And some final news from Pitchfork before you break up for the weekend. Have a good one dear readers. They report: “Johnny Cash’s 2003 box set Unearthed, a posthumous collection of previously unreleased recordings with Rick Rubin, will receive its first vinyl release this fall, as Rolling Stone points out. The lavish new set—which includes guest appearances from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Nick Cave, Fiona Apple, Joe Strummer, and more—will span nine LPs. It will also come with a 60-page coffee table book and extensive liner notes featuring commentary from Cash and Rubin on each track. Unearthed is due out November 3, via Rick Rubin’s American Recordings.”
