Happy Birthday, Johnny

Johnny CashBorn today in 1932, one of the greatest American musicians of the 20th century, the Man in Black, Johnny Cash. Grammys crowned his career in its twilight and they were well earned. I've said this before but it bears repeating: if you haven't listened to these albums, you must. They're an astounding collection of songs from gospel to rock to Nine Inch Nails, and they're all Cash. They're all great. Some of them will make you laugh, and some will break your heart.

And the sixth one, even though it was released so much later, is more than just an attempt to cash in - it's good stuff. Good stuff.
