180 Gram Vinyl Record
Audiophile 180-gram vinyl reissue of Volume V of Johnny Cash's American Recordings albums
Rick Rubin supervised cutting and pressed at QRP!
"In the early 90s, Johnny Cash signed to Rick Rubin's American label and began releasing the American Recordings series of albums. Produced by Rubin, the American Recordings were stark, stripped-down, mostly acoustic meditations on the more apocalyptic side of his persona. Cash covered Beck, Nick Cave, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Soundgarden, Danzig, and, of course, Nine Inch Nails' 'Hurt.' And he cemented his reputation as one of the reigning badasses in American music history — not that that rep really needed much help." — Pitchfork, January 2010
Longtime fan, label owner and producer Rick Rubin stepped in when Johnny Cash, in the early '90s, was without a label for the first time in four decades. Rubin asked Johnny to return to his roots and together, they recreated the legend of the Man In Black. Now presented in an awesome audiophile 180-gram LP format, plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings!
American V contains 12 tracks and includes one Johnny original, “Like The 309” (the last song that Johnny wrote and recorded).
