Alphabet Beats #016: The Letter C is for...Johnny Cash

C is for...

Live At The Manhattan Center 1994

The American Recordings produced by Rick Rubin contain some of the best work by Johnny Cash for years and they opened up his audience to more than just the Country crowd.

Luke Torn, of Uncut Magazine, said this: 

"Johnny Cash was, and remains, the Mighty Oak of 20th Century popular music: singer, songwriter, collector, seeker, provocateur, folklorist, storyteller, historian, family man, outlaw, moralist, drug addict, TV and movie star, joker, preacher, philanthropist, spokesman for the downtrodden,, musical bridge from the Carter Family to Nine Inch Nails...visionary. His high presence touched us all, even if some of us are only dimly aware of it."

The Links are taken from the studio albums and live in concert.
