#19) Johnny Cash - The Sun Years (released in 1990, my mom bought it for me in, I think, 8th or 9th grade)

Just another case of owning one album by a master of his craft because I haven't gotten crazy enough about him to get all completist (plus its so satisfying that I haven't worn it out, plus the arrangement of "Ballad Of A Teenage Queen" weirds me out enough that I'm hesitant to check out his Columbia material). This is also another case of feeling no need to explain why this is so enjoyable, though I think a lot of people don't catch how great his happy stuff is because they're too busy listening to his death's door alt-rock balladeering. Favorite Cash song ever is "Get Rhythm."
