American Albums VII?

/6 was arguably the most depressing album I've ever listened to
//"Ain't no grave" will be played at my funeral

Probably the 1st of many, Cash had no recording contract for a few years in the late 80s, I doubt he stopped recording.

Guess it's time for Johnny Cash's estate to get some money again.
 
2013-12-11 09:47:01 AM
Feat. Tupac, Elvis, and Biggie?
 
2013-12-11 09:58:52 AM
Yeah, there's a lot of throwaway Cash songs as it is. Can't imagine these are going to be great.
 
2013-12-11 10:39:59 AM
Surely Johnny Cash heard them?
 
2013-12-11 10:44:21 AM
I wonder if it has "Believe it or not, John-ny isn't at home"?
 
2013-12-11 10:50:00 AM
Just like Tupac

The vinyl release will include a limited-edition, full-color, 24-inch x 24-inch
poster featuring Linda Ronstadt going commando on the Johnny Cash Show.

somedude210: American Albums VII?


Nope.

Tom_Slick: Probably the 1st of many, Cash had no recording contract for a few years in the late 80s, I doubt he stopped recording.


This album is actually from the period between his last Columbia album and when they finally dropped him from the label.  There were about four years when he kept turning in albums and they kept turning them down.

Yes, I suspect there's more stuff from the early-mid 1980s.

Hurray! A gleam of happiness in my otherwise-painful day (grading student papers)!
 
2013-12-11 11:33:33 AM
Will it include a previously unheard recording of "give my love to rose"?

""We were so excited when we discovered this," he told  The AP. "We were like, 'My goodness, this is a beautiful record that nobody has ever heard' 'How much money do you think we can make off of these if we release them'."

It always bugs me when these musicians die and their family starts releasing this kind of stuff, did it ever occur to them that Johnny didn't release them for a reason?

Mr. Richard Smoker: Yeah, there's a lot of throwaway Cash songs as it is. Can't imagine these are going to be great.


I don't know. Out of all the old country singers with long careers, Johnny Cash has the highest percentage of good songs.

Weatherkiss: Guess it's time for Johnny Cash's estate to get some money again.


BOOM! There it is, the Boobies biatching about the estate raping Johnny's corpse. Because it's such a SIN for someone to want to make money, it's so SINFUL to want to sell something that the public hasn't heard yet for a nice profit! Better that the family keep it only for themselves, or better yet they should just set all the recordings on fire so no one can ever hear them! That would be the VIRTUOUS thing to do!

"Waaah, waaah, it's not what Johnny would want!" If he had wanted these recordings destroyed or kept private upon his death, he could easily have specified that in his will. But obviously he didn't specify that, so it's legal to sell them, so your biatching counts for JACK SQUAT. If you don't want to hear the recordings then don't buy them, you whiny little biatch.

And it's not just about Johnny Cash. It seems that whenever any artist's work is posthumously released there's always some chorus of biatches like you whining about corpse raping. So I guess whether it's Brian May or Christopher Tolkien, let all the heirs of an artist's work know that ye oughtn't dare to release their remaining work posthumously lest ye incur the wrath of almighty Farkistan.

2/10  No idea why you wasted such a solid troll in a thread with so few posts.
 
2013-12-11 01:55:48 PM
I am sure it will be better than most of what is now released as country music.

I'm sure it's better than what was released as "Country" music at the time.

Cash? I remember that guy.  Did he play "Country," or "Western?"

/baits thread and waits for a strike

//has box set of his recordings

Aye-yup.  Played bass with a bluegrass band in a redneck bar one time, and there was no chicken-wire screen between the stage and the audience.  I saw the merit in that after a fight broke out among some "patrons."

Nice of them to include that song NIN covered in the article there...

That would make it a no brainer...

I'm curious to hear it. There is a good chance the record company rejected these tracks for not being the  formulaic redneck bubblegum pop music that Nashville is so fond of.

SoupJohnB: Cash? I remember that guy.  Did he play "Country," or "Western?"


I know what you're thinking of, but it's actually a good question.  He started out playing rockabilly at Sun Records, then moved onto Country, and  Folk when he fell in with the Carter Family, who came from way back up in the woods and knew folk songs older than this nation.

I don't think he ever did much Western music, which is swing stuff like Bob Willis, almost Big Band.  Willie Nelson did good Western stuff in the 1970s, songs like "Whiskey River".

Got bored out of my mind playing in a redneck bar one night. Covered 'Lola' by the Kinks. Hilarity ensued.

Somewhere I have a reel to reel of Johnny performing at a High School in Nashville doing a Kris Kristofferson song. I saw Cash perform a few times as a kid.

God may punish you for that, but probably not.  For this particular gig, we had a cover of Steve Earle's "Dixieland" in the set list.  (Marching with Col. Joshua Chamberlain. etc.)  While screwing around in rehearsals, I had suggested that we toss in a few bars of "Dixie."  We pulled that one out after the bodies and bar stools stopped flying around, and may have guaranteed a safe exit from the premises, in doing so.  ;-)

Was playing in a country band called Stark Nekkid and the Car Thieves .... pretty sure God was already punishing me...

The dart lane in this joint was parallel to the stage..... the second set was always a treat...

Shut up and take my money.

/don't care if it's a money grab, I'm looking forward to it.
//Also need to get "The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams" by Nora Jones
 
2013-12-11 11:59:53 PM
Or even Norah Jones....
