“The Sound Of Johnny Cash” by Johnny Cash - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1962Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

Things look promising from the off; Johnny’s looking kinda mean, all in black, on the front cover. Opening salvo “A burnin’ hot sun a cryin’ for water, black wings circle the sky, stumblin’ and fallin’ somebody’s callin’ you’re lost on the desert to die” continues the promise lyrically. Unfortunately, it’s a bit anti-climactic from there, as your typical “boom-chicka-boom” Cash record reveals itself; nothing bad, but nothing special.
