Editorial Reviews

If not for gospel music, there never would have been a Johnny Cash. When Cash decided he wanted to be an entertainer, there was really only one type of music he intended to sing. Although Cash reinvented himself many times during his life, there was one way in which he never did: His faith. And this faith, with its roots so firmly planted in gospel music, stayed with him throughout his life.

Bootleg Vol. IV: The Soul Of Truth presents an intimate and personal look at Cash s passion for gospel music and his own spiritual path. Bootleg Vol. IV presents three rare albums in their entirety: A Believer Sings The Truth; an untitled, unreleased 1975 set; and Johnny Cash Gospel Singer. Among these hard-to-find recordings are 15 unreleased tracks including outtakes from the sessions at which the albums were recorded.

Johnny Cash's son, John Carter Cash, provides liner notes that detail Cash's upbringing on gospel and his passion for recording and performing this music despite resistance from his record labels. Though he would sing many kinds of music in his life, he was never truer than when he sang songs of faith.

To fully grasp Cash's legend, one must hear his earliest performances, as well as unreleased or under-promoted recordings that somehow remained out of earshot of an adoring (and still-expanding) public. Such is the mission of the Johnny Cash Bootlegs, a series of multiple-disc packages brimming with historical importance but also delivering thoroughly enjoyable listening experiences, each programmed to stand as a captivating doorway into Cash's popular legacy as effectively as any greatest hits compilation.

This is the fourth instalment in the legendary late country singer Johnny Cash's bootleg series titled 'Bootleg Vol. 4 : The Soul Of The Truth'. It has 3 rare gospel albums in their entirety namely (1) 'A Believer Sings The Truth', (2) an untitled, unreleased 1975 set & (3) 'Johnny Cash Gospel singer'. These albums are some of his earlier & under promoted material plus 15 unreleased tracks. This release has 2 CDs (total of 51 songs) though the wonderful tracks "What On Earth Would You Do (For Heaven's Sake) & "Over The Next Hill (We'll Be Home)" appear in both discs (different versions of course). Johnny Cash sings great gospel in this 2 CD release, delivering it in the form of Country Music mostly as well as in Blues, Bluegrass as in "I'm Just An Old Chunk Of Coal" & 'gospel sound' reminiscent of Jim Reeves as in "Back In The Fold", "Look Unto Upon The East", "That's Just Like Jesus" & "Never Grow Old".

Disc 1 (25 tracks) : Has Johnny Cash often with The Carter Family as well as Anitar Carter in "Over The Next Hill (We'll Be Home)" : great duet, guitar chords & melody, Rosanne Cash in "When He Comes", Rodney Crowell in "You'll Get Yours And I'll Get Mine" & "He Touched Me". All these four are stand-outs/gems/solid tracks as well as "Wings In The Morning", "Lay Me Down In Dixie" & "What On Earth (Will You Do For Heaven's Sake)".

Disc 2 (26 tracks) Has Johny Cash mainly solo but with June Carter Cash in "Waiting On The Far Side Banks Of Jordan" & Jessi Colter in "The Old Rugged Cross".

Bootleg Volume IV: The Soul of Truth is a welcome addition to Sony Legacy's ongoing reissues of Johnny Cash's back catalog, and an interesting complement to the previous releases in the "bootleg" series. Vol. 1 was the closest to a true "bootleg", compiling two discs' worth of solo acoustic numbers recorded by Johnny in his home studio between 1973-1982. Vol. 2 brought together demos, rare singles and b-sides, unreleased tracks, and an early radio program from Johnny's Sun and early Columbia days. Vol. 3, perhaps the weakest of the bunch, is a hodge-podge of live performances, some unreleased with others drawn from easily found live albums (why they chose to include tracks from the recently reissued Pa Osteraker, I'll never know).

Volume IV, however, is a completist's dream. Focusing on Johnny's love of gospel music, it offers three complete, hard-to-find albums in their entirety on two discs, complete with unreleased bonus tracks. Disc one offers up "A Believer Sings the Truth", a 20-track double-album recorded in 1979 and released in 1980 on the small Cachet label. Tracks from that album were released in 1984 on an even smaller label as the "I Believe" album, with four unreleased songs from the same sessions. These four extra tracks, as well as one further unreleased track - "Truth" round out disc 1.

Disc two begins with 12 tracks intended as a 1975 album which was ultimately shelved. One of these came out a few years ago as a bonus track on some editions of the "Ultimate Gospel" compilation, while another was found on a recent Reader's Digest set. Here, now, we have the unnamed album in its entirety! The remainder of the album is the unreleased 1982 album "Johnny Cash - Gospel Singer".
