Format: Audio CD
This is one of my favorite Johnny Cash albums and always has been, although it appears that other Cash fans are less enthusiastic. I'm not sure why, as I feel the Brian Ahern production, using members of Emmylou's Hot Band, adds something extra to his music without in any way detracting from the main focus - Johnny's very distinctive singing voice and style.
The big hit was Ghost riders in the sky, which reached number two on the American country charts. Johnny has never got as high as that again by himself, although he hit number one as a member of the Highwaymen.
My favorite track is I'll say its true, on which Johnny is joined by George Jones. Other great tracks include the opening The L and N don't stop here anymore and the track which closes the original album, I'm gonna sit on the porch and pick on my old guitar.
Two more duets with George Jones are added as bonus tracks - I still miss someone and I got stripes, both of which had been solo successes for Johnny around twenty years earlier.

I'll start this review off by critizing some of the critics of Johnny Cash. Everytime I read a review of an album, invariably someone says "I prefer" or "I'll stick with the Rick Rubin produced albums." Rick Rubin is a gifted man, he saw the inner spirit that Johnny had and brought it forth immaculately, but why do people compare the american albums with other efforts by the man in black. If you think that those cds are the greatest thing since sliced bread, of course you are going to be disappointed when you listen to anything else. To compare the two products would be like putting the Mona Lisa beside a child's drawing. IF YOU FEEL THAT WAY. I on the other hand beleive that Johnny Cash made terrific music his entire career. Even the cd's that I don't listen to all the time, I still love and could hear over and over. Silver is an awesome album, terribly underrated and beautifully produced. The horns on "The L&N Don't Stop Here Anymore" add to the song, rather than detract. "Bull Rider" is another great song. "I'll Say It's True" the "duet" with George Jones, isn't much of a duet as the latter acts as more of a back up singer than an active participant, though I immensely enjoy the bonus tracks with him, especially his vocal on "I Still Miss Someone." John himself could never touch the stirring original version, my favourite, but this is nice nonetheless. To return to my opening remarks once more, I hope that everyone can enjoy the great music that Johnny Cash left behind. I have nearly thirty cd's (no greatest hits here, except ring of fire, which isn't really a greatest hits package) and that means a lot of good music for me to listen to. But if you only like Rick Rubin produced efforts, your cds should be limited to four (unless you get the amazing box set Unearthed).

Format: Audio CD
This 1979 release was recorded and issued in celebration of Cash's twenty-fifth anniversary in show business. Ironically, and to its detriment, the album commemorates Cash's career by updating his sound with the production choices of Brian Ahern. The modern touches and adornments of brass and strings (not to mention phase-shifters on some of the guitars) detract, rather than magnify. The result is an odd compendium of Cash's trademark voice, fine original compositions, well-picked titles from Rodney Crowell and Billy Joe Shaver (among others), and an oddly unsatisfying sound.
Columbia/Legacy's reissue adds two previously unreleased bonus tracks, both recorded in 1979, and featuring George Jones sharing the vocals. "I Still Miss Someone" suffers from the underlying accompaniment (especially the processed guitar), but the combination of Cash and Jones on both cuts is a kick. It's impressive to hear a legend continuing to prospect new songs and new sounds after twenty-five years in the business, and though the songs are fine, the updated sound isn't one of Cash's more valuable strikes.

When SILVER first came out, it was significant in that Cash was collaborating with some of the hottest writers and musicians of the time. It also marked his first recording of "(Ghost) Riders in the Sky" and a hot, acoustic-driven studio version of "Cocaine Blues" (still a risky topic for a post-outlaw country album). Still, as much as I admire Brian Ahern's production of Emmylou Harris albums, I prefer the more spare production that Rick Rubin has given Cash's more recent efforts. The rugged integrity of Cash's performance, in my opinion, does not benefit from the polish of Ahern's production.

Format: Audio CD
Riding high off several years of sculpting delicious Emmylou Harris hits, producer Brian Ahern was brought in to twiddle the knobs on this late-'70s Cash effort. It's not a complete stylistic mismatch; I'm generally in favor of hearing Johnny try something different, although his low-key delivery isn't well suited to reap the benefits of Ahern's ornate "Happy Sack" production style, and Ahern wisely doesn't try to lay it on too thick. This album is sleepy, but it has its moments; and they did manage to get a big hit out of a cover version of "Ghost Riders In The Sky..." A few re-recordings, several new tunes, a bunch of guest performers -- including George Jones, a late '70s edition of the Carter Family, and bluegrasser Ricky Skaggs, brought in as a studio player on several songs. There's also a Rodney Crowell song on here, "Bullfighter," which was hardly one of Rodney's finest efforts, but it's still worth noting the introduction of material by Johnny's new son-in-law... Not Johnny's best, but it's a decent entry in his ouvre. Three and a half stars, maybe?
