Great Compilation From The Man In Black,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 16 Biggest Hits (Audio CD)
This is an interesting CD. Even though the title proclaims "16 Biggest Hits" there is always a huge amount of subjectivity in choosing from a catalog spanning fifty years. In general I am very happy with the CD, and it's a great introduction to Johnny for people new to his music. The collection is from the "classic Cash" era, and while there are songs I wish were on the CD ("Orange Blossom Special" comes to mind,) as a collection I think it succeeds.
There is no possible way to pick sixteen tracks to represent Johnny's amazing career, but for a single CD this one packs a wallop. I am delighted with the increased popularity of Cash since the amazing biopic "Walk the Line," and I encourage people who appreciate great music to check this and all the rest of Johnny's music out!
