Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison by Johnny Cash( Recording )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johnny Cash's monumental At Folsom Prison remains a touchstone for country artists in and out of the mainstream, and a landmark in Cash's career, coming at the moment when he was ascending to the Mount Olympus of beloved American artists. As a statement of purpose, At Folsom Prison explores all the styles Cash has made his own and championed as the years have passed -- it's as honest an album as any artist has ever recorded. Bonus tracks include "Busted," "Joe Bean," and the tall tale Cash owns, "The Legend of John Henry's Hammer." Cash's original, Grammy-winning liner notes are reproduced, and he's added an intimate, personal reflection on this project to boot; for good measure, Steve Earle puts in his evocative two cents' worth in the liner copy as well

The unbroken circle the musical heritage of the Carter Family by Carter Family (Musical group)( Recording )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and Dutch and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of American roots music lies with southwestern Virginia's Carter Family's hymns, white blues, transplanted British folk ballads and sentimental 19th-century parlor songs. Playing melody on her bass strings, Maybelle helped to bring the guitar to the forefront of pop instrumentation. Even at the peak of their 1920s-30s success, lead singer Sara's deep tones resonated with restrained sorrow (perhaps for a troubled marriage and a career she wanted far less than husband A.P. and sister-in-law Maybelle). With a voice as weathered as her native Clinch Mountains, Sara, though only in her 30s, sounded like "Worried Man Blues" would eat at her until she reached the "River Of Jordan." These 20 rural tunes come from 1935 and 1940 sessions for ARC and OKeh. None of them were previously recorded for Victor, but Legacy's sound far surpasses Rounder's catalog of their Victor output
