With his Presley-like mystique, a strapping baritone voice and songs with universal lunch bucket appeal, Johnny Cash reached one of many career high-water marks with his sprawling 1963 epic, Blood, Sweat And Tears. From the perspiration-drenched, eight-minute version of “The Legend Of John Henry’s Hammer” to “Busted,” Harlan Howard’s down ‘n’ out hard-luck story, Cash made everything he recorded sound like it had been written just for him. This exact replica of Cash’s 1963 classic shows Cash once again straddling the worlds of country, folk and pop like a black-clad behemoth: a once-in-a-generation artist whose revered work will live on forever.
