Because of this, you can imagine how utterly disgusted I was to learn of a new project entitled "Johnny Cash Remixed." This project takes some of Cash's most important work from the 1950s and remixes it with current DJs and artists like A3 and Snoop Dogg. Seriously!?
If the songs themselves weren't travesties enough, the most disheartening news of all surrounding this project is that Cash's own son served as a producer on the album. It just boggles my mind that the son who helped complete some of Cash's last music would be on board to degrade his father's legacy with the likes of Snoop Dogg.
Cash's music never succeeded with overproduction or with remixing of his classic, bare bone, "boom chicka boom" music style. So please, let sleeping dogs lie, especially that Snoop Dogg and stay the heck away from anything decent and good.
