Johnny Cash - Out Among The Stars Teaser

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

2009 collection containing remixed versions of Johnny's original Sun recordings. These songs were recorded with Cash's band, the Tennessee Two, and were pure and stark with only the essentials; guitar, light percussion and Johnny's unmistakable voice. The challenge was to maintain Cash's fantastic charm and personality while filling out the sound and creating bold re-interpretations. The remix producer's reverence and gratitude were essential to the process. The goal was to bring the sensibility and technology of 2009 to recordings universally accepted as timeless with the endorsement and cooperation of the custodians of Johnny Cash's legacy.

Hubby and I are huge Johnny Cash fans, and there has been much heated discussion in our house about this newly released collection of classic Johnny Cash songs remixed by artists such as Alabama 3 (think Sopranos theme), Count de Money, Snoop Dogg's new QDT team, and Pete Rock. Since our musical tastes vary widely (dance, blues, hip hop, classic rock, punk, rockabilly, country, Motown, Stax,....) but we tend to like "original" sound, we really weren't sure about this. I decided to refrain from looking at any reviews until we had listened to the CD and watched the "making of" video which is also available at the Johnny Cash Remixed website.

The project was Executive Produced by John Carter Cash (Johnny and June's son), Snoop Dogg, and Mathew Knowles (Beyoncé's father), so there is some real music pedigree and blood connection to the original music in this work, which was conceived as a way of bringing some of Cash's seminal music to a wider audience. As my husband is a Southerner born and bred and LOVES Johnny Cash I let him listen first. His response was that I "had to listen to it" because it "managed to be respectful to Cash's music while still interesting in a contemporary way."

So I listened, and then listened again and again. And while I found some of the new mixes tiresome (Snoop Dogg's conversational remix of "I Walk the Line" is a bit too forced and overdone while Kennedy's "Sugartime" sounds like a bad repetitive commercial jingle), I generally enjoyed the plays on classic country blues. Philip Steir's "Get Rhythm" makes me want to dance my blues away just like the shoeshine guy whose story is the song, and Count de Money's remix of "Big River" is riveting.

Regarding the first two reviews:
It seems that if it was okay for Johnny Cash to take songs from nine inch nails, tom waits, leonard cohen, bob marley and depeche mode (!) and put his unique stamp on them I'm not sure why it would be wrong for other artists to do similar work with his catalog.
Some of the tracks do not work (snoops version IS atrocious, some are extraordinarily good. Unfortunatley some people do not have the same open mind that Johnny Cash seemed to have.

4.0 out of 5 stars The man in black gets new beats October 15, 2008
Format:Vinyl
Taking on classic Johnny Cash songs is no easy job for a remixer/producer. There have been many remix projects that were nothing short of a disaster.

Most of the selections on JOHNNY CASH REMIXED are enjoyable updates. The best examples are "Big River" remixed by Count De Money, "Get Rhythm," remixed by Philip Steir, "Doin' My Time," remixed by The Heavy, ""Country Boy," remixed by Sonny J., "Leave That Junk Alone" reconstructed (new vocals) by Alabama 3, "Folsom Prison Blues," remixed by Pete Rock, "Straight A's In Love," remixed by Troublemaker, and "Sugartime," remixed by Kennedy.

The set starts off with the definitive classic "I Walk The Line," which is one of the few remix/remakes that doesn't work. First off, the harmonic keys between the new music and the Cash vocal samples clash throughout the song. Snoop Dogg dominates the track--- Johnny's vocals seem to be an after thought. Cash sounds like he's coming out of a pocket AM radio.

"Doin' My Time" features a new vocal with Cash (barely) in the background. "Leave That Junk Alone" also features a new lead vocal, but with Johnny's vocals sounding richer. "Folsom Prison Blues"(106 BPM) is one of the best mixes on the set, as is "Sugartime (92 bpm)."

Most of the tracks not mentioned lean towards a darker ambient side that you'll have give a few listens to at first. There aren't any house/dance or electronica versions here, and we can all be glad they didn't go that route. The tempos are in the range of the originals on most of the songs. For true fans of Johnny Cash this will be something different and unique to treasure, and have some fun with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, the purists.... August 19, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The great Johnny Cash proved in his lifetime to be more open minded than his fans. He adopted the same philosophy of another music great, Duke Ellington, who said:

"There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind".

Cash took songs from Trent Reznor, Depeche Mode, Roberta Flack, and interpreted them his way. It is only fair that other artists render tribute to Cash by playing his songs as well. Get over it, people.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Great...but Interesting February 5, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I'm a country music fan, so I can't rate this album as great, but it is interesting. Listeners should not try to compare it to Johnny Cash's own work, but should consider this a totally separate undertaking. I listen to the album occasionally and enjoy it. I think the mood of the album is somewhat dark, but sometimes that is just what I want to hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed it!! February 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I'm really not sure why people have such negative reviews about this project.I went into this with an open mind,and was just as happy going out as I was going in.I find myself playing it over and over.Here's why:
#1--Johnny Cash Rules.
#2--Original Vocals by Johnny Cash
#3--Luther Perkins(My Hero)on guitar.
#4--Marshall Grant(Bass)--although he's somewhat muted here.
#5--This is a tribute---not a mashing.Good DVD included.
It's just something fun to listen to,nothing more,nothing less.
Crank Up "Big River"...it has the beat that I felt was always there anyway....Awesome!!!
I really enjoyed "Straght A's in Love"--one of my personal favorites.Souped up and scratchin'!!
If you like hip/hop(which I don't)or modern music(which I don't),let Johhny Cash bridge the gap........amazingly,it all works.I love it!!!
Maybe Jerry Lee,Roy Orbison,Carl Perkins...will be next??Let's hope so!!
