Look Again To The Wind: Johhny Cash’s Bitter Tears revisited – Various Artists – His 1965 concept album in support of the Native Americans (again, in 1965 -before “Bury My Heart At Wounded Hill”) is giving some fine performances by the Milk carton Kids along with folks like Emmylou, Earle, Kristoffersson and I for one didn’t know the original but love this folk album very much – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – B+
So what happened in this strange case? The deep brain stimulation may have altered musical preferences but scientists are not sure how. It is possible that Cash was the first song Mr. B
Poverty among rural farm families was the norm in that era and as you drive down the rough dirt road where Cash lived, you can easily imagine long walks into town on humid summer days – surrounded by nothing but dirt, cotton, and endless blue skies
This isn’t even a popularity contest. Book ended by two perennials, the 8 in the middle will be gone by next week. So let me take a moment to mention how much I enjoy MCR greatest hits? Alright? On to next week.
But in the end, it really is a consistently pretty good album. It doesn’t sound like there has ever been a time when it would be a huge hit but it also isn’t a drunken mess, it is a real thing.
Baby Ride Easy – Johnny And Jane Carter Cash – So now we know where Dave Edmunds and Carlene Carter heard it, Johnny and June covering the song for one Billy Sherrill back in the 80s. Not bad, and the fiddle break is more than that, but Dave and Carlene jumped for joy all the way through their version – B+
I am excited for the new Hold Steady and always to hear from Barry Manilow. From what I’ve heard of Shakira I can’t claim to be thrilled at the concept of her newbie but I could be wrong. Yokyo Police Club? Sure, let’s rock. And to top it off Grieves all important sophomore effort and a great lost Johnny Cash album.
The original version of ‘She Used To Love Me A Lot”, chock full of slide guitar and pluckin’, with a two step sawdust floor back beat. Not a bad thing- it fits just right- but with the help of Mr Costello, this ’80s rarity gets the thump and momentum of a 2014 anthem.
It’s all well and good that Cash was admired by Bob Dylan and Tom Petty and Bono and various rock critics and was a peer of Elvis and Jerry Lee and Carl Perkins. However, it’s somewhat mystifying that Hilburn would rely on third party quotes and recognition instead of trying to define the gravitas of Cash in his own voice.
