…but for some reason I am drawn towards listening to Johnny Cash, a singer who, in my younger days would have caused me a seizure.
“Unearthed” is a particularly wonderful collection from the “Man in Black”. He does one of the best versions in existence of U2’s “One”.
And this track, “Gentle on my mind” is just brilliant.
I don’t know what it is about Johnny Cash. He’d be rejected on “X factor” for being “too flat”. But for me, he is akin to Rod Stewart. Both Cash and the Rodster could, in my view, pick up (or in Cash’s case could have picked up) the New York Phone Directory at any page and just sing what randomly comes up, and make it sound like an angel singing.
