When I was around eleven my friend's father got a car with an eight track stereo. We used to sneak up to his garage and listen to the eight track in the car with the garage door closed. Johnny Cash and a boy named Sue was an absolute favourite - we knew every word and would recite it in the playground:-

'some gal would giggle and I'd get red
some guy would laugh and I'd bust his head'

Move it on more years than I care to mention, and Johhny Cash only really came back on my radar when he died. I listened to some of the programmes and biopics and realised that beyond the celebrity high profile the man was also very well respected musically.

I'm trying to fill my Walkman, with 16gb being quite a challenge to my wallet, and a recent purchase was this. The album hangs together very well, as a piece. I can't talk about different periods in his music or his recording history, but I didn't find any urge to move forward through any of it. If I had to pick some favourites the live 'Folsom Prison Blues,' '(Ghost) riders in the sky' and of course my childhood favourite 'A boy named Sue' would be my picks.

So all-in-all it did everything I expected, and possibly a bit more, though that may be partly the positive memories it evoked- a pretty solid 5 stars from me.

Just how do you get the 'essential' (or definitive) Johnny Cash recordings from a near 50-year recording career of over 2500 songs on to a single CD? Well, of course, you don't. What you'd need is the best of his Sun output, the best of his long spell with Columbia, a selection from his Mercury years - there really was some good stuff - and then the pick from his Rick Rubin American Recordings years. You'd need more than one disc.

This 24-track compilation from Johnny's 28 years or so with Columbia is a very good selection from his time with that label, and a decent starting point that gives you a good idea of what he was about. We get many of JC's best-known hits such as the opening track, A Thing Called Love and Daddy Sang Bass, Jackson with wife June Carter, Dylan's Wanted Man, and of course Folsom Prison Blues and San Quentin from the 2 late-Sixties ground-breaking live albums. There's also A Boy Named Sue which was cut live on stage as a new song at San Quentin prison, to give Johnny his third Billboard country chart-topper in a row. From what I recall, Sunday Morning Coming Down was also recorded live (at the Ryman) for The Johnny Cash Show for airing on ABC-TV in the US.

You could say there are a few good 'uns from this era that are missing, such as Tennessee Flat Top Box, Give My Love To Rose, Five Feet High And Rising and Understand Your Man, but there are no particular duds here, and we do get Nick Lowe's Without Love, Jagger and Richards' No Expectation and Springsteen's Highway Patrolman which add a bit of variety to the collection.

Being a major label release, the sound quality is very good, and the tracks run to nearly 75 minutes. The packaging amounts to a cardboard sleeve with a slide-in inner sleeve that holds the disc.

Pretend it is Christmas or it is your birthday - treat yourself - buy this CD. If you like country music you will not be disappointed. This is the best of the master. Twenty four songs - even if the CD was priced at ten pounds (UK money) that would be less than one pound a song.Must be bargain of the year. This is Pure Gold. Twenty four of the masters greatest hits. I'm fortune enough to have an old LP record that was recorded live at San Quentin prison. The sound effects,and not just the musical sound effects, are great.This is a CD you will never get tired listening to. Buy it now.

This lovely album perfectly covers the early years of Johnny Cash. Despite being a compilation it hangs together artistically, and best of all, does it in a single CD. The best music for the family in the car.
You can take your pick of the American Recordings of his final years, but this is the album which shows you where he came from, his humour and greatness.
These are all the tracks you have to have.

I'm a massive fan of the golden oldies of yesteryear (40's, 50's, 60's and 70's). I wasn't born back then, being an 80's child, but I share a deep appreciation for true singers like Johnny Cash who I can only describe as being one of the greatest singers from that era.

I specifically bought this CD as a treat for myself and mainly for also replacing the gaps of songs I'm missing on Spotify (technology may have progressed, but not the singers!). It has Johnny's most popular songs included all on one CD and although I will personally collect a few more of his CDs, I would say that this CD is the best place to start.

The man may not walk among us anymore, but his music will be eternal. I like to think that he's still rocking out with his buddies, Elvis and co. somewhere in the afterlife.

If I could have only one Johnny Cash recording - this would be it. The 24 tracks range throughout in his wide repertoire. They're all there, it seems: `Ring of Fire' and (of course) `I Walk the Line', the classic live recordings of `San Quentin', `Folsom Prison Blues' and `A Boy Named Sue'... straight through to his `Singin' in Vietnam Talking Blues' - and concluding with his all-time signature piece, the one that puts Johnny Cash in a category above and beyond traditional C&W: `Man in Black'.
