Songs of Our Soil by Johnny Cash

Another step along the Johnny Cash journey, and this was another simple collection of songs that he does so beautifully. What I always find weird about these albums is how many covers there are, or songs that are traditional that I had no idea about… Beach Boys’ Sloop John B is on here in a different format because it’s actually an old school traditional song - who knew??? And My Grandfather’s Clock is just an old kid’s song… but also on a Johnny Cash album?!

Hymns by Johnny Cash

I don’t know that I would listen to a Christian album from anyone else but Cash has the vocals to make it work. And in all honesty, this wasn’t so different from his previous albums, just slightly weighted towards the topic of the heavenly father. Otherwise, it was good 50s/60s beats, that incredible voice and short, sharp songs.
