Anyway - here's a weird tune..
His American Recordings series were brilliant.
Maybe getting back to its folk roots and paring back to his voice. But yeah, very good.Absolutey - hooking up with Rick Rubin at that late stage of his life was a perfect homage to his entire career. Not just the production values (which are truly sublime) but also Rubin's influencing Cash to try out songs that in their original forms were a million miles away from the traditional country and western styles he reveled in. As self-soliloquys go, Cash finished his career off in godlike style.
These are timeless pieces that will continue to draw in new listeners as the decades pass.
American Recordings is Cash's answer back to Elvis's American Trilogy - and as final nails in coffins go - both artists went out in fine musical style.
