For the most part, "Johnny's Blues - A Tribute to Johnny Cash" delivers what is promises: Blues interpretations of Johnny Cash's music. Cash songs done as Blues tunes? Without being revisionary, this disc helps the listener realize the great extent that the Blues influenced the music by a song writer best known for his Country, Western and Folk. The recording is filled with some classics that you've heard countless times and others that you may wonder if you've ever heard played by the Man in Black. One of the strongest songs is Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown's jazzy version of 'Get Rhythm.' Chris Thomas King does an animated version of 'Rock Island Line.' Blackie & the Rodeo King's version of 'Folsom Prison Blues' is distorted and surprisingly annoying. Hary Manx's 'Long Black Veil' is beautifully mystical and in the vein of something by U.M. Bhatt & Taj Mahal. Alvin Youngblood Hart's version of 'Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down' is as gorgeous and contemplative as any. 'Redemption' has an African-American Spiritual meets West Africa vibe. 'Send A Picture Of Mother' is an odd instrumental that features a didjeridoo. 'Big River' and 'Will the Circle Be Unbroken' round off the album as strong tunes. While the disc delivers the Blues that it promises, the recording contains a surprising number of songs that do not fall within the conventions of the Blues genre. That written, all of the music falls within an American expression of the African Diaspora, even if through a post-modern interpretation. Overall, it's an eclectic recording that when compared to other Johnny Cash tributes is easily better than "Kindred Spirits" but not as good as "Dressed In Black." While not essential, "Johnny's Blues" is recommended for the Johnny Cash enthusiast and the Blues listener who has a casual interest in the man in black.
