Somewhat continued from

First, if you don't have Personal File yet, get it NOW! This is an awesome collection of unreleased tracks from the 1970s and 80s, and sounds remarkably like American Recordings, only 20 years earlier.

Second, has posted the track list for American V:

1. Help Me
2. God's Gonna Cut You Down
3. Like The 309
4. If You Could Read My Mind
5. Further On Up the Road
6. The Evening Train
7. I Came To Believe
8. Love's Been Good To Me
9. A Legend In My Time
10. Rose Of My Heart
11. Four Strong Winds
12. I'm Free From The Chain Gang Now

I'm noticing there's not much revisiting of older Cash songs, like he'd sprinkled in on earlier American albums.

I'd heard he was listening to and recording a lot of old blues numbers before his death, so I wonder if "Help Me" is the Sonny Boy Williamson (II) song; and "Further On Up the Road" is probably the Bobby "Blue" Bland number. Both excellent songs.

"If You Could Read My Mind" is an awesome song, and I can't wait to hear his version.

I'm a little disappointed that "John the Revelator" isn't on this album, since I know he recorded it in his final days. Hopefully it will show up on American VI.
