Un best-of et une intégrale vinyle pour Johnny Cash

Deux sorties sont annoncées pour les fans de Johnny Cash : un box avec des enregistrements remasterisés, dont six albums en vinyle ou cd, sous le nom de "THE COMPLETE MERCURY RECORDINGS 1986-1991", et un nouveau best-of intitulé "EASY RIDER : THE BEST OF THE MERCURY RECORDINGS.

Les albums de sa discographie seront aussi pressés en vinyle. Le tout sera disponible ce 24 avril. Au milieu des années 80, Johnny Cash a été signé par Mercury Records pour un contrat de six albums en cinq ans. Les disques sont sortis entre 1986 et 1991, avec de notables collaborations avec Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis et Carl Perkins, mais aussi Paul McCartney et Linda McCartney, Glen Campbell, Waylon Jennings, Emmylou Harris, Hank Williams Jr. et d’autres moments d’inspiration autour de titres d’Elvis Costello, Guy Clark et Harry Chapin. Et cet héritage n’avait jamais été revisité depuis lors… jusqu’à maintenant.


"The Complete Mercury Recordings 1986-1991", sera disponible en éditions de 7CD ou 7LP de 180-gram, rassemblant les albums "Class of '55 : Memphis Rock & Roll Homecoming" (1986), "Johnny Cash Is Coming to Town" (1987), "Water from the Wells of Home" (1988), "Classic Cash : Hall of Fame Series" (1988), "Boom Chicka Boom" (1990) et "The Mystery of Life" (1991). Le tout a été retravaillé à partir des bandes originales par l’ingénieur du son Kevin Reeves au UMG Studios de Nashville.

A la même date, tous les autres albums de sa carrière arriveront aussi individuellement en vinyle.

Sur le premier album de Johnny Cash chez Mercury, "Class of '55 : Memphis Rock & Roll Homecoming", on croise Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison et Carl Perkins. Avec le producteur émérite de Memphis, Chips Moman, les quatre chanteurs passent en revue de nouveaux et d’anciens titres, dont "I Will Rock and Roll with You" et l’hommage à Elvis Presley, "We Remember the King." Une autre ode au King, signée, John Fogerty, "Big Train from Memphis," rassemble des choeurs chantés par June Carter Cash, Rick Nelson, Dave Edmunds, Dan Penn et the Judds.
