Arranger: Johnny Cash.
In the past, if you wanted a Johnny Cash compilation, you were basically confined by licensing issues, as Cash's seminal Sun recordings weren't generally available in the same place as his more eclectic Columbia output. THE ESSENTIAL JOHNNY CASH solves that problem, tying together the various eras of Cash's career on a generous 35-track, two-disc set. Accordingly, this anthology is damn near definitive. From the raw, sparse rockabilly flavor of "Hey Porter" and "Get Rhythm" to the gospel roots of "Where You There (When They Crucified My Lord," the first disc moves neatly through Cash's early career.
Disc two documents Cash's expansion into ever more varied stylistic avenues. Countrified covers of Bob Dylan ("It Ain't Me Babe") and Tim Hardin ("If I Were a Carpenter") exemplify his fascination with folk-rock. The socially conscious "Man in Black" and the patriotic "Ragged Old Flag" perfectly display the ostensibly conflicting sides of this complex artist's sensibilities. Album-closer "The Wanderer" finds Cash collaborating with U2, filling his role as icon to a whole new generation of artists.
Artist Overview
The original "man in black," Johnny Cash originally auditioned as a gospel singer for Sun Records before developing his distinctive "boom chicka boom" sound. A series of iconic singles, most notably "I Walk the Line" and "Ring of Fire," made Cash a household name. The darker edge of his material resonated with the emerging rock audience as well as country fans, and in 1968 Columbia released At Folsom Prison, one of the most acclaimed live recordings of all time. His country hits receded during the '80s and '90s, but a renaissance came via the outstanding American Recordings series, sparse masterpieces produced by Rick Rubin. ~ Rovi Staff
