5.0 out of 5 stars Man in black, December 16, 2005
This review is from: The Legend of Johnny Cash (Audio CD)
It's always difficult to make a greatest hits package on one single CD for an artist with a career of half a century (Ray Charles, Elvis Presley and others) so let's be honest and say that everything is not here. BUT it's a good collection of Johnny Cash's legacy. It mainly focuses on the early days at Sun and the last days with Rick Rubin and there's only a few tracks of his sixties and seventies recordings.
So I'd say that it's a good way to learn where the legend began and where it ended but it's frustrating to hear almost nothing from the rest except A BOY NAMED SUE, SAN QUENTIN or MAN IN BLACK among others.
ONE PIECE AT A TIME (from the seventies) or WHAT IS TRUTH (from the sixties) could have been better choices than THE WANDERER (a bad song from a 1993 U2 album) for example.
Anyway, it's a superb album that deserves its success. It can already be considered as THE Johnny Cash collection.
PS: When I say it's a pity ONE PIECE AT A TIME is not on the CD although it is, it's because I made the review after the European tracklist of the CD where we don't have ONE PIECE AT A TIME. Anyway, the tracklist is quite identical.
