"Who has Desecrated "MY" Delia?", I thought the first time that I heard this recording.
Only recently did I order this and after listening to this both yesterday and today did I come to the realization that it was not "MY" Delia but Cash's. He was always ready to change with the times, (Remember when he had Dylan on his television program in the 1960's?) and in this recording he has proven that change is indeed good.
Tracks two (02) and three (03) are both, dare I say brilliant.
It is hard to believe that this was recorded in a living room with just Cash and his guitar.
The thirteenth (13) track, "The Man Who Wouldn't Cry", was recorded at a place called Vipers before a live audience and Comes highly reccomended. Reminisant of his earlier recordings
Like his "Everybody Loves a Nut" Album, you can tell that he had to have enjoyed not only performing this number but had to have had a hell of a fun time composing it as well.
Now quit reading everyone else's opinion about this. Buy the damn thing and listen to it yourself. I look forward to reading your comments concerning this masterpiece in the near future.

For those who think that you've got to be borned with a beautiful voice or play skillful guitar to make it, Cash proves that you don't. All you need is expression and honesty in your performance, and the result will be an album like this.

Johnny Cash's three albums (so far!) for Rick Rubin's maverick record company deserve a massive tome dedicated to analyzing the significance of the man's achievement at this late a day in his career. Although Johnny Cash has almost always been a restless creative spirit that has continued to produce great work decade after decade, before this 1994 album hit music stores he was thought of as a has-been and irrelevant to a younger generation that had its own new, vital music by the likes of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Beck, REM, etc.
While later albums such as Water From The Wells Of Home as well as his immortal Sun singles & late 60's/early 70's material kept Cash from being completely forgotten, his star had dimmed considerably. Looking back, it is suprising that his American Recordings album wasn't initially derided as desperate. For someone of Johnny Cash's stature to cover Thirteen & rewrite the Blind Willie McTell classic 'Delia' to include a verse about automatic weapons is a very risky venture. Obviously, it paid off far better than anyone had a right to imagine.
The opening track, Delia's Gone, is one of two magnificent recent takes on the chestnut. One year earlier, Bob Dylan (not coincidentally, one of the handful of living artists in Cash's league) made it the defining track on his excellent World Gone Wrong cover album. But where his would not have sounded out of place on a Harry Smith anthology, Johnny Cash's is resolutely of the moment. It's a hard-worn performance, like Dylan's, but it goes one better by also being sidesplittingly funny. Where Dylan uses it to bemoan an impossibly screwed up universe, The Man In Black can't help but laugh at it all. And why not?

The other reviewers on this site have done a good job of delineating the contents of this cd, so I will just add my comments. I will begin by saying that I am not particularly fond of country music, but I greatly admire this disc. It has a cross-genre appeal that is primal in power.Moreover, it is just plain cool. Buy it today.

It was a completely unexpected move. In 1994, country music legend Johnny Cash agrees to cut an album produced by rap producer Rick Rubin for Rubin's American Recordings label. The result: The first of four priceless recordings that rival anything else from Cash's outstanding body of work.
The collection includes old songs, new songs, songs written by Cash, and songs written by others. Cash's music has always been marked by great storytelling and honesty, but this recording takes the Man in Black's storytelling and honesty to a whole other level. When you listen to "The Beast in Me," you hear the raw honesty in Cash's voice and you know that he's lived every word of Nick Lowe's lyrics. "Drive On" addresses one of Cash's most passionate topics: the trails and tribulations of Vietnam veterans returning home and the people who don't understand them. "Thirteen" is a dark, brutally exposed portrayal of a life gone wrong, one that has never been on track and never will be. Who else but Cash can convincingly sing the lyric "I pray you don't look at me/I pray I don't look back"?
It took a lot of courage for Cash to do this album. Think about it: Columbia Records had dropped him years before. Now here he was, making a recording not with his band, but with only his voice and his guitar. With one man and one guitar, there's not much you can hide. If the music is true and honest, it'll come through. If it's not, that'll come through too. But the result is true, naked, honest, courageous music. It doesn't get any better than this. Johnny Cash lays it all on the line like no one else ever has...and probably never will.
