So, Netflix has a new documentary out featuring the late, great Johnny Cash titled, Tricky Dick & the Man in Black (episode 2 of season 1 of the Remastered series, a Netflix original, or so they tell me). It’s well worth checking out, even for the casual JC fan. Featured in the doc is a very short mention of the commercially unsuccessful 1964 album, Bitter Tears – Ballads of the American Indian. If you watch the 59 minute episode, you can’t miss it. This copy found its way into the library by means of my grandfather, and like the doc, is well worth the time.
Now, There Was A Song! was Johnny Cash’s 9th studio album and was originally released in December of 1960. This is a reissue from an unknown year. It’s easy to spot these reissues as the blue-gray background was originally army green. Reissue or not, she’s a steal for $3.99!
With the screaming rooster, comes the rising sun, and along with it, majestic, Memphis sounds of early rock n’ roll. Sun LP 1270 happens to be an early Johnny Cash album, but that’s secondary to this nostalgic logo. Happy homesick Saturday, kids!
Walter Light says, enjoy the good things in life… be them Blue, fire, and / or solid JR Cash.
