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

Long after Johnny Cash left Sun Records for Columbia, Sun owner Sam Phillips continued reissuing the seminal sides he'd recorded before the jump. This 1961 collection collected a dozen singles sides (some A-sides, some B-sides), ranging from his first Sun single, the beautifully stark and emotional "Cry! Cry! Cry!" b/w "Hey, Porter!" to tracks later overdubbed (by producer Jack Clement, no doubt) with a vocal chorus ("Sugartime" "Down the Street to 301").
Also included are several classic Cash tic-tac sides, including "Life Goes On" and "So Doggone Lonesome," and four of the bonus tracks present original undubbed versions of Jack Clement's constructions. Stripping away even the subtle overdubbing work of "My Treasure" reveals Cash the singer-songwriter, picking his acoustic guitar as accompaniment. Similarly, the undubbed master of Don Gibson's "Oh Lonesome Me" shows off the beautiful simplicity of Cash with the Tennessee Two. The fifth bonus track is a 1955 take of Marty Robbins' "I Couldn't Keep From Crying," shelved at the time.
This is a good overview of the arc Cash traversed at Sun. It includes the rawness of his earliest sides, as well as the manicured overdubs with which Sun tried to crack the pop charts. The songlist intersects many other Sun-era releases, but the collection of titles here makes a really nice album spin.

What were you doing back in the mid '50s and early '60s? Well, like most of us were listening to Johnny Cash and the music that changed the recording industry. Creating one of the most important bodies of work in Country and Rock embelished music history. As you listen to each track there is a variety of American musical traditions ~ such as gospel, folk, blues and country spreading the infectious style Cash was noted for. The Sun releases was reminiscent of the days when I was growing up in the '50s, enjoying every record he recorded. Even if you don't care for country music, you can respect Cash for his one-of-a-kind musicianship who came from humble beginnings.
Cash started composing at a very young age about the railroad (trains) as we hear "HEY, PORTER!" ~ the pure enjoyment of writing a song and recording comes through with flying colors "CRY, CRY, CRY!", "MY TREASURE", "SO DOGGONE LONESOME", "YOU'RE THE NEAREST THING TO HEAVEN", "HOME OF THE BLUES" and "PORT OF LONELY HEARTS" sheds some light on the inner feelings of this great human being and entertainer.
Hats off to Varese Records, Cary E. Mansfield and Bill Dahl for this wonderful trip back into the past. This release is just the way we like 'em. Now we can relive those early years when we enjoyed "The Man in Black" ~ aka Mr. Johnny Cash...gotta love it!

I've been a massive Johnny Cash fan my entire life so I was incredibly excited to get this album, which features a good aray of early tunes by the Man in Black, and it should have been a decent album, but the sound quality was absolutely terrible - so terrible in fact that I could hardly discern Cash's lyrics through the graininess of the recording. I wouldn't recommend buying this one without knowing the quality of the recording.

Well, the old saying is true! You get what you pay for. Clearly when a new CD costs less than the shipping. . . something's up and it ain't good!! I have the Pickwick 33 1/3 version of this album from my childhood and was really looking forward to getting this album on CD. I know full well the difference in the sound quality of the Sun recordings of Johnny Cash versus the Columbia Records recordings of Johnny Cash. But holy smoke!! I was not prepared for this disaster. The sound quality of this CD is so damn bad it reminded me of how when I was about 12 years old I would stick a tape recorder next to the stereo speaker to make my own recordings of music from the radio or a record album. The only difference between this CD and some of my early forays into recording is the sounds of the occasional barking dog, slamming door, or sirens in the background are not present on this CD. But come to think of it, this CD must have been produced by a 12 year old kid. How else do you explain this mess? I would have given this CD 1/2 of a star, but that's not possible. So I gave it an additional 1/2 star for the enterprising 12 year old who put this CD out. This is by far the worst CD purchase I have ever made. Ever.
