WALK THE LINE – Soundtrack

The soundtrack to the award winning Walk The Line bravely but rightly opted to use the voices of the actors who did their own singing in their roles. They include Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon respectively with songs like I Walk The Line, Ring Of Fire, Cry Cry Cry, Folsom Prison Blues (sung by the former), Wildwood Flower and Juke Box Blues (by the latter), both also appearing together on It Ain’t Me Babe, and Jackson. In addition you also get Waylon Malloy Payne doing Lewis Boogie as Jerry Lee Lewis, and Tyler Hilton doing a young Elvis with That’s All Right and Milk Cow Blues. The sixteen tracks also include Shooter Jennings doing I’m A Long Way From Home.
Tracks were produced by T Bone Burnett (who also took care of the soundtrack to the Coen Bros. O Brother, Where Art Thou?). Hopefully the movie evoked renewed interest in the music of Cash, and awakened further investigation in those ignorant of the man, his music and his status as American icon. But while there is a wealth of Johnny Cash original recordings to discover, this is a testimony to the hard work put in by the actors to bring across the humanity of the Man In Black. Enhanced features include additional performance footage not included in the film.
