The Real...Johnny Cash: The Ultimate Johnny Cash Collection [1-CD]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mark Deming
A collection of 30 fine tracks from the heyday of Johnny Cash's career, The Real...Johnny Cash: The Ultimate Johnny Cash Collection has an advantage over many Cash anthologies on the market in that it features classic early sides from Cash's tenure with Sun Records, as well as tracks from his longer association with Columbia Records.
