Anniversary album: AMERICAN IV: THE MAN COMES AROUND
Released: 5 November 2022 – 20 years ago today. The final one
he recorded. Less than a year later he passed away.
The Guardian (British newspaper: “At 70, Johnny Cash is still defiant and still
making country music with a rock’n’roll attitude. He is Robert Mitchum with an
acoustic guitar. His recent ill health has merely given his odes to unrepentant
bad boys a stinging resonance.” Score: 4/5.
TUTV: Cash assembled a cast of big name artists, such as Nick Cae, Don Henley (Eagles), Fiona Apple, Billy Preston and more. Rick Rubin was the producer. Most of the songs were covers turned by Cash into poignant Cash songs, like Depeche Mode’s Personal Jesus, NIN’s ‘Hurt Paul Simon and Art Garfunkels’Bridge Over Troubled Water’. The man in black cames around once more and left us with this astounding record and a sublime musical legacy. R.I.P
