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

This is as good as any single disc out there for people wanting only one Johnny Cash hits collection. ( Sorry, you can't put almost fifty years of recordings on one album or box set. ) This cd covers his early period, the live prison songs and the rest of the best. Much has been said about "The Man In Black", for me my favorite part of his music is how well he does train songs, which are found on "Get Rhythm/Story Of Trains And Rivers". He's also one of the best concert performers I've ever seen. Every fan of music needs one Cash album. So, start here and follow up after hearing the various tracks.

This excellent collection is, amazingly, the very first "best of" collection of the legendary country duet Johnny Cash and June Carter. Spanning the years 1964 to 1980, the album features seven of their eight singles (curiously missing "If I Had a Hammer") as well as many rare duet tracks from Cash solo albums. Although the couple sang together for 35 years, they actually recorded surprisingly few songs together despite being one of country music's most popular and famous duets. The songs are (with noting of chart peak of the actual hits)

1. It Ain't Me Babe(#4)

2. Jackson (#2, Grammy winning performance)

3. Long-Legged Guitar Pickin' Man (#6)

4. Oh What A Good Thing We Had

5. Darlin' Companion

6. If I Were a Carpenter (#2, Grammy winning performance)

7. 'Cause I Love You

8. The Loving Gift (#27)

9. Help Me Make it Through the Night

10. The Pine Tree

11. No Need to Worry (#15)

12. Old Time Feeling (#26)

13. One Way Rider

14. Brand New Dance

15. Far Side Banks of Jordan

16. It Takes One to Know One

Songwriters whose works are performed include Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Billy Edd Wheeler, Waylon Jennings, Rodney Crowell, Carlene Carter, and Johnny and June themselves.

This is true blue mainstream country music, not rock n'roll, not folk, and the Cashs are masters of the art. Their Grammy-winning classics "Jackson" and "If I Were a Carpenter" are naturally here as the hilariously sassy "Long Legged Guitar Pickin' Man".

The recent success of the film Walk The Line has spawned numerous - mostly redundant - Johnny Cash solo collections. Surprisingly, this is the first attempt at compiling Johnny and June's best duet recordings and only their second fully collaborative cd (the first, a reissue of their 1967 album Carryin' On, collects the first four tracks included here).

16 Biggest Hits captures most of Johnny and June's duet singles, with their top 30 rendition of "If I Were A Hammer" strangely omitted. Their early recordings were characterized by playful banter, be it humorous ("It Ain't Me Babe," "Long-Legged Guitar Pickin' Man") or flirtatious ("Jackson"). With their marriage in 1968, there was a shift toward songs of devotion to each other ("If I Were A Carpenter," "The Loving Gift," "The Pine Tree"), and later on, God ("No Need To Worry," "Far Side Banks Of Jordan").

Eleven of these tracks were recorded between 1969 and 1977, when duets between two established solo artists were the rage (think Conway and Loretta, Porter and Dolly, George and Tammy). This collection shows that Johnny and June at their best were the equal of any of those other more prolific country tandems, ultimately creating a harmonious bond on and off record.

I've always wanted to have a little Johnny Cash on the shelf, so I went for this collection. It's got many of the standards, which is nice. BUT A TRACK OR TWO HAS BEEN EDITED TO REMOVE PROFANITY. I find this to be profane. While there may be an indication that this is the case somewhere in the item information, I missed it. Now I will have to buy (from a music store where I can listen to the tracks first and ensure they are not modified) some more Johnny Cash to get the real track. . .

Its funny, in all the years that I have been a fan of Johnny Cash I never considered a "greatest hits" of John and June duets. Interesting. Actually, to tell you the truth I never knew there were that many to fill an album. While Junes appearances lighten up a few CASH tunes, I never really considered that she was responsible for much of his sixties chart success.. (not to be mentioned the fact that SHE wrote the song RING OF FIRE..)
Well, here it is. I guess no one else considered this idea until now.. (the hit movie inspired this collection, duh_) and this is perfect for the peeps who liked the film. The WALK THE LINE soundtrack was good, I'll give you that, with fresh renditions of the JOHN/JUNE duets by JOUQUIN/REESE. But if you wanna hear what these songs REALLY sounded like, and feel what that magic was between the REAL Johnny Cash and June Carter, this collection is pretty darned intrestin'.
JACKSON, DARLIN COMPANION, LONG LEGGED GUITAR PICKIN MAN.... June Carter adds much playfulness to Johnny Cash's style. Cash's music is mainly stuff to cry to when you're drinkin', but Cash/Carter duets are stuff to clap your hands and smile to... when you're drinkin'.
Although I'm missing the Live stuff (and really I will probably mention the FOLSOM and SAN QUENTIN albums in EVERY review I write for anything CASH related... you get June Carter sass in those too, and they rock the most) but this is the meatiest collection of the two together, spanning the years 1964-1983. Theres something good about those two, they inspire good energy, you may like...

However, that has got to be the WORST picture of the two of them on the front of the CD. Whats up with that? Oh well 5 stars.
