iTunes Review

Trying to nail down Rosanne Cash to any one genre is a fool's game. But by including cuts from each step of her artistic journey, this collection lets you follow Cash's musical evolution phase by fascinating phase. From the start, she set out to show she was more than just her daddy Johnny's little girl, with everything from the smoldering, bluesy "Baby, Better Start Turnin' 'Em Down" to the worldly wise pop smarts of "Seven Year Ache." By the mid-'80s, she was delivering big, bold, elaborately produced pop-rock hits like "I Don't Know Why You Don't Want Me" and "Never Be You." But she never really lost touch with her roots—in 1987 she scored a smash with her take on Johnny's "Tennessee Flat Top Box." By the time Rosanne graduated to the intense, melancholy tunes of Interiors and the lush, lambent feel of The Wheel, she had nothing to prove to anyone. This anthology makes it obvious that her claim to her own corner of the Cash legacy is an undeniable one.

The only thing missing from the iTunes album is the booklet/liner notes that comes with the CD. I hope that's a feature that's added to this package soon.

Thanks, iTunes, for going through the hassle of negotiating w/ two major labels to offer us this long-awaited album.

The history of popular music is littered with the careers of the children of famous artists, performers who manage to carve out some small measure of success based far less on talent than on the recognition that their famous names afford them. Perhaps no greater exception to this trend was Rosanne Cash, the daughter of Johnny Cash, whose idiosyncratic and innovative music made her one of the preeminent singer/songwriters of her day. Born May 24, 1955, to her father and his first wife, Vivian Liberto,...
