Boomkat Product Review:
Johnny Cash passed away in 2003, but this is the sixteenth album released since his death and one of the most sought after for fans of one of America's great artists. Recorded in 1990 only years before his career would be revitalised by producer Rick Rubin on the now legendary American recordings, this captures a performance which saw Cash joined by the Carter family, June Carter and Lucy Clark as he played for an excitable New Jersey audience. It might be on the tail end of Cash's least popular period but he manages to pull out all the stops for what comes across as a heated and distinctly enjoyable performance, with plenty of the traditional banter in between tracks to break up the flow a little. Included here are renditions of stone-cold classics 'Folsom Prison Blues', 'I Walk the Line' but the highlights are his duets, especially the incredible 'What is Man' with honey-voiced gospel singer Lucy Clark. These one-off moments make this disc totally indispensable for Cash fans, and it's great to see Universal finally digging this one out of the vaults and giving it the cd issue it's always been crying out for. With Cash's popularity at the moment there should be no doubt this will reach a whole new audience who are likely only familiar with his stunning rendition of Nine Inch Nails' 'Hurt'. Classic.
