Johnny Cash - Ride this train (1960)

Ride This Train is the eighth album by country singer Johnny Cash. It was originally released in 1960 (see 1960 in music), but later re-issued on March 19, 2002 (see 2002 in music) with four bonus tracks. It is considered one of the first concept albums in the history of pop music.

Interesting notes about Cash
  • In January 2006, singer-songwriter Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees purchased the 13,880-square-foot home on Old Hickory Lake in the Nashville suburb of Hendersonville, Tenn., where Johnny and June Carter Cash lived for 35 years. The house was sold "as is" with seven pieces of antique furniture, including the couple's bed. Built in 1968, the house includes seven bedrooms, five full baths and an outdoor swimming pool.
  • Cash's apocalyptic song "The Man Comes Around" was used to great effect as the intro track to the 2004 horror remake Dawn of the Dead.
  • He guest-starred in an episode of Columbo in 1974, called "Swan Song," playing singer and killer Tommy Brown.
  • As of the late 1980's, Cash's total number of albums sold was an estimated 50,000,000. A more updated and accurate estimate is not available, but due to the resurgence of his career in the 1990's with Rick Rubin, and the success of Walk the Line, the total is probably much higher.
  • Cash appeared in a Simpsons episode (#162, El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer (The Mysterious Voyage of Homer)) as a desert coyote advising Homer to find his soulmate.
