Armed with only four major chords and his distinctive voice, Johnny Cash has piloted his way into musical history and into the hearts of millions. With over five decades of recording, Cash has an incredible volume of recorded material. The sheer volume of work can make Cash's recorded repertoire difficult to access for the researcher or fan. John L. Smith, Cash's discographer and friend has written an answer to those problems with Another Song to Sing: The Recorded Repertoire of Johnny Cash. Smith presents information about Cash's repertoire indexed by song title. Whereas in a "sessionography" one might have to wade through many pages covering entries for different session dates and overdub sessions to find if, when, and how a particular title was released, Another Song to Sing presents all pertinent information for a given title in an entry for that title. Over 2,600 entries provide information pertaining to composers, producers, recording locations, dates of sessions (including any and all overdub sessions), personnel, and release dates for singles, extended-play and long-play albums, and CDs. Over 220 albums and CDs are listed. In addition to the alphabetical song title listings, Smith presents us with a collection of liner notes written by Cash himself, allowing a look at how he perceived his own music at any given period of time.
