Not to everyones taste; but what music is? But this is a great price for two Johnny Cash albums on one CD.
This 2 on 1 compilation brings together Johnny Cash's first two Nashville albums, 'Johnny Cash is Coming To Town' which features his cover versions of Elvis Costello's 'The Big Light' and his 1988 album 'Water From The Wells of Home' which features a stellar cast including Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, Rosanne Cash and Paul McCartney who co-wrote, co-produced and performed on 'New Moon Over Jamaica'.
Although his Mercury Nashville period is not seen as his most wonderful, it is full of overlooked gems, with a fascinating selection of cover versions and straight re-records of his greatest hits. Like a missing piece from a jigsaw, it represents the transitional phase from the household-familiarity of his Columbia recordings to the dark, intimate and lasting Rick Rubin-produced American recordings
