It would be interesting to hear some more Elvis songs with modern-sounding backings.
Slow numbers as well as the rockers.

The Nike football (soccer) commercial may have been the only way ALLC ever broke through. Talk about good fortune!

Of course Cash had the advantage of working with an innovative producer in his later years and the material that Rick Rubin provided for him was certainly a factor in re-establishing Johnny and broadening his fan base, but lets not forget that the older, more traditional Cash material was also a feature of all the “American” albums, and even when Cash was covering the likes of Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails, he stayed true to his own sound and musical values.
