Johnny Cash was part rockabilly rebel, part campfire storyteller, part outlaw in black. Cash made country and rockabilly history on the Sun label in the 1950s. During the '60s, the ruggedly charismatic Cash rose to superstardom, ending the decade with both his marriage to June Carter and his own television show. In the '90s, Cash began his highly successful and acclaimed AMERICAN RECORDINGS series, reaching a new audience with an amazingly diverse set of songs, ranging from traditional tunes to alternative rock covers. With his lean, angular sound and hearty, passionate baritone, Cash forged one of the most unique styles in all of popular music, one that delved into gospel, folk, and rock, but also remained the essence of country music. Four months after his wife died, Johnny Cash passed away on September 12, 2003. And in 2005, the Oscar-nominated biopic WALK THE LINE brought Cash's music and legend to his largest audience yet.

Great albums from a great man, remembered by many as a bible bashing country and western man, far, far from the truth. This man wrote so many songs, both religious and patriotic, combining the two, as well as rock and roll and other genres, as well as singing them, he toured with Presley and many more, right up until his sad demise he was a singer formost as he proved. Most of these songs are from his earlier to mid genre but they are all superb. A bargain price. Thanks.

Agreed. Hot. Buying.
