DEEP IN THE STACKS: JOHNNY CASH
February 26 would have marked the 82nd birthday of country legend, Johnny Cash. Much of the “Man in Black’s” deep bass-voiced music echoed themes of sorrow, love, and redemption. Cash influenced countless artists and left a large body of music at his death, including “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Ring of Fire,” “A Boy Named Sue,” and his much acclaimed American Recording sessions with producer Rick Rubin in his later years.
When Johnny Cash sang, whether he wrote the song or not, he owned the song, with that deep, gravelly voice mixed with the Tennessee 3’s boom-chicka sound. He was not only a country legend, but a music legend, and he is deeply missed. The following are some of the holdings from and about the Man in Black at Greenfield Library.
