Rick Rubin is reportedly currently working on a box set of unreleased recordings from Johnny Cash's unreleased, but sometimes bootlegged, "American Recordings." Wes Orshoski of Billboard has an article on it that includes this glaring error:
Cash's work with Rubin essentially reignited his career in the early '90s (especially in the U.S.), thanks to the producer's stripped-back, simple approach to the material. Many of their early recordings featured only Cash's voice against his acoustic guitar work on such covers as Soundgarden's "Rusty Cage" and Beck's "Rowboat."Actually both of those recordings featured Cash playing with a band. The piece does have this nugget however:
Among the songs slated for inclusion is a duet with late Clash frontman Joe Strummer on Bob Marley's "Redemption Song," which will most likely also feature guitar work by Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave)While I would have preferred better material -I liked Marley off and on for about four years but in the summer of 1998 grew tired of his music and haven't dug it since- but I will take what I can get.
