June Carter Cash leaves a fitting legacy
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.
