Level of familiarity before listening
I’ve never listened to this compilation, but I’m a Johnny Cash fan and recognize a few of the songs on it.
What I expected
What it was actually like
This was great, and even though I anticipated being familiar with a lot of it, the only songs I knew well were Folsom Prison Blues and The Ways Of A Woman In Love. That one was unusual for having backing vocals, both male and female, though the entire record was in Cash’s unique and consistent style, sort of an acoustic rockabilly shuffle.
There were no bad songs at all and I would listen again any day, but if I had to pick two, Don’t Make Me Go was the most relatively boring and Down The Street To 301 was the most relatively corny.
5/5: love it
