36 Songs, 1 Hour 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

From the start, Cash’s grave baritone implied struggle and resolve, lending gravity to whatever he attempted. “I Walk the Line” and “Ring of Fire” touch the extremes of devotion and temptation; “Man in Black” and “Song of the Patriot” express America’s disappointment and promise. As his career progressed, Cash strived to cross boundaries between genres and age groups, turning Bob Dylan tunes like “It Ain’t Me Babe” into unlikely country hits and teaming up with U2 for 1993’s “The Wanderer.” The tracks in this anthology capture his abiding faith (“Were You There When They Crucified My Lord?”), moral courage (“The Ballad of Ira Hayes”), and folksy humor (“Jackson,” “A Boy Named Sue”). This well-selected anthology does right by the Man in Black’s memory.

Excellent collection covering his whole career.

36 songs about life, by Johnny Cash.

Check out the iTunes biography on Johnny. His music covers dozens of "Genres" - which is saying that he sang about it all and in any style he pleased.

To answer another reviewer's question... The link from Brian Eno is probably from the collaboration with U2.
