Hear the First of the Lost Johnny Cash Recordings


Not long ago, John Carter Cash uncovered, "among a huge stash of Johnny and wife June Carter's effects," the master tapes for an album his father recorded in the early 1980s but never released. The album, called Out Among the Stars, will finally come out in March, and, according to Rolling Stone, it features duets with June Carter and Waylon Jennings.

The first track to be released is "She Used to Love Me a Lot," which you can hear below. If you don't yet know Cash's work well, you'll want to start elsewhere. But for fans, this is a very welcome addition to the man's canon.
