Interesting article suggesting that Native American influence on the blues (and other American music forms) has been ignored or suppressed.

Wish they'd named that Johnny Cash album!

Hi, Thompson-
The 1964 Johnny Cash album you're wondering about is Bitter Tears (Ballads of the American Indian). It features five songs by Peter LaFarge, and three others.

Here's the album:

It includes Cash's memorable recording of As Long as the Grass Shall Grow
