Johnny Cash, “American Recordings”

I can’t remember why or exactly when I picked up this 2002 remaster/reissue of this 1994 release. The music seems live (you can hear the audience on at least one track), but the whole of the disc is just Cash and his guitar.

It’s fantastic.

This is by far my favorite album of his. Each song is deliciously stripped back and beautifully recorded.

Most highly recommended.
