CD REVIEWS: ROSANNE CASH.

Byline: BY PAUL COLE, JACK DANIELS & DAVID BROOKES

Black Cadillac (Capitol)

OVER two tragic years, Rosanne Cash attended the funerals of her stepmother June Carter Cash, her father Johnny Cash and her mother Vivian Liberto Cash Distin. A cathartic collection of soft-rock songs sees her wrestling with loss, reminiscence and finally redemption - and the results are remarkable. Bookended by old tape of baby talk with her dad, it ranges from a rumbling rock title track to the heart-achingly beautiful guitar adorning laid-back Like A Wave. There's bitter anger in the upbeat Like Fugitives, a ray of hope in I Was Watching You, acceptance during the fragile God Is In The Roses - and it all ends in a minute's silence. PC
