Bloggy Goodness: The Last From Cash

When uber-producer Rick Rubin first started working with Johnny Cash in the mid-’90s the country legend’s career was in a bit of a lull. The pair’s first album together, American Recordings, featured a collection of  sparsely recorded originals and smartly chosen covers sung by Cash in his signature haunting baritone. The critical success of the album, which helped expose The Man In Black to a new generation of fans, spawned a highly successful series of Rubin-produced albums. Nearly seven years after his passing, the series’ final installment, American VI: Ain’t No Grave, will be released on what would have been the singer’s 78th birthday, Feb. 26.

The album, which features the likes of Scott and Seth Avett, Benmont Tench, Mike Campbell, Smokey Hormel, was recorded while Cash was in poor health and mourning the loss of his wife June Carter-Cash. You can currently hear the album’s title track over at Rolling Stone.

Finally, over the last few days the Google-owned blog service Blogger has shut down a number of popular MP3 Blogs for being in violation of the site’s terms of service by posting copyrighted material. Among the sites that have been completely removed are Pop Tarts Suck Toasted, It’s A Rap and LivingEars – which have now all relaunched with their own URLs. Google has posted an official statement about their course of action which you can read here, while PST has a great post up directed towards the situation with Top 10 Tunes That Probably Got Me Booted From Blogger.
