Love

Editorial Reviews

"I remember when I fell into June's 'Ring of Fire.' There was a lot of showing it as well as saying it. Never has there been a deeper love than my love for her. At times it was painful, but we shared the pain, so it was just half painful." --Johnny Cash, liner notes excerpt

As much as Cash has celebrated the joy and pain of pursuing, finding, and losing love, he's been forever perplexed by its power. This is the subtext that gives many of the songs on LOVE part of a triptych that includes GOD and MURDER an edgy, restless ambience, as if what's here today might well be gone tomorrow if he doesn't watch himself. "I Walk the Line," from 1956, introduced a mindset that would be ...

"I remember when I fell into June's 'Ring of Fire.' There was a lot of showing it as well as saying it. Never has there been a deeper love than my love for her. At times it was painful, but we shared the pain, so it was just half painful." --Johnny Cash, liner notes excerpt

As much as Cash has celebrated the joy and pain of pursuing, finding, and losing love, he's been forever perplexed by its power. This is the subtext that gives many of the songs on LOVE part of a triptych that includes GOD and MURDER an edgy, restless ambience, as if what's here today might well be gone tomorrow if he doesn't watch himself. "I Walk the Line," from 1956, introduced a mindset that would be equally manifest in 1967's "I Tremble for You" previously unreleased in the U.S. and 1996's "The One Rose That's Left in My Heart." On the other hand, you can disregard the philosophical underpinnings and simply enjoy the feelings aroused by these stirring meditations: "Flesh and Blood," "Ring of Fire," the haunting, atmospheric "I Still Miss Someone," and a brisk foray into western swing on "I Feel Better All Over," an overlooked gem from 1960. Only a handful of artists have plumbed the complexities of love as effectively as Cash; fewer still have been big enough to admit to having no easy answers as to what it's all about. David McGee

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Sixteen songs and you're going to adequately sum up Johnny Cash's take on love, the most common element in his lyrics as love is in the lyrics of most popular music performers. That's more of a sampler than a survey. Still, this is a decent compilation, spanning 1956-1996, and understandably most heavy on the earliest part of that period; only three of the songs postdate 1970. "I Walk the Line," "Ring of Fire," and "I Still Miss Someone" will be familiar to, and most likely already in the collection of, any Cash listener. To its credit though, the bulk of this disc spotlights LP tracks that are not all that well known, and are sometimes superb, such as "Oh, What a Dream." Also to its credit, this emphasizes the starker and less embellished of Cash's productions, with little in the way of gloppy supplements to the guitars and voices. Cash never sounded more like Leonard Cohen than he did on the brief "'Cause I Love You" recorded 1969, though it's more likely that Cash influenced Cohen than it is the other way around. As bait to the completists, perhaps, there are two songs that were previously unreleased in the U.S.: the 1964 Cash-June Carter composition "My Old Faded Rose," whose jivey vocal does not sound altogether serious, and the 1967 cut "I Tremble for You" co-penned by Cash and L.C. DeWitt Jr., which has a satisfying acoustic demo ambience. June Carter contributes the liner notes. Love is also available as part of the three-CD box set Love God Murder, comprised of thematic discs that are available together or separately.
