Editorial Reviews

June Carter Cash is a country music blueblood through and through. As daughter of Maybelle Carter, a member of the pioneering Carter Family, her pedigree was well established; as wife and musical partner of Johnny Cash, her stature in country music lore was confirmed. However, with 1999's glorious Press On, her first solo effort in more than 25 years, she has made her own stellar contribution to the genre, one that sits comfortably alongside the work of her "aristocratic" company. Supported by warm and delicate acoustic strumming (from her own Autoharp as well as from Norman Blake and Marty Stuart among others), Cash proves herself to be an insightful and appealing songwriter capable of reconciling traditional themes with an acute awareness of modern times. One moment she sings of angels, family, and mortality, the next she blasts New York and Quentin Tarantino. Toss in a charming remake of her own composition "Ring of Fire," a powerful gospel duet with husband Johnny, and three Carter Family favorites, and the result is a lovely and expressive record that lives up to the promise of her esteemed names. --Marc Greilsamer

June Carter Cash passed into eternity yesterday. She left us . . . she left us a legacy of great "country/mountain/American" music. Thos CD album which she made in 1999 was the last completed album she issued (the previous one was 1975!). Her commonly used phrase "press on" she chose for its title and appropriately so.
She sings a slower version of the song she co-wrote and which was a hit for her husband, Johnny Cash: "Ring Of Fire"! She does a "prophetic" song "The Far Side Banks Of The Jordan" with Johnny on this CD in which they promise if one should go and leave the other early, they will be the first one there to greet the other when they do come to "the far side banks of the Jordan". And now we know that June has gone on first and will be waiting to greet Johnny when he goes to join her,
My favorite track is a song June wrote and sings called "I Used To Be Somebody". She remembers her life and career and the people she met and knew as friends who had passed-away. She sings,"I ain't never gonna see James Dean again. . . I ain't ever gonna see Elvis again. . ." and now we can add ,"I ain't ever gonna see June Carter Cash again".
She ends the CD with the Carter Family classic, "Will The Circle Be Unbroken". And now, at least for a time, if the circle is unbroken, there seems to be a large gap . . . we'll see which of the Carters closes that gap to complete the circle again.
This is a great album and it has all the feel of listening to June Carter and friends sitting and singing out on the back-porch. That's the way she intended it to sound and she succeeded in bringing her music into our homes and into our lives as though she were just there on our porch singing to us.

I'm sorry to say I had never taken a chance to listen to this wonderful album until June Carter Cash's passing away last week. Maybe I thought that an autoharp could not generate serious, genuine music. On "Press On," June's folksy voice and harp are accompanied by a talented clan including her husband Johnny Cash, Rodney Crowell, Marty Stuart, Norman Blake, and others.
Although there are a lot of wonderful tracks on this album, the stunner--one of the greatest, most heart-wrenching tracks I've ever heard--is June's duet with husband Johnny Cash, "Far Banks of Jordan," a song about one spouse already in heaven so aching for her partner that she sits by the river Jordan waiting to "wade into the shallow water reaching for your hand" on her sweetheart's own arrival. It'll break your heart to hear this.
There's also a dynamite version of "Ring of Fire," an old Johnny Cash hit that some may not know was actually written by June. Eight of the tracks on this albums showcase June's songwriting skills, and another three are older 'traditional' songs by her famous uncle, A.P. Carter, including the classic "Will the Circle Be Unbroken?" There are a couple of silly throw-aways: "Gatsby's Restaurant," and "Tiffany Anastasia Lowe," but isn't June entitled to a little fun?
June offers a little friendly patter to her fellow musicians (who are top-notch) in between the tracks. It's good to hear her voice again.

If you're reading this page without having heard this CD, you're probably a bit confused by the reviews. Most of the reviewers gave the CD 4 or 5 stars and very high praise, but a few were very critical, giving it one or two stars. Let me see if I can help clear things up.
If you are buying this looking for great music, expecting that the Carter family tradition, husband Johnny Cash (who appears in the duet: The Far Side Banks of Jordan) and the other guest superstars would surely deliver it, you could be disappointed. For originality, creativity, and especially vocally, this CD is not the best you'll ever hear. June Carter Cash's voice was never the best of the family (Even Johnny will tell you that; he credits Anita Carter with the best female voice in country music) and it's faded a bit with age as well. Johnny appears only months after his (false) diagnosis with Shy-Drager syndrome, and his voice sounds weary and (dare I say it?) wavering, at least for him. Marty Stuart's contribution is minor and its value is mostly in the quality guitar and manodlin work he provides, you may not even hear him in the background vocals unless you listen closely. Also, if what you're looking for is great music, June's talking between songs may annoy you.
It doesn't really contribute much to the music. The songwriting on this isn't bad though. About half of the songs were written by June, some of them new. Tiffany Anastasia Lowe sounds like a strange novelty song, but the others seem more country-folk, very much in the Carter family tradition. The rest of the album consists of a couple of Carter family standards and well known gospel tunes. Perhaps the best of these is the last track, "Will the Circle be Unbroken" where a simple arrangement is used and June's voice is at its best.

June Carter Cash's Press On will remind everyone what country music used to sound like. It beats the stuffing out of the country-pop junk that's played on the radio these days (Shania Twain, Garth Brooks, et al). With restrained, tasteful accompaniment from Norman Blake, Marty Stuart, Rodney Crowell, and others, and a guest appearance by husband Johnny Cash, this is a CD to savor again and again.
