This 1983-2003 anthology includes her diverse hits and album tracks. Cash has always confounded those who would speculate on her direction, from country to rock to pop. For those just discovering Cash, this is an enlightening start.
This provocative, cutting-edge album features stunning, utterly surprising interpretations of his songs by gifted contemporary female artists, including Fiona Apple, Sam Phillips, Madeleine Peyroux, Missy Higgins, Jill Sobule, Nikka Costa, Sara Watkins, and Patty Griffin.
Produced by Rosanne's husband John Leventhal and featuring guest appearances by Sheryl Crow, Steve Earle, Teddy Thompson, and Johnny Cash, the album is a showcase for Cash's trenchant, soul-baring songs about love and mortality.
