Johnny Cash

With His Hot And Blue Guitar

    'Johnny Cash With His Hot and Blue Guitar' was the first-ever Sun album to be released on the label in October 1957. It included one side of Cash's debut hit single, 'Cry! Cry! Cry!', the classic follow-up 'Folsom Prison Blues' and the iconic 'I Walk the Line' which reached no. 1 in the US country charts and crossed over to the pop charts peaking at no. 17.

    Complete with sleeve notes by noted Sun Records authority Adam Komorowski and president of Sun Entertainment Corporation John Singleton, the LP has been remastered from the original Sun master tapes by Nick Robbins at Soundmastering Studios and cut to lacquers at half-speed for unrivalled sound quality by Barry Grint at Alchemy Mastering in London.

    The reissue series has been personally overseen by Singleton in Nashville and Charly Records founder Jean-Luc Young, continuing the long relationship between the companies begun by Shelby Singleton and Young over 40 years ago.

    American II: Unchained - Back To Black Edition

      This second release in the American Recordings series saw Cash collaborate with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Once again the album featured self penned songs alongside covers, but this time he covered some more contemporary artists too, including Soundgarden and Beck.

      Johnny Cash & Jerry Lee Lewis

      Sunday Down South

        Once again, Johnny Cash teams up with Jerry Lee Lewis to deliver a powerpacked, one-of-a-kind package. This time out, the legends delve into their gospel roots and come up with a set that burns as brightly as the star of Bethlehem.

        With Sunday Down South, Lewis and Cash revisit the great standards, such as “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” and “Give Me That Old Time Religion,” as well as interpreting the New Orleans favorite “When the Saints Go Marching In.” While the songs are not all traditional gospel favorites, the blend of folksy Sundayafternoon- drive music makes for a winning package.

          Johnny Cash

          At Folsom Prison

            "Johnny Cash At Folsom Prison" fully captures Cash's gritty intensity and hard-headed humanity, capturing a high-energy set performed for an equally spirited audience. With a set list tailored for the occasion, Cash focuses on songs dealing with crime and imprisonment, balancing dark subject matter with wry, playful humor. The album opens, appropriately enough, with the venerable "Folsom Prison Blues," and continues with such outlaw anthems as "Cocaine Blues," "25 Minutes to Go, "The Wall" and "I Got Stripes," alongside such Cash classics as "I Still Miss Someone," "Orange Blossom Special" and "Jackson," with the latter track featuring Cash's wife and frequent duet partner June Carter. The album closes on an inspirational note with "Greystone Chapel," a song written by convict Glen Shirley, which Cash and his band learned especially for this show.

            At San Quentin - 180 Gram Legacy Vinyl Edition

              Perhaps even more so than its predecessor, "Johnny Cash At San Quentin" captures Cash at his most raw and uninhibited. The artist's raucous rapport with his captive audience is obvious on an inspired mix of Cash classics ("I Walk the Line," "Folsom Prison Blues"), jailhouse ballads ("Starkville City Jail," "San Quentin"), traditional tunes ("Wreck of the Old 97," "There'll Be Peace in the Valley") and well-chosen covers (Bob Dylan's "Wanted Man," the Lovin' Spoonful's "Darling Companion"). The album's most popular track, though, remains the Shel Silverstein-penned novelty number "A Boy Named Sue," which became the biggest hit single of Cash's career.

              American III: Solitary Man - Back To Black Edition

                Arguably the best of the American Recordings series.
                Once again Cash worked with Tom Petty on a couple of tracks including the Neil Diamond-penned "Solitary Man".
                The album also includes stunning covers of Bonnie Prince Billy, Nick Cave and U2.

                STAFF COMMENTS

                Laura says: The Rick Rubin produced American Recordings totally rejuvenated Cash's career, and they're all great. This one just edges it for me with amazing covers of Bonnie Prince Billy, Nick Cave and (suprisingly) U2.

                American VI: Ain't No Grave - Back To Black Edition

                  Originally released in 2010 to mark what would have been Johnny Cash's 78th birthday, this album compiled by Rick Rubin, features songs recorded during the same sessions as 'American V', shortly before Johnny's death.
                  The songs this time around are rooted in the gospel roots of his childhood and it's a deeply moving, spiritual album.

                  American V: A Hundred Highways - Back To Black Edition

                    The vocals for these tracks were recorded in 2002 and 2003, before Johnny's death on 12 September 2003 at the grand old age of 71. Rick Rubin, who had worked with him on all the previous American Recordings added overdubs later, to complete the recording.
                    By the time of this recording Cash was in poor health and suffered the loss of his wife June in May 2003. He visits familiar themes: Love, Life, Death and God and they seem somehow much more poignant this time around.
                    As you'd expect from The Man In Black, he bowed out in style.

                    Johnny Cash

                    American Recordings - Back To Black Edition

                      Originally released on Rick Rubin's American Recordings label in 1994, this album marked a welcome return for the country music legend and gained him a whole new generation of fans.

                      The album, which combines Cash originals along with covers of classic country and folk standards, was recorded at his Tennessee cabin by Rick Rubin. The stripped back nature of the the recording, just him and his acoustic guitar, demonstrates perfectly the range and emotion in Cash's voice.
                      A stunning album.

                        American V: A Hundred Highways

                        In the months leading up to his passing on September 12, 2003, Johnny Cash had been recording new material with producer Rick Rubin. "American V: A Hundred Highways", is the result from those sessions including the last song Cash ever wrote, "Like the 309". Rick Rubin sums up the album, 'these songs are Johnny's final statement. They are the truest reflection of the music that was central to his life at the time. This is the music that Johnny wanted us to hear.' - Rick Rubin

                        American IV - The Man Comes Around

                        Yet another awesome album from The Man In Black. He's always done his own thing, regardless of what the country music establishment, record companies, or the media have thought of his work, whether it be an album of gospel songs, or mainstream pop hits. He's never been afraid to experiment and take risks, and now even at the age of 80, he's doing so, more than any of his contemporaries would ever dare. As with the previous three albums in the American Recordings series, this album includes his own songs, versions of old standards, and (often surprising) cover versions, including Jimmy Webb, The Beatles, Paul Simon, Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails. Once again he has also collected together a fine group of musicians to work with. On his cover of Hank Williams "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" he duets with Nick Cave, possibly the only person who's vocal delivery is anywhere near as dark and powerful as his own. I must admit I'm not too keen on the family sing-a-long version of "We'll Meet Again", but other than that, I can't fault it. Raw, atmospheric, excellent!
