It's a great and perhaps impossible challenge to encapsulate the highlights of Johnny Cash's vast musical catalogue in a 20-song collection like this. Yet, what is achieved is a snapshot of his hits during the Man in Black’s most memorable work for the Sun, Columbia, and Mercury labels.
Above all else, these 20 selections are wonderful reminders of Cash's rustic eclecticism. Cuts range from '50s Sun rockabilly classics like “Hey Porter” and “I Walk the Line” to ‘60s country-folk gems like “Ballad of A Teenage Queen“ and Cash’s memorable live recording of ”A Boy Named Sue”.
Featuring duets with his singer-songwriter wife June Carter Cash on “Jackson” & “If I Were A Carpenter”, this Australian/New Zealand exclusive celebrates one of world’s greatest musical icons.
