When Johnny wasn't busy singing, he was layin' track.
Johnny Cash - Blood, Sweat and Tears. Released in 1963, this is a short and sweet (30 Min) collection of Cash covers of Workin' Man songs. It leads off with a highly entertaining 8 minute version of, "The Legend Of John Henry's Hammer" and this song alone is worth the price of admission. The Library has a few Cash CDs but they are mostly of the Greatest Hits variety. There's nothing wrong with Greatest Hits packages, but it's just cool to hear an actual Cash release. This is classic Cash; simple arrangements, June Carter harmonizing and Johnny's dead pan delivery.
Johnny Cash is GREAT!
