Product Description

 

Of all the dozens of albums released by Johnny Cash during his nearly half-century career, 1964’s Bitter Tears: Ballads of the American Indian is among the closest to the artist’s heart. A concept album focusing on the mistreatment and marginalisation of the Native American people throughout the history of the United States. Now, 50 years after it was recorded, a collective of top Americana artists has come together to re-imagine and update these songs that meant so much to Cash. For Look Again to the Wind: Johnny Cash’s Bitter Tears Revisited, creative leader and album producer Joe Henry (Bonnie Raitt, Aaron Neville) realised that the Bitter Tears album held a special place in Cash’s canon, and that in many ways the issues it raised still resonate today. The album features American music giants Kris Kirstofferson, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Bill Miller, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, and Norman Blake (the guitarist and only surviving member from the original recording sessions), interpreting the music of Bitter Tears for a new generation. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, Nashville and at Johnny Cash’s personal recording studio, Cash Cabin in Hendersonville, TN. As the original album was for Cash, this new collection is a labour of love, with a strong sense of purpose fuelling its creation. There is also an accompanying documentar,y We’re Still Here: Johnny Cash’s Bitter Tears Revisited, directed by Antonio D’Ambrosio, that is being pitched internationally for placement.
