Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

WNTI- New Jersey online
Always Been There moved me like few musical books that I have ever read.”

PublishersWeekly.com
“Streissguth is a skillful biographer…[An] intimate, illuminating narrative [with] a satisfying sense of history that should please any fan of modern American music.”

Atlanta Journal Constitution, 11/29/09
“[An] emotion-packed, behind-the-scenes account of the making of the album.”

Austin Chronicle, 12/4/09
An effortless read… An enticing view of an artist.”

Minneapolis Star Tribune, 1/10/2010
“[A] thoughtful book…[A] portrait of a middle-aged woman coming to terms with a complicated legacy…Top-notch.”

Publishers Weekly
Starred Review.

Author and music journalist Streissguth, having already written a biography of Johnny Cash (Johnny Cash: The Biography), joined Johnny's daughter Rosanne to document the creation of an album (and tour) that in many ways reflects the complicated relationship between daughter and legendary father. Having achieved musical success in her own right, Rosanne's project is based on a lost list of 100 songs that Johnny gave her at the beginning of her career, which he felt every young musician should know. In the process of reconstructing "the List," Rosanne and Streissguth explore Southern music, the family legacy, and Rosanne's memories of the Cashes and the Carters. Streissguth is a skillful biographer, investigating Rosanne's relationship with work and art as well as with her famous parents. Unfortunately for music enthusiasts, the actual "list" never materializes, but that doesn't stop it from giving this intimate, illuminating narrative a satisfying sense of history that should please any fan of modern American music.

    Wonderful!

    What a great read, both entertaining and inspirational. The writer, Michael Streissguth gives the reader honest and interesting insight into the life of Rosanne Cash, her relationship with her children {Jake & Carrie}, husband {John Leventhal} and father {Johnny Cash}. The book follows the making of The List a CD by John Leventhal and Rosanne, based on a collection of songs that her father gave her many years ago.

    If you think the book is good, the CD is even better, don't hesitate to buy both.
