The one and only Johnny Cash was the first artist to fuse the sounds of country, gospel, rockabilly and storytelling with a string of unforgettable hits. He wrote moving songs of love and loss, and his voice was not only unique in the field of country & western, but in all of popular music.
This collector’s edition presents a wide selection of those legendary sides Johnny Cash taped at the Memphis Recording Service (now commonly known as Sun Studio) between 1955 and 1958, prior to signing with Columbia. His classic early Sun sound is showcased here, with spare accompaniment that often approaches a rockabilly-country bounce. Every effort has been made to replicate the incredible vibrancy of the original Sun material. All of these remastered gems form the building blocks of Cash’s musical legacy.

“Johnny Cash’s three years of recordings for Sun are a wonderful demonstration of just how far a whole can outclass the sum of its parts.” – Colin Escott & Martin Hawkins (from the book Good Rockin’ Tonight: Sun Records and the Birth of Rock ‘N’ Roll)
