Overview

A Johnny Cash song has two components: Cash's deep, gravelly baritone, and that distinctive "chicken pickin'" guitar and bassline. But as 16 Biggest Hits demonstrates, it's what Cash managed to do with those two simple ingredients that makes him a legend. A country singer with a rock & roll heart, Cash created songs that were at once of the moment ("The Ballad of Ira Hayes") and timeless ("Ring of Fire"). 16 Biggest Hits includes a fine sampling of Cash's favorite themes: the socially conscious protest song ("The Man in Black"), the humorous story song ("One Piece at a Time"), and the song of longing and desire ("Flesh and Blood," "I Still Miss Someone"). Also included are the classic "Folsom Prison Blues" (the superior 1968 live version), the snarling put-down "Understand Your Man," and Cash's definitive version of Kris Kristofferson's "Sunday Morning Coming Down."
