Overview

Universal's 2010 collection Icon rounds up recordings Johnny Cash made during his stint on Mercury in the '80s, which means that the versions of "I Walk the Line," "Cry Cry Cry," "Guess Things Happen That Way," "Get Rhythm," "Hey Porter," "Wanted Man," "Ring of Fire," and "Folsom Prison Blues" included here are not the original hit versions. They're perfectly fine remakes supported by such '80s vintage recordings as "The Night Hank Williams Came to Town" and a cover of Harry Chapin's "Cat's in the Cradle." This will inevitably be a let-down for those looking for the originals, but they're solid versions and this collection is enjoyable for what it is.
