Cultural historian Michael Stewart Foley employed previously unavailable archives and research to examine the life, politics, and multiple cultural personas of entertainer Johnny Cash, who died in 2003. The author sensitively, carefully, and tenderly sets the tone and scope of the work by narrating the lengthy introduction. Sadly, the microphone is then handed to Greg Littlefield, who uses the stereotypical news anchor's distant, controlled style. At various moments, listeners may think they left the radio on across the room. Had Foley narrated the entire work, this thoughtful and intelligent look at the "Man in Black" would have been vastly improved. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2022]
