Our Review

Johnny Cash stood out from his Sun Records labelmates by virtue of his seriousness – even in his pre-Man In Black days, there was a solemnity to his baritone and overall bearing that made Elvis and Jerry Lee seem like mischievous schoolboys. The brooding charisma of his early years is caught on His Hot And Blue Guitar (1957), a time capsule of a debut album that proves Cash was an eclectic artist from the start. He rocks convincingly on “Cry! Cry! Cry!” (his first hit single), grasps the essence of country blues on “I Heard That Lonesome Whistle” and gets into a folk groove on “Rock Island Line.” The spiritual fervor heard in “I Was There When It Happened” balances the rustic good spirits of “Country Boy.” Most memorably, Cash infuses “I Walk The Line” and “Folsom Prison Blues” with the passion and foreboding that became his trademark for nearly half a century. The Tennessee Two — especially guitarist Luther Perkins — provide taut, prodding backing. His Hot And Blue Guitar hints at the sufferings and triumphs Cash would experience in the decades ahead. These tracks are the foundations of an indisputably legendary career.

A Landmark Album Blurring Country from Rock 'n' Roll (5 stars)

Johnny Cash’s music serves strongly as a source of inspiration for this new breed. There are only a ha

A monument in time (5 stars)
JR had better albums later, but as Sun's first LP, this is a classic. The clickety-clack sound of the Tennessee Two back Cash in trademark fashion. JR was an original, a "blade of grass," and this was his beginning.

Classic (5 stars)

Biography

Born: February 26, 1932 in Kingsland, AR
Genre: Country
Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

Johnny Cash was one of the most imposing and influential figures in post-World War II country music. With his deep, resonant baritone and spare percussive guitar, he had a basic, distinctive sound. Cash didn't sound like Nashville, nor did he sound like honky tonk or rock & roll. He created his own subgenre, falling halfway between the blunt emotional honesty of folk, the rebelliousness of rock & roll, and the world-weariness of country. Cash's career coincided with the birth of rock &...
