The Man In Black

Post  Lee Van Queef on Wed Aug 17, 2011 2:39 am

Lost a lot of music recently, a lot of which was by Johnny Cash. I had a few studio albums, but the vast majority of albums I had were compilations.

Which albums, in your opinion, are Johnny Cash's best album efforts?

Whichever ones you name, I'll get.

Definitely get "Orange Blossom Special," "I Walk The Line," and "At San Quentin."

If you still have more money, get "Folsom Prison Blues," "Bitter Tears," and "American Recordings I (1994)"

Get those pinhedz recommendations and look out out for a compilation of his Sun recordings (I Walk The Line includes some re-recordings of Sun material). All the Sun records are now out of UK copyright, so you could get some excellent cheap stuff (eg: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Walking-Line-Legendary-Sun-Recordings/dp/B000B9G6R6 - £4.99? They're avin a laff ent they? albino ).

Here's the man with The Tennessee Two in 1956:

Whilst we are here, who fancies discussing what Dylan said a few years back in an interview with Rolling Stone?

Dylan said he started missing Cash ”10 years before he actually kicked the bucket.”

He continued...

“I tell people if they are interested that they should listen to Johnny on his Sun records (of the 1950s) and reject all that notorious low-grade stuff he did in his later years. It can’t hold a candlelight to the frightening depth of the man that you hear on his early records. That’s the only way he should be remembered”.

Now, there is no doubting that Cash did some terrible albums (much like Mr Dylan), but Cash is celebrated for his "later years" albums. Do you think Dylan just simply doesn't like those 'American Recordings'? It's basically impossible for him not to know they exist. But at the same time, how could he be talking about those albums when he names them 'notorious low-grade stuff'?.... they are not notorious low-grade stuff.

I've heard quite a few of the American Recordings, some of which really are great. Sure, they can't compete with the Sun records stuff (IMO), but most of them seem pretty decent.

Also, for me, it's inconceivable for Dylan to be 'dissing' Cash. It's clear that he has the utmost of respect for him musically. He also seemed pretty fond of him as a person.

PS: One of my favourite youtube Dylan video's is when he covered 'Train of Love' (great song by the way) at a Cash tribute event. His opening remarks where very cool. Can't see the video on youtube at present (felix?!).

Sorry, I've made this a bit into a Dylan thread. But the comments he made are odd (if not out of character as I still have no idea about his character!).

I can't believe Bob used the phrase "kicked the bucket" when referring to the demise of Cash?

My favourite Cash album is the last one he made, The Man Comes Around.

Yah Boo Sucks Bob Neutral Neutral Neutral Neutral

Apparently he did. Crying or Very sad

The interview appeared in RS in 2009. I found a reuters blog about the interview. A savage henry commented wisely:

It must be remembered Grumpy Bob likes one thing today and dislikes the same tomorrow. The hidden subtext in his Johnny Cash commentary is the Man in Black didn’t record any Dylan tunes during his Rick Rubin years but sang songs by Danzig, Trent Reznor and Nick Lowe. Bob is probably nostalgic for the Cash of his youth; some of us miss the Dylan who made “Infidels”. Bob should try channeling some of his technoanger into his music and extract himself from this lonesome cowboy phase he’s mired himself in for the length of the 21st century. He’s a sly devil wrapping sentiment in barbed wire but it’s why we’re so drawn to Mean Old Bob.

Word, as some people puzzlingly say. tongue

It looks like the video posts have been zapped by SME (who dey?) but you can find the audio from the Kindred Spirits album here.
