Synopsis

Album Description
Japanese remastered pressing includes 4 bonus tracks. Ride This Train took Cash's conceptual explorations into previously unimagined realms. A full-blown concept album featuring sound effects and lengthy narratives would never have happened on Sun founder Sam Philips's watch, but the newly unfettered Cash reveled in the opportunity to make this striking, distinctive record. The album was billed as a "travelogue of America," and Cash neatly combines his passions for American history, storytelling, and the magic of trains to present portraits of the country he loved. Each track on the album begins with Cash delivering a monologue over train sounds, taking the roles of characters from different walks and eras of American life, followed by a song further illustrating the tale. CBS. 2006.

"The album was delivered in record time. It is exactly fathful to the original whih I have on vynal but in poor condition I think this was the first album wit naration by Johnny Cash I am not sure though because "Ballads of the True West" came out about the same time If you liked that one you will like this one too"
If you can find it, get it.

"This is one of the hard-to-find actual studio albums of JC, buried among the Greatest Hits collections. It's a real treasure though - but you'll have to get used to the concept of a travelogue. Each song is preceded by a narrated introduction which today would sound corny, but on this album it doesn't. The songs are haunting and beautiful. No hits on this one - which makes it better for hard core fans who've heard Ring of Fire enough already."
