Not only did American Recordings spark Johnny Cash’s comeback, but it’s also one of the most raw, intense albums he ever made. In a stripped-down, acoustic setting, Cash’s rumbling, gravitas-laden baritone comes across like the voice of God, as he redefines tunes by everyone from Nick Lowe (“The Beast in Me”) to Leonard Cohen (“Bird on a Wire”). Whether he’s digging into arch satire (“The Man Who Couldn’t Cry”) or earnest spirituality (“Why Me Lord”), Cash makes every song sound like the 11th Commandment.
Pure Johnny & his guitar
The world changed when this "Man in Black" left us. Now he wears white and his music lives on. "American Recordings" allows us to hear Johnny and his guitar - how it should be. Although most of the songs are not well-known, Johnny makes them memorable. This is a have-to-have for any seasoned fan as well as someone who is new to this American Legend.
Sitting With Johnny
Listening to this album is like sitting with Mr Cash and his guitar, singing in the fire light of my living room -- and it's late at night, with a stirring feeling, together remembering solitary journies and reconnections to God. The older I get the more Mr Cash's voice and words echo with strong wisdom for me. Like alot of folks, just Cash and his guitar alone make it for me. Thank you, Johnny, for coming over and for these last solo recordings you left for us all.
An Honest Record...
The stripped down style of this record showed how much of that J.R was still left in his soul. An honest and deep voice accompanied by an acoustic guitar that makes you think in those lonesome times of your life... a record to think, enjoy, laugh and be lonely. A kind of truth is heard from Johnny's voice that very few had immerse within it... Just listen...
