Johnny Cash - Out Among The Stars


Beginning his career as an outlaw to the Nashville establishment, Johnny Cash has come to define country music over the last 40 years. At first, his unique mix of hillbilly music with gospel and blues made him a perfect fit at Sam Phillips' Sun records, where he recorded such classics as "Folsom Prison Blues" and "I Walk The Line." From there, Johnny signed with ... Read more in Amazon's Johnny Cash Store

5.0 out of 5 stars HERE'S JOHNNY ....... 8 April 2003
Format:Audio CD
..... at his best . 20 tracks from the early years between 1955 - 1961. As a starting point for anyone new to Johnny Cash this is the album to start with. Tracks recorded at the legendary Sun Studio's at the time of an historic evolution of American music when Johnny Cash / Jerry Lee Lewis / Roy Orbison et al took a look at the rule book and went " yeah OK but lets try it this way. The CD comes in a retro feel with extensive sleeve notes. It features the major building blocks for a major career and transformed a poor farmers son into an internally acclaimed artiste. All consider Johnny Cash's latest released A Man Come's around "

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Outstanding - A great collection - solid sound quality 11 Nov 2009
By A. Freedman - Published on
We live in the age of digital sound - awesome and practically perfect sound reproduction with a full sound spectrum from highs to lows. For ears raised in digital sound Johnny Cash's music can sound flat and monochromatic. And to approach his music with that in mind is to miss the true spirit of Johnny Cash.

Johnny Cash was a giant in his days and his legacy is fully captured in this wonderful compilation from his seminal years at Sun Records. Like all great music, appreciation comes with repeated exposure. Your spirit begins to resonate with the music and the poetry and stories of the lyrics. Some music, that I also love dearly, is best felt via percussive blasts. This music is for quiet and contemplative moments. Watching the turning leaves of fall on a rainy morning or driving down a county lane at dusk a dust cloud bellowing behind the truck.

This is a great collection for fans and a solid step for those who aspire to become a fan of the "man in black"--I highly endorse this collection of songs.

I'm a lover of this type of music. I get the MP3 downloads which hasn't been the best with Amazon's Downloading device this past 4 months which is why I knocked a star off.
5.0 out of 5 stars Love Mr. Cash! <3 27 Feb 2013

Purchased this a while ago, didn't think about writing a review for it. Everything went smoothly and I can also pay the songs from my ipod touch no problem as well as my laptop.

Sound quality is amazing! I have already listened to every song over 20 times.

What can I say? I love me some Johnny Cash. :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Another bitrate ripoff courtesy of Amazon 12 Nov 2009
By alainsane - Published on
Verified Purchase
I noticed Amazon recently removed the descriptor that would tell you approximate bitrate of the files you're "buying" (licensing?). Still...they point to a page that indicates that "where possible" they rip at 256. This is not even *close* for this album. These files average a pathetic 151 VBR. Slowly but surely, I'm losing my buzz about Amazon MP3 and going back to my reliable CD formats.
