10 Albums That Rocked My World 2010:
#10 - American VI: Ain’t No Grave - Johnny Cash
Audio: Ain’t No Grave (Gonna Hold This Body Down)
This is the final installment of the American Recording series which of course was released posthumously. The song selection may not of been quite as strong as previous installments but it may of been the most appropriate song selection and it is still a stunning testament to Cash’s impeccable ability to interpret other people’s material. In many ways it is a truly goosebump inducing album from an individual who was knocking on death’s door. It is a fitting climax to the American Recording series and an indispensable part of Cash’s legacy.
