Technically, Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash isn't a greatest-hits collection, but it does contain a number of his greatest performances and singles, including "Ring of Fire," "I Still Miss Someone," and "The Rebel -- Johnny Yuma." These are supported by solid originals ("Forty Shades of Green," "I'd Still Be There," "Tennessee Flat-Top Box") and covers ("[There'll Be] Peace in the Valley," "Bonanza"), which help make the record one of Cash's best.

Really a must for any serious record collector. If you grew up in the 60's, like me, you probably own the original vinyl. If you didn't, this is as good a Johnny Cash album as any to include in your collection. The CD version could stand re-mastering, but that's not to say that you shouldn't pick up on this collection now. "Were You There When They Crucified My Lord" alone is worh the price of admission. "What Do I Care" and "I'll Still Be There" are both great recordings, and the patriotic-Alamo-western-Civil War numbers are good as well. And are great for little cowpokes you might have running around the house too. Moonhog Review
