The last recordings of Johnny Cash are beautiful, but I can't help feeling sad when I listen. It's an absolutely brilliant album anyway.

I was surprised at the beauty and power of the music. It is nice to hear unadorned music, and music capable of standing on its own two feet.

Is there one more recent than the one with "Hurt"?

That one is one of my favorite all time albums!

Released on Tuesday 4th July...

American V: A Hundered Highways

Features Johnny's last recorded music and the last song he ever wrote (Like The 309). Recorded in the months leading up to his death and in the wake of June's death. Producer Rick Rubin pretty much had the vocal tracks alone, and himself finished the work by adding the music himself in the years since Johnny died.

I read a review in the Washington Post this week about it an', well, I wasn't ever a big J.C. fan, I'm curious...

I do, however, have and enjoy the CD he did that--was it Tom Petty produced-- that has the song "Cut My Rusty Chains and Run", 'er somethin' like that... J.C. actually sings on key on that one...

But, yeah, I'm kinda curious...

And just last night we watched the video of Johnny and June on Pete Seeger's old TV show---The Rainbow Quest. It's just the 3 of 'em shooting the breeze and swapping songs. Pete gets confused about how A.P. and Sarah and Maybelle were related to each other, and June takes the ball and cleverly sets everything straight. She was a charming and a lovely young woman. I treasure that show.

"I do, however, have and enjoy the CD he did that--was it Tom Petty produced-- that has the song "Cut My Rusty Chains and Run", 'er somethin' like that"

That was another of the American recordings. I believe they're all produced by Rick Rubin. "Rusty Cage" was a cover of seminal Seattle grunge band Soundgarden's bit hit from 1991.

the cover of the Lightfoot tune was sad, really. The weakness in his
once SO powerful voice is hard to listen to ... and I don't think it's a great cover anyway :(

i grew up with johnny roy the barefoot boy & my very first LP record,
bought in Winnipeg for $4.20, was Ride this Train none of the tunes on which, as I recall, ever played on the radio. It was a travelogue with Johnny talking, introducing the tunes, which are set in half a dozen different states. The train whistle ... and Cash's incredible recitation of the names of about 50 North American tribes

Mohawk, Mandan, Kickapoo, Cree, &c., &c.

cheers

I have listened to the set a couple of times. It is likeable and unfussy, like the previous four recordings. For me it lacks the momentum of the previous recordings though. I felt the project was running out of ideas. Nowhere does it have the energy or unease which was instilled into the cuts with Tom Petty, or the more modern songs covered so inspiredly on the earlier albums. It is a dignified exit, but it does not add anything, which is genuinely indispensible.
