Album Review

Fair or unfair, Tommy Cash was always destined to be compared to his brother Johnny Cash. That's a hell of a lot to live up to, but while Tommy doesn't have his sibling's track record, he is an excellent singer in his own right. The early 1990s found him on the small, Miami-based Playback label, for which he recorded his impressive though little-known The 25th Anniversary Album.

While serving in Germany during 1958, he DJed for Armed Services Radio -- perhaps contributing in some part to the incredible success of Johnny's hit of that year, "Ballad of a Teenage Queen."
