The comprehensive remastering and repackaging upgrade of the Man In Black’s legendary Sun catalogue continues with the release of Johnny Cash’s fourth album for Sun Records. If there was one man who could fill the void left in the hearts of music lovers by the untimely death of Hank Williams, he was Johnny Cash. Cash was a singer who had the same type of appeal which Williams did; audiences liked not only his singing and playing - they liked him as a person. It is very appropriate that Cash kept alive the music and memory of Hank through this album from 1960, and the numbers recorded here are representative of the best of Hank Williams as a songwriter and Johnny Cash as an artist.
Included in the album are some of "Johnny's million sellers" - the choice records that are most in demand by collectors of Cash records, and the popular Gene Lowery Singers provide an added element on several of the selections. The sensitive treatment of these well-known songs by one of the States' most loved performers saw this album reach #6 in the Country charts.
Complete with sleeve notes by noted Sun Records authority Adam Komorowski and president of Sun Entertainment Corporation John Singleton, this LP has been remastered from the original Sun master tapes by Nick Robbins at Soundmastering Studios and cut to lacquers at half-speed for unrivalled sound quality by Barry Grint at Alchemy Mastering in London.
The Johnny Cash reissue series has been personally overseen by Singleton in Nashville and Charly Records founder Jean-Luc Young, continuing the long relationship between the companies begun by Shelby Singleton and Young over 40 years ago.
“We applaud and congratulate Charly Records for ensuring Johnny Cash’s legendary Sun catalogue continues to be available on the quality formats his music deserves, especially on newly remastered vinyl for the seven LPs that were originally released by Sun Records in the late fifties and early sixties.” John Singleton (Sun Entertainment Corporation)
“Charly Records have outdone themselves with this current Cash refresh. From first reveal of the meticulously reproduced physical product to that needle-on-wax moment, it’s clear that the team behind the magic here know their onions. It’s a series that’s destined to enthrall any recent arrivals to Cash’s oaky tones and add extra sonic dimensions for the diehards, while giving audiophiles a timely fix.” Long Live Vinyl
