Another one of the greatest mid 60s Columbia albums by Cash, with a proper CD release! Orange Blossom Special is probably the most successful of Johnny's LPs in which he balances the profound influence of Bob Dylan with his own rough hewn style for something wholly unique. Cash covers 3 of Dylan's tunes on Orange Blossom, "It Ain't Me Babe", "Mama, You've Been On My Mind", and "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright". Other tracks include "You Wild Colorado", "When It's Springtime In Alaska", "Amen", and "Danny Boy". This remastered set includes 3 bonus tracks that were never issued in the US, but can (and should!) also be found on Bear Family's amazing Man In Black: 1963-1969 box set. Those include "Engine 143", "(I'm Proud) The Baby Is Mine", and another version of "Mama, You've Been On My Mind", this one featuring Mariachi horns in the tradition of "Ring Of Fire".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Bear Family (Germany), Early 50s. New Copy 2CD
Boy, were we happy to see this one! In the early 50s Skeeter and Betty Jack Davis recorded maybe the greatest female country tunes of the time, and pre-rock boogies that would influence THAT little movement, including the great "I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know", and "Rock-A-Bye-B ... CD

Weird, wacky stuff that we can't help but like! Jenks Tex Carman was a strange dude who recorded for Capitol in the early 50s – singing pared down country ditties peppered with lots of mush-mouth gibberish that he claimed was Cherokee – it's NOT. He also added lots of odd Hawaiian ... CD
