Look Again to the Wind: Johnny Cash's Bitter Tears Revisited 50th Anniversary of Cash's Landmark Album Produced by Joe Henry, featuring Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Bill Miller and more

Reviews:

Of all the dozens of albums released by Johnny Cash during his nearly half-century career, 1964's "Bitter Tears: Ballads of the American Indian" is among the closest to the artist s heart. A concept album focusing on the mistreatment and marginalization of the Native American people throughout the history of the United States, its eight songs among them "The Ballad of Ira Hayes," a #3 hit single for Cash on the Billboard country chart spoke in frank and poetic language of the hardships and intolerance they endured.

Now, 50 years after it was recorded, a collective of top Americana artists has come together to re-imagine and update these songs that meant so much to Cash, who died in 2003. For "Look Again to the Wind: Johnny Cash's Bitter Tears Revisited," creative leader and album producer Joe Henry (Bonnie Raitt, Aaron Neville) realized that the "Bitter Tears" album held a special place in Cash's canon, and that in many ways the issues it raised still resonate today. This had to be apparent in the new versions he was recording for "Look Again to the Wind." The album features American music giants Kris Kirstofferson, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Bill Miller, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, and Norman Blake (the guitarist and only surviving member from the original recording sessions) as well as up-and-comers The Milk Carton Kids and Rhiannon Giddens, interpreting the music of "Bitter Tears" for a new generation. As the original album was for Cash, this new collection is a labor of love with a strong sense of purpose fueling its creation. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, Nashville and at Johnny Cash's personal recording studio, Cash Cabin in Hendersonville, TN.

As a companion piece to the album, the documentary, "We're Still Here: Johnny Cash s Bitter Tears Revisited," traces the history of "Bitter Tears" and the making of "Look Again to the Wind." The film is directed by Antonio D Ambrosio, author of "A Heartbeat and a Guitar," a book about the making of "Bitter Tears."
