Picks and Pans Review: Gone Girl
Not since At Folsom Prison in 1968 has Cash turned out such a totally satisfying LP. It illuminates all his strengths—the story song (The Gambler and his own It Comes and Goes), the duet (with wife June Carter on You and Me), the up-tempo novelty (Cajun Born, with some appropriate Louisiana-tinged concertina fills by Joel Sonnier) and the wanderer's lament (this time with Rodney Crowell's wonderfully melancholic A Song for the Life). The Rolling Stones tune No Expectations turns out nicely too. Even onetime fans who have had a hard time forgiving Cash for his oil company TV commercials ought to be won back, esthetically anyway, by this classic country album.
