As part of Columbia/Legacy's ongoing celebration of Johnny Cash's 80th Birthday in 2012, the label assembled a series of compilations under the rubric "The Greatest." The concept of this 14-track compilation is clear: it is a collection of duets Cash cut for Columbia between 1967 and 1985. Some of these cuts appeared on albums by other artists "Girl from the North Country" is pulled from Bob Dylan's Nashville Skyline, some were not released at the time his George Jones duet "I Got Stripes" was a bonus track on the 2002 reissue of Silver, some are pulled from Cash's TV show the opening "I've Been Everywhere" with Lynn Anderson, a few are duets with his wife June ...
