Get Rhythm

 This 2002 pressing of material recorded early in Johnny Cash's career at Sun Studio in Memphis is a great look-back at material that was originally compiled into an album in 1969 from original sessions recorded in 1955-58. In these sessions you can hear Cash working with his early collaborators Luther Perkins and Marshall Grant on a new sound that wasn't exactly country music and could, in many ways, be defined as early rockabilly and yet it was so much more. The heatbeat rhythm that Cash made famous is prominent in these simple, stripped down recordings that sound great on this heavyweight vinyl pressing from Italy.

If you want a good look at early Cash, this is a good place to start with a nice, clean pressing of his beginning sounds that made him part of Sun's Million Dollar Quartet along with Elvis Pressley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. Boy, wouldn't you like to have been hanging out in the lounge there one day in the mid-1950s?
