This all-time classic is an eclectic assemblage of songs and styles: three Bob Dylan tunes ( "It Ain't Me, Babe," "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright," and "Mama, You've Been on My Mind"), two by A.P. Carter of the Carter Family ("Wildwood Flower" and "Engine 143") plus "Long Black Veil," "The Wall," and the title song.

"Perhaps this should have been titled The Freewheelin' Johnny Cash in homage to the watershed Bob Dylan album. Though conservative country music and liberal folk shared little audience base at the time, Cash crossed that bridge by covering three Dylan tunes on this 1965 classic. Cash sounds loose and frisky throughout, as he romps from the harmonica-driven title song through the traditional country of 'Long Black Veil,' the Irish standard 'Danny Boy,' and the rousing spiritual 'Amen.' The stripped-down arrangements give the material plenty of room to breathe, with only the female backing chorus sounding dated. Dylan subsequently crossed this musical bridge from the other side, inviting Cash to duet with him on the country-tinged 'Nashville Skyline.'" — Amazon.com

Totally worth $30 if you’re a fan of this album, if for no other reason, the vinyl is dead quiet. (10 out of 10). Adjust your expectations a little, however, regarding the sound. I don’t have an original to compare this to, but I do have other Quality Record re-issues of this recording era that do sound a lot better. For instance, using the QR re-issue of the 1963 Beach boys album, “Surfer Girl” as a reference disc (10 out of 10), I give the re-issue of this 1964 Johnny Cash album about a 7.5 or an 8 (out of 10).
