Johnny Cash - Out Among The Stars

Biography

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

By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
No Johnny Cash compilation can ever include everything but this collection contains all the essentials from the fifties and sixties, his most productive period that yielded classic songs such as Hey porter, I walk the line, Big river, Don't take your guns to town, Five feet high and rising, I still miss someone, Ring of fire, Understand your man, It ain't me babe (with June Carter Cash), Orange blossom special, Jackson (with June Carter Cash) and A boy named Sue. All these songs and many others are included here.
The fifties and sixties take up the whole of the first CD and almost half of the second CD so, inevitably, there isn't a lot of room for his later music. Even so, the omission of A thing called love (a top five pop hit in Britain and also a big hit in America) will surprise some people. Of the seventies songs included here, the best is One piece at a time, an amusing song about assembling a car from stolen car parts.
Another feature of this compilation is the number of guests including Bob Dylan (Girl from the north country), Marty Robbins (Song of the patriot), Waylon Jennings (The night Hank Williams came to town) and U2 (The wanderer). On Highwaymen, Johnny is joined by Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson, who recorded three albums together as the Highwaymen. This name was originally used by a sixties folk group (famous for Michael row the boat ashore) and sometimes causes confusion.
European buyers may be familiar with a double CD titled Man in black Very best of, which is similar to this compilation but with different packaging and extra tracks. The UK version has four tracks added - So doggone lonesome, Daddy sang bass, Forty shades of green and Man in white.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good tracklist, but what's with the bleeps 7 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
As a guy who has always dabbled at best with real Americana, folk and country music, I am always on the look out for the good collections and best ofs... rather than trying to collect an artists entrie works.
Hence, whilst looking for a good Johnny Cash collection, I cam across this album at quite a reasonable price. The track listing comtains most of the songs I am familiar with, only missing one or two I've heard on other collections, and seemed to be a good first cut of JC's catalog.
However, one feature of the album has put me off really loving this collection, and that being the censoring of certain words ! Especially odd when you consider what is left uncensored in other modern albums of our time. The bleep's in "boy named Sue" and other tracks just seem really out of place, and ruin the otherwise energetic fire of the live recordings. I'll be looking out for another compilation, and making sure it has a "parent advisory warning" on it

Good amount of many different tracks that will please both the hardy Johhny Cash and also a good mixture for the newcomers to Johnny's music.

3.0 out of 5 stars Be aware this release is censored 28 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
Unfortunately, "A Boy Called Sue" gets bleeped, which is distracting in the middle of a live recording. Sony/Columbia get no marks for trying to make a collection of Cash songs kid-friendly.

Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I've have liked Johnny Cash since 1967 when I heard 'Ring of Fire' in the outdoor market on Singapore Island, when I was there with the Royal Navy. I thought about getting this album so I could listen in the car via Bluetooth on my mobile phone.
