Johnny Checks Out In Style,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Man Comes Around [Bonus Tracks] (Audio CD)
In what turned out to be the last of his American Recordings series, Johnny Cash once again stamped his authority on some familiar and not so familiar songs, revisited his back catalogue and layed down some new material. It's pretty clear he did not expect to make another album from the choice of songs here but it is far from all doom and gloom. He sounds old and frail on some of the tracks but nothing can stop his big heart, sense of humour and integrity from shining through.
My personal favourite on this album is Desperado, with Don Henly on backing vocals but there are many great moments. An amazing acheivement for a seventy year old but then John Ray Cash was an amazing man.
