Album: Ain’t No Grave

Johnny Cash. American VI: Ain’t No Grave. American B0013954-02, 2010. (on CD)

Every single song is one of Cash’s best recordings. Nothing’s quite as strong as the best tracks from American V, but that’s a high standard to judge something against. The only problem is the length: only ten songs, at about 32 minutes total. Normally, I’d say that’s the ideal length for a record, and if it was just another album, I’d say it’s perfect.  But since these are the last recordings we’ll ever hear from Johnny Cash, it would certainly be nice to have a little more.

10/10 (Favorite of my favorites).
