iTunes Review

Subtitled From Memphis to Hollywood, the second volume of the Johnny Cash bootleg series is a mind-blowing 57 tracks recorded between 1955 and 1969. It begins with Cash’s first radio performance with the Tennessee Two at KWEM in West Memphis and includes the radio introduction and closing, a couple of tunes, and Cash reading the sponsor’s advertisement. Then 12 previously unreleased demos follow, including the earliest-known version of Cash’s immortal “I Walk the Line.” Seven Sun Records rarities, including the previously unreleased “Wide Open Road” and “Leave That Junk Alone” show Cash was artistically complete before his legend left the station. Twenty-five recordings for Columbia Records from 1958-1969, featuring orphaned singles that never made an album, B-sides, and studio outtakes finish off this essential compilation. His cover of Bob Dylan’s “One Too Many Mornings,” his co-write with Johnny Horton for “Girl In Saskatoon,” the single “The Folk Singer” that was later covered by Nick Cave as “The Singer,” and a demo of his own “Hardin Wouldn’t Run” are among the essential highlights.

When I first watched his movie Walk The Line, I fell inlove with his music. And I'm a 15 year old , born in the period of time where , if you listen to country, your not 'cool' . Well screw people who go by that saying. I'm Mexican And I LOVE JOHNNY CASH!


Love cash

Great for Cash fans!!

To be honest this album is worth it just to hear Johnny do "I walk the Line" by himself. All Cash fans will enjoy hearing the demos and hopefully some new fans will be brought in after hearing some of this great work. A must buy for any Cash fan and for any music fans as well.

Johnny Cash was one of the most imposing and influential figures in post-World War II country music. With his deep, resonant baritone and spare percussive guitar, he had a basic, distinctive sound. Cash didn't sound like Nashville, nor did he sound like honky tonk or rock & roll. He created his own subgenre, falling halfway between the blunt emotional honesty of folk, the rebelliousness of rock & roll, and the world-weariness of country. Cash's career coincided with the birth of rock & roll, and...
