A far-reaching, pretty incredible compilation of legendary tracks and surprising wildcard choices alike, recorded in Nashville in the late 60s and early 70s with the cream of the crop of top notch Music City studio musicians – really showing the creative dexter
ity of those Nashville Cats! Studious fans of music from the period know the studio musicians in Nashville were a heck of a lot more than just country music cogs in the wheel. Listen beyond the vocals and you hear the most intuitive, brilliant playing – whether they're being called to hold a steady waltz pattern or color in subtle strains of soul, or even psychedelia – and this wildly diverse set is a testament. It's titled Dylan, Cash & The Nashville Cats because so many acts clamored to record with the geniuses behind the scenes in Nashville in the wake of paradigm shifting recordings like Dylan's Blonde On Blonde, and Dylan & Cash's then surprising camaraderie, and it's also in conjunction with a great Country Music Hall Of Fame exhibit. 36 tracks on 2CDs: "Absolutely Sweet Marie" by Dylan, the sample classic "Stone Fox Chase" by Area Code 615, "Turn Around" by The Beau Brummels, "Hickory Wind" by The Birds, "Some Of Shelly's Blues" by The Monkees, "Behind That Locked Door" by Ringo Starr, "Crazy Mama" by JJ Cale, "Matchbox" by Derek & The Dominos with Johnny Cash & Carl Perkins (Live on The Johnny Cash Show), "A Six Pack To Go" by Leon Russell, "The Way I Feel" by Gordon
Lightfoot, "Harpoon Man" by Charlie McCoy & The Escorts, "It Ain't Me Babe" by Johnny Cash and much more. Includes a thick booklet of notes, too – truly a top notch, worthy tribute to the unsung heroes behind the recordings!
