Album Notes and Track Listings
Track by track information on the new releases.
Rosanne Cash was born in Memphis on May 24, 1955, two months after Johnny recorded his first sides with Sam Phillips at Sun Records (with “Hey Porter”), and the same month he recorded his second sessions (with “Cry, Cry, Cry”). Three summers later, following his signing to Columbia, Johnny used his advance funds to move his family to the Los Angeles suburb of Ventura, where Rosanne grew up as the daughter of one of popular music’s most volatile and idiosyncratic figures. When she was 11, her parents divorced and Rosanne was raised in the Valley by her single mom.
Each one of the albums includes new liner notes by writers who’ve followed Rosanne’s career since she first emerged on the scene in the late-1970s.
