Massive Johnny Cash Boxset Released

Columbia Records has issued a 63-disc, 59-album Johnny Cash box set. The set, a boon for American Man in Black fans, includes 35 albums getting their first release in the U.S.A.; two of the discs-Johnny Cash with His Hot & Blue Guitar and The Singles-are exclusive to the collection.

Several rare discs are included, such as Johnny Cash pa Osteraker, recorded at Osteraker Prison in Sweden in 1972, Strawberry Cake, recorded at the London Palladium in 1975, and Koncert V Praze, recorded at the Sport Hall in Prague in 1978.

The focal point of the set is Cash's first 19 albums (1958 - 1967), released for the first time in mono sound on CD. Each album is packaged as a mini-LP CD with its original artwork.

A 55-song collection, The Singles, features guest spots from Bob Dylan, the Carter Family, Mother Maybelle Carter, June Carter Cash, the Earl Scruggs Revue, Marty Robbins, Willie Nelson and Shel Silverstein.
