June Carter Cash leaves a fitting legacy

on 9/9/2003

I was expecting a lot from this album when I popped it into my CD player and I was not disappointed. Wildwood Flower, June Carter Cash’s last studio album could quite easily be her very best as it contains some of the finest from the Carter Family catalog. From the first track “Keep on the Sunny Side”, the folk classic until “Wildwood Flower” the CD keeps your interest with June’s beautiful voice which is unlike no one else. The song “Will You Miss Me When I’m Gone” is especially poignant considering it was her “farewell.” Her husband Johnny Cash is on most of the songs, and her daughter, Roseanne wrote the liner notes which are a beautiful eulogy to her mother. Also on the enhanced CD is her last recording session and a tour of the Carter estate by June. Wildwood Flower is a wonderful album that reminds us what a great artist she was and how sorely she will be missed.

Product Overview

Wildwood Flower was designed as a follow-up to Press On, June Carter's GRAMMY®-Award winning 1999 CD that has recently been reissued. June recorded her new collection during an extraordinary burst of creativity earlier this year. The record contains her versions of nine classic songs by her kinfolk, Country Music Hall of Fame members the Carter Family, as well as her own songs, plus collaborations with her legendary husband Johnny Cash. As she was preparing for the release of Wildwood Flower, June Carter Cash died unexpectedly on May 15, 2003 after suffering complications from heart surgery.

" This record was very important to her," says her son John Carter Cash, who produced both Press On and Wildwood Flower. "She had a great heritage that she wanted to carry on, and she wanted to make an artistic, historical and musical statement. I think the inspiration was bound to rise in her again. So when she got offered this record deal, this album just naturally fell into place."
