Massive Johnny Cash Box Put An Homage

Anyone with a die-hard Johnny Cash fan in their holiday list might want to look at putting a bow on a huge new career retrospective from Columbia/Legacy.

The 63-disc Johnny Cash: The Complete Columbia Album Collection ($230) brings together 59 albums. It starts with 1958’s The Fabulous Johnny Cash, which featured his first No. 1 country single, Do not Take Your Guns to Town, and stretches through 1990’s Highwayman 2 with Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson. Money, who died in 2003, would have turned 80.

Cash embraced a variety of styles — country and western, gospel, blues, rockabilly, traditional balladry and folk — even though with his gravelly baritone that was deep created each distinctly his own. The set includes 35 records being released for the first time on CD. Each title is packaged including the five original gatefold albums in the Columbia discography of Cash, using its original artwork. It comes with a full-color booklet that includes information on each album: guest performers, recording cities and dates, musicians, songwriters, manufacturers, release dates, catalogue numbers and chart positions.

One of the many rarities are two Film soundtracks Made in Nashville in 1970 by Bob Johnson: I Walk the Line, directed by John Frankenheimer and starring Gregory Peck, and Little Fauss and Big Halsy, a motorcycle film starring Lauren Hutton and Robert Redford.

There are two new compilations to complement the boxed set. Johnny Cash With His Hot & Blue Guitar, a 28-track Selection of songs released during his Sun Records decades (1954-58), and the two-CD The Singles, Plus, a 55-song collection constituting 1958-1985 and featuring singles that did not look on his Columbia albums, plus guest appearances by Bob Dylan, the Carter Family, Mother Maybelle Carter, June Carter Cash, the Earl Scruggs Revue, Marty Robbins, Willie Nelson and Shel Silverstein.
