Cash’s, “lost” album, Out Among the Stars is released. The songs were discovered by the label and Cash’s son, John Carter Cash, in 2012. Some of the songs include duets with Waylon Jennings and June Carter Cash. The material was recorded at Nashville’s Columbia Studios in 1981 and 1111 Sound Studios in 1984. John Carter:
Columbia Records had lost interest in Johnny Cash at the time, they didn’t know what to do with him. When I listened to these tracks, it showed the lack of sincere interest that was there – some of these tracks didn’t have guitar solos.
