the 10 best songs he's ever written. Other tracks are wonderfully descriptive story songs: "The Night Hank Williams Came To Town", and a tribute to Western swing pioneers "W. Lee O'Daniel (And The Light Crust Doughboys)". "Letters From Home" is absolutely beautiful. "My Ship Will Sail" concludes the album with rousing Carter Family backing choruses.

"Water From The Wells Of Home" (1988) is a record of all duets, and begins with a remake of his old hit "Ballad Of A Teenage Queen" (with parts of it sung by his daughter Rosanne Cash and the Everly Brothers).

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical Cash September 19, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This recording has some tracks that I was not familiar with but very well done. I bought the CD for two tracks "The night Hank Williams came to Town" and "Sixteen Tons" .Cash's cigarette spiced baritone voice is one of my favorite's.
