Another triumph for the suppliers as the CD arrived early and was another back catalogue which was missing from my collection
It is another great CD on Johnny Cash in his prime featuring two little played songs which were covered by other artists they are Busted and
Roughneck. Another Man Done Gone where he duets with June Carter is outstanding and The Legend of John Henry's Hammer despite being
about 8 minutes long is well worth a listen.

This often overlooked gem from 1963 is one of a run of great recordings Cash made for Columbia in the early `60s. Here he draws his inspiration from the backbone of any country, the common working man. He uses his distinctive bass baritone to deliver a set of tales of those who built the country in a very committed performance.

With the musical backing of the Tennessee Two and the vocal backing of the Carter family, this is a richer, more textured sound than some of his previous Columbia releases. The trademark chick-a-boom sound is still much in evidence, but the Carter family add a rich palette to the sound, and this makes the record a great listen.

Using a set of covers and a couple of original songs, Cash tells us stories and legends. The first eight and a half minutes is a handsome rendition of `The Legend of John Henry's Hammer', in which we really get a sense of the dignity of the man, and his determination not to be beaten by a mechanised replacement or his cruel boss. It's the best version of the song I have heard by far, and is completely made by Cash's controlled and carefully nuanced evocative vocal.

This is a classic record, and a fine addition to Cash's discography. 5 stars. I cannot understand why it was not re-released in the 2002 set of Cash reissues from Sony, but it is worth looking out nonetheless.

HASH(0x99be1f68) out of 5 stars Call it 4.7 20 Nov. 2008
By Bryan Byrd - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I've been around this album for most of my life, so I'm sure that I'm biased when it comes to this review. I bought this re-issue quite some time back, probably about the time it first came out, and what a rush of feeling! I used to listen to it on vinyl with my dad as just a little tyke, and with Cash's stories as my guide, I would sit and imagine the lives he was singing about.

The high points on this album are 'John Henry's Hammer', and 'Casey Jones', each of which are worth the nice price advertised alone. No, not every song on this disc is a classic, but Cash brings to all of them his signiture style and swagger. If you don't have this album, and you are a fan of the early Johnny, then you can't go wrong here.

This is Cash when he still had the clout to do what he wanted to do, and not the shell he became before teaming up with Rick Rubin. He was riding high on his Sun success and had become a major name. I think this is what he enjoyed the most - telling stories with his songs. It shows in this collection. 'The Legend of John Henry's Hammer' proves it to me.

Of this time period, I'd only rate Now, There Was a Song! as a better album, and this one rates far above "Ride that Train", and Bitter Tears (Ballads of the American Indian), in my opinion.

This is another Johnny Cash album with a point. It is about us. If you work for a living one or more of these may be about you or someone you know. John again takes off the fluff and shiny stuff to let you get a glimpse of the real people. Yet it is different and about the ones we haven't talked about yet. You get to see the America we really don't talk about. Thanks John!
