This Week's Interesting Music Releases - August 7, 2012

Four Johnny Cash greatest hits collections are in stores this week (The Greatest: Country Classics
The Greatest: Duets, The Greatest: Gospel Songs, The Greatest: The Number Ones) along with the We Walk The Line: A Celebration Of The Music Of Johnny Cash compilation.

Of the week's new music, I can most strongly recommend Hungry Ghost's self-titled debut and Ormonde's Machine.

Two remastered Archers of Loaf albums are available this week, each with a bonus disc of unreleased material, All the Nations Airports and White Trash Heroes.
