The 1980's were not kind to Johnny Cash, musically. One example: some quality material he recorded in 1981 and '84, with Waylon Jennings, June Carter Cash, Marty Stuart and others, that Columbia Records decided to shelve, perhaps because it just wasn't the sound they were looking for then. It sure sounds good these days though. What a refreshing surprise to hear these lost recordings finally seeing the light of day, courtesy of Legacy Recordings. It debuted last month at #3 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums charts, selling 54,000 copies its first week.
