Here's where you talk to the band


This is one of Johnny Cash's best early songs. It's classic production by Sam Phillips, the exact kind of sound that made Elvis' early songs such a big hit. No drums, but a big, slapping bass and Johnny's vocals sitting in the mix like another instrument, rather than pushed too far out front. And that great Sun slapback delay on the vocals.
