Various Artists – Johnny’s Blues: A Tribute To Johnny Cash

This latest overview of one of country music’s finest portfolios includes a heap of blues players gathered together by Colin Linden for a stab at the dark side of Cash’s work. Mavis Staples breathes new life into “Will The Circle Be Unbroken”, while Garland Jeffreys makes an appearance for “I Walk The Line”. Others who merit a mention in dispatches are Maria Muldaur and Chris Thomas King of O Brother, Where Art Thou? fame. An easy-paced, respectful disc, it will send you back to the source with renewed interest.
