- Walk the Line soundtrack (Wind-Up, 2005)
Articles and Interviews
Any filmmaker who chooses to condense the colorful life and adventurous times of a larger-than-life historical figure into the cramped confines of a two-hour movie is begging for a thorough caning from film critics and historians alike if the project is botched. Surely that must have occurred to director James Mangold over the past half decade as he desperately attempted to wrestle the irresistible love story of Johnny Cash and June Carter into "Walk the Line." ...
Sickness seemed to be robbing Johnny Cash of his music making abilities. Bouts in the hospital left him weak, appearing not to be in the best of health.

The result was a series of superb albums culminating in last fall's five-CD boxed set of even more outstanding works from the Man in Black only a few months after his death. Despite the acclaim, great album reviews and awards received by Cash, that did not translate into airplay on country radio stations. ...
The words "legend" and "legendary" often seems overused and trite. Few people truly seem worthy of the attributions. But how else to describe the man who started his shows with the simple "Hello I'm Johnny Cash"? He most definitely was a musical legend not only in his own time, but also for all times to come.
