It's hard to believe there was ever a time that Johnny Cash was irrelevant to the country music scene, but this "lost" release of "Out Among The Stars" is proof of that fact and it's just plain crazy. The album contains songs that Cash cut in 1981 and 1984 and never released because there simply was no market for his music at the time.

The sound quality of the material is excellent, better than a lot of other 80's era releases that I've heard showing the care that was put into the mastering of these tracks. Cash's voice is in fine form and he is singing his heart out. The instrumentation is top notch as well, including the great Marty Stuart playing guitar and mandolin on these tracks.

One of the highlights for me is a cover of the Hank Snow tune "I'm Movin' On" where Waylon Jennings joins Cash in the studio for the recording. Hearing both of their voices on a "new" track was priceless to me and they both show fine form here ripping through this track and having a grand time doing it. To me this track alone is worthy of the purchase price.

"She Used To Love Me A Lot" is a darker tune, but those are always the ones Johnny Cash did best. It's a song about losing someone important in your life and when Cash sings it you believe it.

Every now and then there's a song that you just have to hear to enjoy and there is a track like that here in "If I Told You Who It Was." It's a track about an intimate encounter with a famous female. It made me smile, then laugh out loud as the "secret" is revealed.

"Out Among The Stars" is a previously unreleased album by country icon Johnny Cash, who died in 2003 at the age of 71. John Carter Cash found his father's lost recordings, that were recorded in the early `80s and originally produced by Billy Sherrill, while combing through the family archives. With none of the twelve songs heard anywhere before (as performed by Johnny Cash), and the sound and production technology brought to modern standards, this album is an absolute must for fans of the legendary "Man In Black."

The album-opener "Out Among The Stars" starts out with the signature Johnny Cash train-track rhythm and his deep baritone singing about crime and retribution, and instantly became my favorite on this album. Other highlights are the ballad "She Used To Love Me A Lot," the bluegrass duet with June Carter Cash "Don't You Think It's Come Our Time" and "I Came To Believe," a track with some gospel influences. Other personal favorites are the catchy "I'm Moving On" which is a duet with Waylon Jennings, the darkly humorous "I Drove Her Out Of My Mind" and the even more fun "If I Told You Who It Was."

So, some 30 years after these sessions were originally recorded, we get to - posthumously - enjoy a great record and the fact that this was shelved - and forgotten - is surprising as these songs show that Cash was in the prime of his voice and thus the album "Out Among The Stars" is a great final legacy of "The Man In Black."

This is a fine Johnny Cash album. I'm very relieved to be able to say that, because previously rejected and rediscovered material might have turned out to be a load of substandard stuff cobbled together just to make money, but this is nothing of the kind. It's vintage Cash and his voice in particular is in terrific form here.

Johnny's son John Carter Cash discovered these master tapes while cataloguing his parents' recordings. It is material recorded in 1981 but rejected by the studio, presumably because it was unfashionable at the time. Now, it sounds just great - a mixture of pure country, Rock & Roll, ballads, comic songs and driving rockers, all with that inimitable Johnny Cash sound. His band is excellent, his wife June Carter Cash duets with him on two tracks and Waylon Jennings appears on one, but it's Johnny's vocals that really make this for me. He sounds simply fantastic, hitting every note smack in the middle even on the live recordings, phrasing everything perfectly, giving every song exactly the right meaning and tone, and hitting some of those spine-tingling low notes which made me fall in love with his music as a young boy over half a century ago.

I don't know whether any individual track here is a strong enough song to end up as a classic, but as a collection it's terrific. The opener is the title track, a powerful song about a desperate boy committing "suicide by police," but it's followed by the duet Baby Ride Easy with June, which just makes me smile and tap my feet. If I Told You Who It Was is an out-and-out comic song, delivered with exactly the right blend of heroic seriousness and knowing twinkle in the eye, I'm Moving On is just a great Country drifter's song...and so on.

Just like every other Johnny Cash album, this one is wonderful, imo. All previously unreleased songs, too. I figured everything he'd ever touched had been released already, until I heard about this album, like 3 months ago. Classic Cash. He can sing anyone's song, especially when June joins in. If you haven't already, buy this album! Let's all keep his music relevant. I'm only 37 & I am truly disappointed with the direction Country Music has taken. So, buy this & you'll at least hear Country Music in the classic Cash way, the way it's supposed to be. Definitely recommended! $9.99 ain't bad, either, especially for unreleased Cash tunes. Thanks John Carter Cash! And thanks to Johnny & June while they were with us, for the great gift of great music.
