Product Description


In 1994 Cash stunned the music world with this commanding collection of 13 solo acoustic performances that roll from gospel to cowboy to sarcastic folk. Minimalism had long been Cash's meal ticket, but this time around, producer Rick Rubin stripped it all away, recording the bulk of the record in Cash's cabin or his own living room (two cuts were captured live at the Viper Room in front of an emphatic audience). Cash offers five typically direct and vivid originals, but he also seizes control of songs by Kris Kristofferson, Nick Lowe, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, and Loudon Wainwright. Forty years after "Hey Porter," Cash delivers a pure, naked, and incredibly moving record that, dare we say, rivals the impact of his greatest achievements. --Marc Greilsamer

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and Beautiful March 2 2004
By Elvis
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Cash's Delia-not mine! Feb. 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This disc is essential Feb. 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars brings back old memories Jan. 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
My parents always listened to music by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Patsy Cline, David Allan Coe, and Waylon Jennings and when I hear their music it always brings back memories. Johnny's older songs like Boy Named Sue are my favorites because I grew up on them and now my kids know them by heart, but there are good songs on this CD too like Bird On A Wire and Why Me Lord. It isn't going to be the same without Johnny Cash, but we still have his music and now he's with June.

As you can tell by checking the other CDs I reviewed, I love hard edged Country. Cash's edge makes these cuts go deep.

5.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Cash unplugged Oct. 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
This 1994 album was Johnny Cash's "comeback" album. After spending the 80s producing some uneven albums, Cash signed with American Records and recorded a string of terrific albums. This was his first album for the label. Rick Rubin made the decision to have the album feature just Johnny singing and playing his guitar with no additional accompaniment. The result was probably the best Johnny Cash album since Johnny Cash at San Quentin. Cash sings songs from a wide variety of sources, and makes them his own. It's hard to single out any particular songs, because they are all so good. Just but the album, already.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Guitar and The Voice - What Else Do You Need? Sept. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.
