Review

CMH's Cash on Delivery: An Alternative Country Tribute to Johnny Cash may not consist entirely of alt-country stalwarts -- Wayne Kramer isn't alt-country, even if he's performing alt-country -- but it does feature a strong lineup (Laurie Lewis, the Dimaggio Bros., the Schankman Twins, COD Express, Phil Lee, Lone Prairie) delivering interesting, unexpected twists to familiar songs ("Hey Porter," "I Got Stripes," "Tennessee Flat Top Box," "Jackson," "Don't Take Your Guns to Town," "Ballad of Ira Hayes"). It may not be a record that you play more than once or twice, but it's one of the more enjoyable tribute albums of 1999. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
