Of all the late-career Johnny Cash recordings with Rick Rubin behind the soundboard, those on Unchained are far and away my favorites. That's partly because I spent many a Friday night drinking beer in my buddy Mark's living room listening to this album. But it's also because this is the album with the most breadth, the one with the most surprising and interesting choices of covers, the one that's most celebratory and most fun. It's unfortunate that Choice Hotels turned Cash's version of Geoff Mack's "I've Been Everywhere" into a goddamned commercial, because it's so great on its own merits: funny, whimsical, and strangely wise. Everything a country star in the twilight of his life ought to be.

An incredible effort from Cash at this late stage of his career. His rendition of Rusty Cage is possibly the single best example of how he could play anything and make it his own.

The 2nd best American recording for Johnny Cash. Notable for 'Rusty Cage'.
