REVIEW: Johnny Cash: American VI: Ain’t No Grave

Leave a comment

When we lost Johnny Cash we lost one of the greatest musicians ever and arguably the greatest country artist to live. While most of us thought the post-death American V album was going to be the last we heard from Johnny we were proven wrong. Apparently Johnny Cash is still a badass after death because he’s still able to put out another album. Like a lot of the American series there’s a lot of acoustic stuff, some covers and the grizzled older voice of Johnny Cash. Personally I think he sounded better as he got older, but this album you can hear him struggling in a few places, but that doesn’t take away from it at all. About the only thing I don’t like about this album is the cover, kinda creeps me out, but I’m weird. This album fits great in the collection of the other American Recording albums but this one isn’t as depressing as the previous one, for some reason it seems more uplifting. I for one am glad we got one more Cash album, people should know a good thing when they see it and scoop this one up.

1. Ain’t No Grave
2. Redemption Day
3. For the Good Times
4. I Corinthians 15:55
5. Can’t Help But Wonder Where I’m Bound
6. Satisfied Mind
7. I Don’t Hurt Anymore
8. Cool Water
9. Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream
10. Aloha Oe

Notable Releases/Bands: Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty, Howlin’ Wolf, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis
I don’t use the word legendary a lot, but when talking about Sun Records that’s the first word that comes to mind. They’ve had their hand in just about every good artist from the 50’s and are still around pushing out the good stuff. Founded by Sam Phillips in 1952 he gave a lot of these now famous musicians their first break, without Sun Records there wouldn’t be a Elvis Presley or a Johnny Cash as we know them today.

One more Johnny Cash album

Looks like Johnny Cash and Rick Rubin are teaming up one final time, this time however it is very unfortunately after the death of the great Johnny Cash. It appears that “American IV: Ain’t No Grave” is coming out February 26th. Features new songs and cover songs, so appears to be the same formula most of the American series has followed. I’m pretty excited and worried for this one. I’d love some more Johnny Cash but I hope it isn’t just some thrown together post-death album.
