This is a Columbia White Label Promo with absolutely STUNNING sound -- especially considering the "studio" it was recorded in! I don't know how an album recorded in a prison sounds better than most of what hits my table but it's the truth. This copy absolutely floored me and I'm sure whoever takes it home will be knocked out as well. I'm a huge fan of the album -- it's probably my favorite thing Cash ever did and hearing it sound this good takes it to a whole new level. I try not to play favorites with the records I list here, but it's hard to contain my excitement about this one. I hope someone gives it a good home!
5 stars Allmusic: "No other Johnny Cash record sounds as wild as this. He sounds like an outlaw and renegade here, which is what gives it power"
Vinyl: EX (super clean, a light spot on second song that doesn't not affect play, writing on label)
Cover: VG+ (DJ timing strip, small red sticker around spine, filing sticker on back)
Play notes: Absolutely stunning sound, quiet vinyl. An insanely great copy!
We prefer to overdeliver and therefore grade conservatively. Our scale runs Near Mint (NM), Excellent (EX), Very Good Plus (VG+), Very Good (VG), Good Plus (G+), Good (G).
