Cash, Johnny - Sings Hank Williams - New LP
"From the minute he walked into Sun Studios, Cash began a career that would see him become one of the biggest and most influential musicians of our time. Though only on Sun from 1955-58, Johnny made some of his most legendary recordings there. When he moved on to Columbia Records, Johnny left behind a large cache of material which Sun happily compiled and released on LPs throughout the 60s, mixing Cash's singles with previously unissued recordings. The resulting platters were a goldmine for fans eager to hear more from country's newest superstar. Released June 15, 1960, Johnny Cash Sings Hank Williams is not quite an accurate title. Only four of the album's twelve tracks are Hank Williams' songs with all but one of the remaining tracks composed by Cash. Whatever the title, this is a fantastic collection of early tracks from Sun, including Straight As in Love, Walk the Line and ?Folsom Prison Blues. Also included is the lean rocker Mean Eyed Cat, featuring hot rockabilly licks from Luther Perkins. A thrilling platter from start to finish! Cut by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio."
