Editorial Reviews

Celebrating one of the most legendary and diverse careers of all time, Johnny Cash The Greatest series highlights and honors the various musical sides of Johnny Cash.

This 19-song overview of all of Johnny Cash's #1 hits is the most stellar collection of his most beloved work. From absolute classic "I Walk The Line," to "A Boy Named Sue," which made Cash a superstar, to the legendary live performance of "Folsom Prison Blues," the best work of Johnny Cash is represented here. Few artists ever achieved the legendary status of Johnny Cash and these 19 tracks represent Johnny Cash at his peak. The Number Ones displays the absolute chart-topping prowess of a superstar as big as any artist in history.

one of the baddest artists ever who truly had an idenity and how he wanted his music to sound and be heard as. all of his classic number ones are represented here. his voice truly had an emotion about it that very few acts can truly get to. and his story telling and the way he would plead and follow line after line was very real and raw and yet accessible enough for all to relate to it. these songs are classics.

Although not all of my favorite Johnny Cash songs are included, these are his most popular recordings, and they are all great! If you buy this one, get ready to time-travel back about 4or 5 decades and remember what you were doing when these songs became #1 hits!

First and foremost: This is a compilation of Cash #1 songs - not a greatest hits, not a "Best of..." but a collection of number ones. The songs he sung that reached number one. It is also not a bunch of extended versions for albums - i.e it is what is. (Remember most country songs of the 60's/70's and probably still do had/have to be under 3-3.5 minutes to get played and preferably under 3 minutes and closer to 2.5 minutes.)

Perhaps, John's signature song I Walk The Line starts us off and then a lesser known There You Go. The very early hit: Ballad of A Teenage Queen, followed by the philosophical Guess Things Happen That Way to the more intimate telling of: The Ways O A Woman In Love. We also get the more well known Cash classics: Ring of Fire, Folsom Prison Blues and the gospel flavored: Daddy Sang Bass (That also features The Statler Brothers singing backing vocals). Perhaps A Boy Named Sue got him the national non country following in the early 70's (me thinks.) His gritty soul baring country classic: Sunday Morning Coming Down written by superb singer-songwriter-movie actor Kris Kristofferson who also wrote both the Sammi Smith classic: Help Me make It Through The Night as well as the country standard classic by Ray Price: For The Good Times.

We have the gutty and wrenching Flesh and Blood. Then a late 60's or early 70's song: One Piece At A Time - the telling of an auto worker stealing an auto piece at at time. There Ain't No Good Chain Gang is a very strong classic duet with Waylon Jennings. Before we end his Ghost Riders In The Sky classic and then The Highwayman: A legendary song because Johnny joins along with: Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and the a fore mentioned Kris Kristofferson.

Again, I gave this Cd to my son who enjoys mostly rap and rock and roll. He was very happy to receive this collection of some of the best music ever written and or sung.
