Just took a look. Good video. Perhaps she ought to have a lesson in what can be done with today's technologies to one of her dad's songs!

Well, it's a great video and a great song. I love Johnny Cash. Just listen to the American Recordings vol. 1 - vol. 5 from Cash. Great songs...He recorded more songs that Elvis sings like "Bridge Over Troubled Water", "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", "Help Me" , "Why Me Lord", "Danny Boy". He also recorded "One" from U2.

I totally agree with you Ton. Johnny's "American recordings" are wonderful cd's, a real treasure. "The first time ever I saw" is one of his best recordings,much better than Elvis' recording of this song, although Elvis' 1976 version (Burning in Birmingham 29 dec 1976) comes close. Then again, Johnny's versions of "Bridge over" and "You'll never walk alone" aren't that strong as Elvis' version.

Nice to hear Rob that you enjoy Johnny Cash like I do. His last CD...fantastic ! I especially like "Like The 309".

Nothing against Johnny Cash or anybody else who's gonna disagree with me but..Elvis's version of "The first time ever I saw your face" is far better than Cash's..hands down..but then that's my opinion.

Ironically, I always thing that American V is much better than American IV. Some of the tracks on IV were just...well not very good. There are so many highlights on V - including Run On, Love's Been Good To Me and the beautiful On The 309. But surely the weakest track is the first one: Help Me. It seems so poor compared to the others. This is a re-recording - Cash had also recorded it for The Gospel Road double album where it is split up over a side of a record.

Roberta Flack & Gordon Lightfoot had the best versions of First Time Ever I Saw Your Face. One with just piano, one with just guitar. So pure & simple and sung brilliantly. Sorry Johnny & Elvis,

I love Roberta Flack's version too. I don't know the version of G. Lightfoot. I like him, though. But Johnny's version is so pure, simple and honest. Honest and pure counts for the whole American recordings collection. What about "Why me, Lord", completely different approach as the Elvis/JD Sumner version. I like them both, both are very convincing. I don't agree with Shaneleebrown about "Help me". Maybe I like Elvis' version more, I don't know. Johnny sounds so vulnerable there, and (aganin) so honest; of course he was very sick at the time of recording, he knew his end would come very soon and his wife just died. By the way; his version of "Wayfaring stranger" is also of an awsome beauty. A pity Elvis never recorded or sung this song.

Wayfaring Stranger is gorgeous. And, although I kind of hate myself for saying it, I quite like We'll Meet Again as well!

I've just watched the video and WOW... all I can say is "How much these religious songs are boring when they are not sung by Elvis !". As unbearable as the video is.
Rob Wanders wrote on November 28, 2006
my dear Paul from France, you don't know what you are saying. Johnny's interpertations of these songs (specially from the American recordings) are on the same level as the best Elvis-gospels. I agree about the gospels from Johnny sung in the 50's/60's. They sound a bit dull. But not these ones!!
