Johnny Cash With His Hot and Blue Guitar ! (1957)

They used to call me Rockabilly
all of us ran through
When Elvis opened up the door 
with a pup-and-pup-and-boo
I didn't ever play much rock and roll 
cause I got so much country in my soul
 Johnny Cash

This will ease us out of Rockabilly mode for a while. As Johnny himself said, he was never anything other than Country, but the Country and Rockabilly sounds got pretty close in Memphis back then.  
This was the first ever LP on Sun Records, and a lot of the characteristics of the early Rockabilly sound are strongly in evidence.
