Info for Johnny 99

This is a reissue of a John R. 'Johnny' Cash album that came out on Columbia Records in 1983. Back then, country wasn't' considered cool, and easy-listening pop-country ruled the country charts. There was very little crossover between country, rock and folk--or was there? Long before 'alterna-country,' 'No Depression,' 'y'allternative' or roots-rock bands like Son Volt, Cash did this daring (for its time) album. Cash was a Classic Country Figure by this time, and so was taken for granted. A shame, for this great album was over-looked by the country, rock and folk crowds of the day.

Cash covers--wonderfully--two Bruce Springsteen tunes, 'Highway Patrolman' and 'Johnny 99,' as well as songs by Guy Clark ('New Cut Road') and Erik Von Schmidt ('Joshua Gone Barbados'). Producer Brian Ahern (then married to Emmylou Harris) keeps the back-up band lean & mean (featuring guitar master James Burton) and Cash's deep, stoic voice is as reassuringly real & honest as a forest of Redwoods. Highly recommended to Cash fans as well as those into the neo-country/roots-rock bands.
