Album: Johnny Cash, Johnny Cash Remixed, (Compadre records)
Sunday 14 June 2009
What would the Man In Black have thought?
That's the obvious reaction to this "official" remix project, though Cash himself was showing an interest in contemporary music in his later years, so you never know.
Sadly, these reworkings are scarcely cutting-edge. Inevitably, the welding together of country guitars with dated 1990s big beats ends up sounding like Everlast. Snoop Dogg lifts things momentarily, even if his presence on "I Walk the Line" consists of some perfunctory MCing .
