RARA-AVIS: Number One with a Bullet?

From: Kevin Burton Smith ( kvnsmith@colba.net)

I know this is probably hopelessly off-topic, but the topic of hard-boiled music has occasionally popped up here on this list.

I just thought I'd mention that a collection of some of Johnny Cash's crime-oriented stuff from the last, what? forty or or so years was released this week, promisingly entitled MURDER. Some of this stuff, such as DELIA'S GONE, is just relentlessly, positively vicious. Cave, Waits, Zevon et al are just fine, but this is the real deal when it comes to hard-boiled music. Accept no substitutes.
