Originally released on compact disc and digitally in 2004, this album is now being released on double vinyl for the very first time.
The Unbroken Circle project was initiated by Johnny Cash and son, John Carter Cash after the passing of their family’s matriarch, June Carter Cash. It was tribute to the music of her family, the first family of country music, The Carter Family. The Unbroken Circle features fifteen new recordings of Carter Family standards by artists weaned on these incredible songs and on Mother Maybelle’s ground breaking guitar playing. The album features the last recording from Johnny Cash on “Engine One-Forty-Three,” recorded right before his passing along with “Hold Fast To the Right” from June Carter Cash’s recording sessions for the double Grammy award winning Wildwood Flower album.
