Johnny Cash - American Recordings

Posted on Sunday, September 26, 2010

Here’s a review I’m sure you didn’t expect to see in this zine. But here’s the deal: Nearly all of the songs on this album are pretty cool, and some are amazing. My favorite is Cash’s cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Bird on a Wire.” By the way, this is almost totally not a Country album. Generally these songs are more Folk, with an occasional nod to Country at most. Cash has a very powerful and haunting voice, and puts it to amazing use here. Many of these tracks were written for him (including one by Danzig) or are covers, but the ones he wrote are among the coolest. Don’t miss hearing this.
