Johnny Cash: Now Here's Johnny Cash

Album Notes

Originally released on Sun Records (1255). Includes liner notes by Bill Dahl.

One of the many Johnny Cash compilations released by Sun Records proprietor Sam Phillips after the singer's 1958 departure from the label, NOW HERE'S JOHNNY CASH contains several rarely heard songs, notably a version of the poppy "Sugartime," later to become a hit for the McGuire Sisters, and "My Treasure," one of Cash's earliest Sun recordings. In addition there's a pop-oriented "Oh Lonesome Me," heard here both with and without vocal sweetening, and, as a counterpoint, the earthy "So Doggone Lonesome," which displays Cash at his world-weary best. NOW's bonus tracks also include a bare-bones version of "Home of the Blues" and alternate takes of "My Treasure" and "Sugartime."
