Johnny Cash: The Complete Columbia Album Collection

A whole lot of Johnny Cash on Columbia

After three years on Sun, Johnny Cash moved to Columbia, where a nearly 30-year run produced an unparalleled catalog of recordings. Many of Cash’s singles and albums have been reissued, but a surprising number have not, or not in the U.S. The Complete Columbia Album Collection features 59 albums on 63 CDs, including 35 albums (19 in mono) seeing their first CD release in the U.S.  In addition to Cash’s studio albums, the set includes eight live titles, including a 1978 show in Prague making its first appearance on a domestic release. Also included are soundtracks from I Walk the Line and Little Fauss and Big Halsy, the bible chronicles The Holy Land and The Gospel Road, two albums with the Highwaymen, and children’s and Christmas releases. Rounding out Cash’s Columbia albums are two CDs of non-LP singles and a new compilation of Sun-era tracks. The box is a monument to one of music’s most towering figures and a tribute to the wide swath he cut through American culture. [©2012 Hyperbolium]
