Listen: “Lost” Johnny Cash/Waylon Jennings Duet

Columbia/Legacy

“The Man in Black,” Johnny Cash, passed away on September 12, 2003. From 1958 until the mid-1980′s, he was one of Columbia Records’ biggest-selling acts. However, when his sales began to taper off in the mid-80′s, he was unceremoniously dropped from that label.  In his final years, he recorded a large body of songs for what became known as the “American” albums, named after the label for which they were recorded, Rick Rubin’s American Recordings. Those albums gave Cash’s career a boost as he entered his twilight years. Now, many years after his death, his former label, Columbia, will release a collection of tracks Cash recorded with producer Billy Sherrill (who produced George Jones, Tammy Wynette, and Johnny Paycheck, among many others). According to Ben Kaye at consequenceofsound.net:

Out Among the Stars is the name of an unreleased Johnny Cash album dating back to mid-1980s. As the story goes, Columbia Records hoped to rejuvenate Cash’s career by sending him to work with Nashville producer Billy Sherrill. However, when Cash left Columbia in 1985, the album was shelved and forgotten until Cash’s son John Carter Cash found the tapes in his parents’ home. Two decades later, Out Among the Stars will finally see light on March 25th through Columbia/Legacy.”

The collection includes a previously-unreleased duet version of the Hank Snow 1950 classic, “I’m Moving On,” recorded with Cash’s fellow Highwaymen member, the late Waylon Jennings. Out Among The Stars will be in stores on March 25, 2014, but you can hear a sneak-peek of “I’m Moving On” by clicking the link below. It’s nice to know that even many years after their passing, the Man in Black and Ol’ Waylon can still sing those “train songs!”
