    Half of Everything Johnny Cash recorded from 59 to 62

    The second of 4 box sets from Bear Family that are the very last word in a complete Johnny Cash collection. The third box is titled "Come along and Ride" which are Johnny's travel albums and are themselves well worth looking for. Those travel albums were recorded in the same time period as this box set and will have to be obtained if you really want an absolutely complete set of all his recording. These recordings are the best quality you are ever going to find.
