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

This disc, originally released in 1980, is an odd duck. It's neither rockabilly nor blues, and despite the occasional moderne backing sounds, Cash's resonant baritone maintains its typical command of center stage. Perhaps most interesting is the song selection, featuring several new Cash tunes, as well as songs by pop-craftsman (and one time Cash son-in-law) Nick Lowe, outlaws Kris Kristofferson and Billy Joe Shaver, the legendary Steve Goodman and John Prine and country stalwart (and also one time Cash son-in-law) Rodney Crowell. In addition, many of the songwriters turn up as players, augmented by country luminaries such as June Carter Cash, and British new-wave stars like Dave Edmunds and Pete Thomas. It's quite a crowd, but producer Earl Ball keeps it focussed.
Cash has challenged himself with several up-tempo songs and a band that can swing a bit wide of Nashville standard time. Still, Nick Lowe's "Without Love" sounds uncannily like a Johnny Cash song, and Billy Joe Shaver's "The Cowboy Who Started The Fight" provides exactly the sort of narrative on which Cash's voice finds authority.
Nothing here is as hauntingly effective as Cash's earliest sides with the Tennessee Two, but neither is this the sound of a great artist coasting. It may not be the right disc to begin one's appreciation of Johnny Cash, but it's a great place to view his on-going legacy.

This man deserves every ounce of respect that is given to him. I love the guy. This disc was recorded at a time in his career that he admitted to being creatively stuck. While this disc has it's moments,(Billy Joe Shaver's "The Cowboy who Started a Fight,") overall, this one ranks as average. It wasn't till a few years later that he bounced back, but boy, did he ever bounce back! This might be one to pass on, and skip over to his early 90's releases.

This may have been intended to evoke memories of Johnny's Sun recordings of the fifties, but it fails to do that because the basic sound was updated for the late seventies. Nevertheless, it is still a fine album.

The songs made little impact when released as singles, but the songs I like best are The Twentieth Century is Almost Over (recorded prematurely as there was still 20 years to go at the time; Alabama covered the song much nearer the time) and One Way Rider (with June Carter), a Rodney Crowell song that Ricky Skaggs also recorded. Other great songs include The Last Time (the Kris Kristofferson song, not the Rolling Stones song) and Without Love.

Perhaps not an album for those who just want a little of his music, but a nice album for his fans.
