“From Sea To Shining Sea” by Johnny Cash - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1968Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

1968 was a big year for Cash, both as a man and an artist. It started in January with “From Sea To Shining Sea”, once again flirting between the folk and the country, often reverting back to the spoken word piece – which always seems that bit more enjoyable to me. “Cisco Clifton’s Filling Station” is a classic, “The Masterpiece” is enjoyable (as God songs go) and “The Flint Arrowhead” completely recalls the glorious “Bitter Tears” album. For the first time, all songs were straight from the pen of Cash himself. Those royalty cheques could be handy, what with wives and babies to support… A month after the release of this album Johnny proposed onstage to June at a concert at the London Gardens in London, Ontario on February 22, 1968; the couple married a week later (on March 1st) in Franklin, Kentucky. June had agreed to marry Cash after he had “cleaned up”… it was the best move of his life.
