American V

Laurie and I finally watched, "Walk the Line" Saturday night.
I've been dying to watch it for a while, but my DVD purchases have been limited lately and I never rent DVDs anymore.
Needless to say, I thought it was great. Go watch it if you haven't.
Since Saturday I've been listening to a lot of Cash's music. Especially his American V and IV CD's.
He recorded both of the CD's just months before he passed away, along with "My Mother's Hymnal" another great album.
The music is very raw and honest on both American IV and V. Cash really brings new life into the songs he recorded. Knowing his history and life they really bring out the meaning behind the songs previously recorded by other arists.
