Johnny Cash Rock Island Line 180g LP
Compilation From Sun Vaults On 180g Vinyl LP!
Remastered From Original Tapes!
France's leading deejay in the early '80s, Ding Dong (real name Alain Pourquier)
puts together a selection of recordings from Johnny Cash. The sleeve artwork
features a host of vintage photos of Johnny Cash in his prime.
For the Ding Dong series, Alain Pourquier made visits to the hallowed Sun vaults
in Memphis, Tennessee, where he listened to countless tapes, working his way
through 1,228 outtake tape boxes and in the process selecting the best quality
masters he could find. After listening to more than 11,000 tracks during
February and March of 1983 and identifying a whole stack of unissued sides, he
brought the master tapes back to England, where he embarked upon an amazing
one-man re-issue program. Not only did he master all the recordings, he designed
the sleeve artwork and wrote the sleeve notes. His excellent contacts amongst
record collectors around the world enabled him to come up with a whole stack of
rare artists' shots to use for the album artworks. The resulting albums, both
various artists compilations and solo major artists, have over the years
acquired iconic status and are now much sought after by fans of the
ground-breaking Sun sound. Now lovingly restored, selected titles are presented
in their full original glory for today's vinyl buyers. They are essential
purchases not only for Ding Dong's fans seeking replacements for their worn-out
original copies, but also for today's younger buyers discovering this exciting
music for the first time.
Remastered from the original tapes, pressed on 180 gram vinyl and housed in old
style tip-on cover. The sleeve artwork features a host of vintage photos of
Johnny Cash in his prime.
