Synopsis

Amazon.com
This 1963 release is not a greatest-hits package, as the subtitle would have you believe, although the title cut did top the country charts. Instead, it offers a worthy sampling of Cash's far-ranging moods--dramatic saga songs, gospel hymns, love songs, honky-tonk weepers, folk ballads. The steady Tennessee Two churn forms the musical foundation, but is at times embellished by everything from banjo to mariachi horns to string section to background chorus to the Carter Family. Cash's august vocal tone and torpid phrasing command attention regardless of song or surroundings. --Marc Greilsamer

CD Reviews

A young Johnny Cash
William Dakota | Lima, Ohio | 07/13/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album contains the theme song from THE REBEL played by actor Nick Adams. I had the pleasure of working for Nick and had a hard time getting or finding this song anywhere. Well, I now have it and love this album by Johnny. It's hard to find and indeed a collectible. I purchased it on Amazon too."
