Wildwood Flower

You may just bounce between laughter and tears as you listen to June's third and final solo album, finished shortly before her May death at age 73.

Her playful sense of humor delights in tunes like the sassy "Temptation" and between-song tall tales. And the album glows with the warmth of a woman surrounded by family - husband Johnny Cash chips in, along with her children, grandchildren, cousins and even former son-in-law Marty Stuart. But Wildwood Flower can't avoid being heard in the shadow of June's passing, reminding us how much we've lost.

SOUND ADVICE:
A heartbreaking, heartwarming farewell
