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.
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.
I am not a country music fan, I prefer classical, opera and folk, but Johnny Cash has a special place in my heart. "Silver" is worth every penny.
