Johnny Cash -Johnny Cash Sings Hank Williams (Bandbox Exclusive Amber + Black Swirl Vinyl)


Hank Williams was a clear, undeniable musical inspiration to Johnny Cash. While Cash started his long creative journey the year following Williams' untimely death in 1953, Hank's style and sound informed Cash's approach to songwriting and the music industry throughout his career. Hearing Johnny affectionately cover Hank's tunes is a true listening pleasure and an absolute delight, forever unifying multiple generations of country fans in the process. Bandbox is thrilled to share an exclusive pressing of 'Johnny Cash Sings Hank Williams' on stylish "Amber + Black Swirl" vinyl. While the name of the album hints that it is a full record of Cash singing Williams' hit songs, there are in fact only four songs on this collection featuring Johnny covering Hank's tunes. The first four songs on the album, "I Can't Help It (If I'm Still In Love With You," "You Win Again," "Hey, Good Lookin,'" and "I Could Never Be Ashamed Of You," are indeed Johnny covering Hank, and they are spectacular renditions that anchor the entire collection. The rest of the record features Cash's own songs that he wrote and recorded while he was still with Sun Records, including five tracks that made their album debut on this collection. In addition to Bandbox's exclusive color vinyl release of 'Johnny Cash Sings Hank Williams,' our edition also includes a 16-page zine dedicated to The Man In Black that is specific to this release. It features essays about Cash and his creative ties to Hank Williams, as well as the lasting musical impact of the songs on this album, all augmented by stunning photographs of Cash from throughout his legendary career.
