The Johnny Cash Children’s Album (Columbia/Legacy) Ages 4 and up Sony is releasing a slew of vintage celebrity albums for kids, and none would rank among their creators’ most ”personal” work?except Cash’s. He wasn’t a prolific writer after his early years but penned nearly everything on this ’75 release: ”I Got a Boy and His Name Is John” is a charming duet where June?seemingly spontaneously?makes sure Mom gets equal lyrical props; ”Miss Tara” has Cash dreading his last daughter leaving home, when ”I’ll be so alone.” A sweet family memento. B+
