Johnny Cash - Ultimate Gospel
Gospel was what Johnny Cash, Luther Perkins, and Marshall Grant originally wanted to record when they auditioned for Sam Phillips in 1954. In 1958, Sun Records' refusal to let Cash record a gospel album--despite his track record of hits--led him to leave for Columbia. This well-chosen package of 24 songs delineates sacred music's ongoing role in Cash's career, beginning with two 1970 performances from his ABC variety show, one featuring longtime Cash friend Rev. Billy Graham. The 1957 Sun tunes include the searing "I Was There When It Happened" and Cash's original "Belshazzar." "He Turned the Water into Wine," "In the Sweet Bye and Bye," "That's Enough," and his 1969 gospel hit "Daddy Sang Bass," all from Columbia, are particularly passionate, as is "Far Side Banks of Jordan" (a duet with June Carter Cash) and three never-before-issued performances, 1974's "My Ship Will Sail" and "How Great Thou Art and "It Is No Secret" from 1981. Given that one can't truly understand Cash without knowing his gospel side, this is a fine introductionPrice $19.95
The Greatest - Gospel Songs
If not for gospel music, there never would have been a Johnny Cash. From his upbringing in Arkansas and throughout his entire life Cash always had a passion for spiritual music. His journey began at the First Baptist Church in his hometown of Dyess, Arkansas; he first auditioned at Sun Records with dreams of becoming a gospel artist; and throughout his career, Cash never lost site of his calling to gospel. The Greatest: Gospel Songs collects the best of Johnny Cash's captivating and deeply personal gospel recordings.Price $18.95
Hymns By Johnny Cash [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED]
No country artist this side of Hank Williams strikes a better balance between secular temptation and spiritual redemption than Johnny Cash. While Hymns (originally released in 1959) is an album-length testament of faith, it features the characteristics of Cash's classic country--the conversational phrasing and plainspoken conviction, the craggy baritone that sounds like it was carved from Mount Rushmore, the stripped-down arrangements, and the steady lope of Luther Perkins's guitar. Many of the highlights are Cash originals, from the propulsive "It Was Jesus" to the stately "Lead Me Father" to the call-and-response of "He'll Be a Friend." A stirring "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" finds Cash putting his signature on the traditional hymnal as well. Throughout, there's a musical spirit of sharing rather than preaching.Price $15.95
