Johnny Cash’s ‘Bitter Tears’ Fall Again
Tribute album set for 50th anniversary of iconic Cash collection
In 1964, Johnny Cash released Bitter Tears: Ballads of the American Indian, a concept album that served to draw attention to the plight of Native Americans. On August 19th, in celebration of the project’s 50th anniversary, Sony Music Masterworks will issue Look Again to the Wind: Johnny Cash’s Bitter Tears Revisited. The original disc’s material has been reinterpreted for the new collection by Cash disciples Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris and Steve Earle, among others, and was recorded in Los Angeles, Nashville and at the legendary Cash Cabin in Hendersonville, Tennessee.
