This is the first of two of the American Recordings albums to be released posthumously. One of the two original songs recorded for this “Like the 309” was the last song that Cash recorded before his death in September, 2003.
This album features “Further on up the Road” which was originally recorded by Bruce Springsteen and Gordon Lightfoot’s “If You Could Read My Mind”. One of the standout tracks is Cash’s version of the gospel song “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” which was the theme song for the American TV series “Justified”.
Despite this being a posthumous release, “A Hundred Highways” does fit nicely with the rest of the American Recordings series as the same spirit is there.
