  • Cash !

    For those of you who enjoy music, go out and buy "American VI: Ain't No Grave", the final CD by Johnny Cash (released post-humously of course), and produced brilliantly, again, by Rick Rubin.
    If you know even a little about Cash and his life, and are not incredibly moved by this music, then call the coroner - you're dead...jmo, of course...

    I was/am a great admirer of Johnny Cash early work. Unfortunately, his last song was a pathetic shadow of his good stuff.

      Re: Cash !

      review in my rag:

      <<.."There ain't no grave can hold my body down," Johnny Cash sings, opening the final set of songs he recorded with producer Rick Rubin before his death in 2003. The Man in Black's mood is tough but resigned. He had just buried his wife, June Carter Cash, and was coming to terms with his own mortality after years of health problems left him at a standstill. With 10 tracks clocking in at a half hour, it's a brief goodbye that sees Cash lending his gravelly bass-baritone to solemn covers of Sheryl Crow's "Redemption Day," Kris Kristofferson's "For the Good Times" and Tom Paxton's "I Can't Help But Wonder Where I'm Bound," as well as a new original, "1 Corinthians, 15:55." Even though it is the last piece of the "American Recordings" collection, it is also the least likely to inspire tears. Using members of the Avett Brothers and Tom Petty's band to flesh out the songs, Rubin has made them sound unexpectedly sweet-natured, capturing not the dread that comes from expecting death but the sense of liberation that comes with crossing over....>>

        Bought my copy from Best Buy exactly one week ago.

        Really liked the cover of "For the Good Times."

        And Mike Campbell is (again) awesome on acoustic guitar. Campbell is one of the BIG reasons these American recordings of JC are so great.

            I was hoping for something about "Cash Cab."
