The comprehensive remastering and repackaging upgrade of the Man In Black's legendary Sun catalogue continues with the release of Johnny Cash's fourth album for Sun Records, Johnny Cash Sings Hank Williams.
If there was one man who could fill the void left in the hearts of music lovers by the untimely death of Hank Williams, it was Johnny Cash. A singer who had the same type of appeal Williams had; audiences liked not only his singing and playing - they liked him as a person. It was appropriate that Cash kept alive the music and memory of Williams through this album from 1960 and the numbers recorded here are representative of the best of Hank Williams as a songwriter and Johnny Cash as an artist. Included in the album are some of "Johnny's million sellers" with the added element of the popular Gene Lowery Singers.
Complete with sleeve notes by Sun Records authority Adam Komorowski and president of Sun Entertainment Corporation John Singleton, this LP has been remastered from the original Sun master tapes by Nick Robbins at Soundmastering Studios and cut to lacquers at half-speed for unrivalled sound quality by Barry Grint at Alchemy Mastering in London. Original MONO mix.
The Johnny Cash reissue series has been personally overseen by Singleton in Nashville and Charly Records founder Jean-Luc Young, continuing the long relationship between the companies begun by Shelby Singleton and Young almost 50 years ago.
The first 1000 copies are pressed on heavyweight SUNSET ORANGE vinyl.
