Impex Records and Audio International announce the resurrection of an American Classic! The Fabulous Johnny Cash on Impex 180 Gram Vinyl!
“I gave my test pressing of The Fabulous Johnny Cash LP from Impex a spin this week and was totally blown away! The sound and music on this record is amazing… I’ve always liked Johnny but had never heard this record… man am I glad I did! The Man in Black at his finest!” – Bob Bantz, President, Elusive Disc, Inc.
“Don Law’s spare, uncluttered production fills up a room on this vinyl reissue, with a striking balance between Cash’s authoritative presence and the nuanced, sensitive instrumental (Tennessee Two and others) and the vocal (Jordanaires) support. Fabulous, indeed.” – David McGee, The Absolute Sound
The Fabulous Johnny Cash was the third album by country singer Johnny Cash. Originally released in 1959 by Columbia, soon after his departure from Sun Records.
Cash’s debut Columbia LP contained some of his strongest tunes post Sun Records, including the hits “Blue River” and “I Still Miss Someone” and the now classic “Don’t Take Your Guns To Town.” The sonics were smoother, more “studio,” but his voice retained the immediacy and richness that gave his earlier recordings their gravitas and soul. Mastered by Kevin Gray, the cutting engineer who knows when to leave a good thing alone, this is early Johnny Cash the way you remember it – without the noisy, thin vinyl!
