Weekend Listening


I L-O-V-E Johnny Cash. I know he can be a bit polarizing in certain circles (kind of like Bob Dylan - people tend to love it or hate it. I tend to fall on the favorable side in either case). The recently released Bootleg, Volume 2: From Memphis to Hollywood is exactly how I like to hear the Man in Black - raw, gritty, and gripping. So many great songs that I find myself signing when I'm cleaning, cooking, or doing "everyman's" work - songs like "Get Rhythym" and "Big River." This album is great because it features so many forgotten Cash songs, while not being so obscure that the listener can't immediate be drawn to it. If you're in a foot-stompin' mood this weekend, definitely check it out!

I love Johnny Cash too!! We have a couple CD's. One that may be Live from Folsom Prison and a greatest hits. I don't typically like country, but he's much more than that.
Thanks for catching up on my blog, BTW! Great to hear from you!
