    Priceless Cash!

    Posted
    Galadrielle

    After having seen the movie Walk the Line, which tells Johnny Cash's story, I was inspired to purchase this album, in which we hear Cash and his beloved June sing many of the classic songs heard in the film - and many more! This lively invigorating music makes me want to get up and dance - in fact, every time I hear it, I do so! Yet often we feel the sorrow in Cash's voice as he reminds us of the pain and suffering in the world, which is why he began wearing his trademark black clothes in the first place - and set a precedent for others! In his own words "I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down . . . But 'til we start to make a move to make things right, you'll never see me in a suit of white/ I'd love to wear a rainbow every day. . ." I doubt that he ever did onstage - and I think his choice of color foreshadows the whole Gothic movement. More important, I believe Cash was one of the first rock stars, through his powerfully melancholy lyrics, to confront us with the shocking truth of the suffering in the world. Cash is one of those magnificent rock lyricist who makes the listener take pause and think, even as they revel in the sheer pleasure of the melodies. Yet this album contains some spicy little ditties such as "Jackson" in which his wife June Carter joins in, that make us appreciate life - and love - more than ever before. After hearing Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon (as Cash and June Carter Cash) sing this duet in "Walk the Line," the real thing is all the more joyful, and those of us who have seen the movie may not be able to stop smiling and feeling great! The Legend of Cash is truly a magnificent introduction to the works of one of Rock 'n' Roll's first and greatest legends!

    Johnny Cash Fans Rejoice

    The history of Johnny Cash is both tragic and inspiring, the story of a depression-era farm-boy growing up to become one of the best country singers of all time is a real American tale. Enjoy classics from Cash's early years all the way up to the last album he made, only for fans of classic country and Cash's deep voice though.

    History...

    I grew up on his music in the backseat of my dad's car on long family trips. It touches my soul and brings back fond childhood memories to hear all of the Man In Black's songs on one CD. Enjoy!

    Made the purchase because of the Soundgarden and nine inch nails covers. The rest is a good selection of his catalog. The nine inch nails cover could be better than the original. You can feel the pain in his voice.
