Johnny Cash - Out Among The Stars

Biography

Beginning his career as an outlaw to the Nashville establishment, Johnny Cash has come to define country music over the last 40 years. At first, his unique mix of hillbilly music with gospel and blues made him a perfect fit at Sam Phillips' Sun records, where he recorded such classics as "Folsom Prison Blues" and "I Walk The Line." From there, Johnny signed with ... Read more in Amazon's Johnny Cash Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The recordings Johnny Cash started making for Rick Rubin's American label in 1993 launched a journey through the Great American Songbook--from traditional tunes to alt-rock--that continued until, literally, the end of his life. What wasn't known at the time was that Cash had anticipated the American Recordings concept 20 years earlier. A series of informal private sessions he recorded in 1973 featuring just voice and guitar--with a few numbers added between then and 1982--were left untouched at his House of Cash studio, unearthed only after his death in 2003. These 49 songs, labeled "Personal File," show him exploring 19th-century parlor tunes, Tin Pan Alley pop, gospel, little-known Cash originals, classic and contemporary country, and even a recitation of Robert Service's poem "The Cremation of Sam McGee." On many, his spoken introductions reveal personal ties to a given number. Cash reprises early country fare like Jimmie Rodgers's "My Mother Was a Lady" and "The Letter Edged in Black." He also revisits later country classics like the Louvin Brothers' "When I Stop Dreaming," close friend Johnny Horton's hit "When It's Springtime in Alaska (It's Forty Below)," John Prine's "Paradise," and stepdaughter Carlene Carter's "It Takes One to Know Me." The second disc is a virtual hymnbook, blending traditional gospel and A.P. Carter tunes with a sacred composition by Rodney Crowell and Cash gospel originals. For those enchanted by the illness-ravaged soulfulness of Cash's later American recordings, hearing him in his prime is not only breathtaking--it underscores the depth of his still-remarkable musical vision. --Rich Kienzle

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential 6 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
Indeed this is a superb double cd. It's just Johnny and an acoustic guitar mainly recorded in the Summer of '73 when JC was 41 years old. It is even better (although quite similar) to the American recordings from the 90's. The songs are very old but JC's voice is better than it was when he reached his 60's which is quite understandable. Johnny also does quite a bit of narration which adds flavour to the album and the packaging is first rate. I only hope there is lots more to come out of that House of Cash vault.

5.0 out of 5 stars Treasure Trove 27 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
This double album is an essential purchase for any Cash fan. The tracks were recorded privately in the early seventies and John's voice never sounded better. The first CD is a gift to any fan who has ever thought "I wish he'd recorded that!" and the second CD gets more and more interesting on each play. The price and excellent packaging are additional reasons for buying; "American V" is great but this is even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cash Lives 5 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
For all the people who saw Cash live this is a must, I remember the times when he sat on a stoll or amplifier alone with his guitar & picked out a tune from his childhood & narrated a story around this particular song. At these moments his talking voice was hypnotic & you felt as though you were sitting alone at his feet. With the great man in great voice you'll not be dis-appointed. Hopefully for tose who never saw him this will give you an insight into his magical personality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Cash is in your room now... 6 Sep 2007
By Charlie
Format:Audio CD
..if you have this double album!
That's the impression when playing this cd's. His acoustic guitar and famous voice,and that's all it takes. He's singing some rare favorites recorded in 1970's and talking to you between songs,explaining them, tellin' stories, just like if you have just bumped into his house.
Maybe it's not for average , causual fan but more for completist.
Similar to Grammy awareded 'American Recordings' CD, but more concentrated on gospel material & old country songs.

This is beautifully designed package, with cristal clear sound and with it's informal concept it brings Johnny Cash right in your room.
