Product Description & Reviews

CDs As country music progressed through numerous stages, Cash's music retained the blunt, pared-down chug first displayed on his 1950s Sun hits. His straightforward lyrics, aggressive strumming, and brooding baritone were backed by the rock-solid Tennessee Two: The simple twang of guitarist Luther Perkins and the foundation of bassist Marshall Grant would remain at the core until 1967. Columbia's comprehensive 3 CD set opens with 15 Sun classics including "Hey Porter" and "Folsom Prison Blues," and the middle disc is ripe with stark and vivid songs of rebels and outlaws, such as the ominous "Don't Take Your Guns to Town" and the riveting steel-driving suite "The Legend of John Henry's Hammer." Cash puts his personal stamp on a variety of songwriters, from Merle Travis and Harlan Howard to Dylan, Springsteen, and the Stones. --Marc Greilsamer
