1. Johnny Cash American Recordings (1994)
Johnny Cash’s stark 1994 masterwork was the album that set the standard of all Rick Rubin comebacks. Find an amazing and largely forgotten old school artist, strip away all the production and preconceptions and record them simply in an environment that lets their talent shine. The Man In Black’s career went back to the dawn of rock n’roll at Sun Records and had endured personal tragedies and monumental successes, all of which he brought to bear as he sat down in front of the microphone with only an acoustic guitar to accompany him on a perfectly selected repertoire of originals, standards and unexpected covers. The pairing and formula were so successful it produced another 6 albums worth of music before Cash’s death in 2003, including the hit song and video for his cover of the Nine Inch Nails song “Hurt.”
