Lonesome in Black: The Legendary Sun Recordings

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Campbell
Metro's double-disc collection, Lonesome in Black, contains 40 of Johnny Cash's biggest hits on Sun Records from 1955 to 1958. All of the original Sun classics are here, including "I Walk the Line," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Hey Porter," "Cry! Cry! Cry!" "Ballad of a Teenage Queen," "Guess Things Happen That Way," and "Get Rhythm." While Cash never recorded any tunes as frantic as his Sun labelmates Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, or Elvis, many of these songs would stand the test of time. The proof is in this package.
