Audiophile 180-gram vinyl reissue of Volume IV of Johnny Cash's American Recordings albums
"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.
The Man Comes Around is the fourth in a series of collaborations between Johnny Cash and producer Rick Rubin. The series began with 1994's critically-acclaimed American Recordings, followed by Unchained (1996) and American III: Solitary Man (2000). Each of these previous collaborations yielded Cash a Grammy Award.
American IV: The Man Comes Around features original Cash compositions as well as a diverse array of cover songs including Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt," Hank Williams' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," "Personal Jesus" from Depeche Mode and Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" featuring guest vocals by Fiona Apple.
