Johnny Cash I Walk The Line on Colored 180g LP
Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios & Capitol Mastering / Pressed at RTI
Although he began his career as an outlaw to the Nashville establishment, Johnny Cash has come to literally define and embody country music. At first, his unique mix of hillbilly music with gospel and blues made him a perfect fit at Sam Phillips' Sun Records, where he recorded such classics as "Folsom Prison Blues" and "I Walk The Line."
From there, Johnny signed with Columbia records and embarked on one of the most remarkable musical careers of the twentieth century. Transforming into The Man In Black, Johnny spent more than thirty years reinventing and contradicting himself - breaking all of the rules of traditional country music only to emerge as the ultimate mythic hero and archetype of the genre.
No other artist has touched the world of music quite like Johnny Cash. He is the only person to be inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame, The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and The Songwriter's Hall Of Fame. His very name is synonymous with the fight for the rights of the poor and downtrodden and the image of The Man In Black is as deeply American as the stars and stripes themselves.
Produced by the great Don Law with Frank Jones, on 1964's I Walk the Line Cash offers up a handful of heartfelt renditions of earlier hits like "Folsom Prison Blues," "Give My Love to Rose," "Hey Porter," "Wreck of the Old '97," "Big River" and the title cut plus several new originals like the Top 10 charters "Bad News" and "Understand Your Man." It resulted in yet another Billboard Country Albums No. 1 and another essential selection in Johnny's timeless catalog.
