Dear Johnny: A Tribute to Cash

Although I was never a huge fan of the music of Johnny Cash (although never really disliked it either, as I DO most country music), there's no debating he was a cool guy, covering Dylan back in the 60's and going as far as to cover Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden, among others later on......anyway, we just watched "Walk the Line" the other night (pretty good film) and I got to remembering I had this one buried in their somewhere....if I remember correctly I THINK it came out shortly after his death (2003? 2004?) and there are some interesting tracks on I've stated before I often dislike tribute albums because they so often include copies so slavish that they may as well not have bothered, and there is a bit of that here, but most of these bands at least TRY to put a personal touch on these tracks........give it a try and see what you think, I think it's a listenable experience.
