Welcoming thousands of new fans into the world of Johnny Cash, the American Recordings works are among the finest throughout a long career of the man in black. Where the old guard had turned their back on one of the greatest voices in country music, American Recordings welcomed him in 1994 and began, what could be considered to be, one of the greatest back to back series of country music albums released in the end of the century. Where late century country artists started looking to pop and hip hop to sell records, American Volume One is simply Johnny Cash and an acoustic sitting in a living room. We could spend all day discussing the work with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers on American Two and the endless supply of cover songs he reimagined. Let's face it, we all know that Hurt no longer belongs to Nine Inch Nails. That song now belongs to JC and is one of the few times where we can all agree that the cover song is clearly the preferred version. Same can be said for his version of Thirteen by Danzig. Two for two where he absolutely crushed our hearts and left the originals in the dust. Sadly, we could not include Volume Five in this tribute because it was unavailable. Rest in peace to one of the true legends of country music. John R. Cash (born J. R. Cash) February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003. File them all under Bobby's Essential Listening choices. Grab one of these in store at @collectiveclothing or on our web store at
