Johnny Cash, unearthed
The (final?) Johnny cash record has a street date and a track listing. A 79-song track listing. If my paychecks reach me by then, I won’t care.
Some possible highlights –
– “Pochohantas” – If this is the 1978 Neil Young song, it will rule without mercy. That was one of Neil’s chugging acoustic death ballads that was clay in his hands, and will be molded by Johnny’s.
– “Bird On A Wire (Live with orchestra)” – A LEONARD COHEN SONG WITH AN ORCHESTRA. No further commentary.
– “He Stopped Loving Her Today” – That’s right, the best damn country song ever written, as sung by Johnny Cash, who had just lost his wife. Expect glory.
– “I’ll Fly Away” – The roots classic popularized again by Allison Krauss in “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”
