Take the (Johnny) Cash

   This is usually the time of year when I feature some alternative country woman artist such as Neko Case, Kelly Willis, Lucinda Williams, or Gillian Welch (they've all been re-upped, by the way).  In order to fend off any potential charges of sexism, I've decided to feature a lil' ol' male country artist named Johnny Cash. :)  Basically, I stayed away (at least I think I did) from any cuts that appear on either his 3 cd greatest hits collection or the Love, God, Murder discs.   I could probably have made another 2-3 volumes, but if you decide that you need a lot more Cash, there's always the recent 63 cd box set with every Columbia album he ever released and 2 cds of rarities.

Thanks Ish. I was just watching "The Best Of The Johnny Cash Show' on DVD last night.I forgot that he had "Derek & the Dominoes" on the show. And the Joni Mitchell appearance was amazing. Thanks As Always.

Thanks man, I don't have a lot of these. I'm only halfway through disc 1, and they're all great. Johnny in German's a treat too!

I've never been a fan of variety shows, but I have heard the music on the Johnny Cash show was really good. I'll have to netflix at least couple of discs.

@Jerry Lee,

Quite welcome. It's pretty amazing how prolific the guy was. Granted, his stuff between the mid 70s and mid 80s suffers in comparison, but there's still some quality tracks even on those albums.
