No country fan will be able to resist this box as it includes all the recordings of the ten LPs that Johnny Cash issued between 1957 & 1960. Everything about the “Man in Black” can be found in the many books about him: His influence on Country music, his drug addiction and his long term love for his wife June Carter, his international career and the innumerable awards. However, these CDs are not biographical details but of course the music of the singer & songwriter with almost 500 titles, over 50 million records sales and 13 grammy awards to his credit.
This box comprises not only of the early titles, still leaning towards Rockabilly, such as “Get Rhythm” but also Cash’s tribute to country star Hank Williams, The Gospels and of course all the hits of the first years. Despite severe problems with Drugs throughout his life Johnny Cash always devoted time to the exploited and downtrodden, and many of his critical songs express these sentiments. Even after his death in September 2003 numerous unpublished recordings continue to appear, but his innumerable fans will find the true & typical Cash sound in this Box: Pure Country, No computer tricks or any of the technical manipulations so often applied in today’s recordings. On these CDs we can hear how & why Johnny Cash became the greatest star of the country scene.
