Johnny Cash had already departed Sun for Columbia Records by 1962, but that did not stop his former recording home from issuing a steady stream of albums. The bigger an artist Johnny became, the more Sun delved into their vaults for material to release or reissue. Under such circumstances you can be forgiven for thinking Sun was more concerned with quantity than quality, but the songs on All Aboard The Blue Train stand comparison with much of his later repertoire. That is probably because Johnny sounded at his best when singing about people, places and trains, and those three elements feature predominantly on this album. The stand out cut is undoubtedly Folsom Prison Blues, but his update on Wreck Of The Old ’97, Hey Porter and Rock Island Line are especially worthy of attention.
