Johnny Cash was born during the great depression into a poor family in Arkansas.
At a very young age he worked on the family farm and experienced many of life’s
struggles. This is also the time he would develop his love for music, family and
the Bible, which followed him closely throughout his long career.
In the early fifties after spending time in the Air Force, he moved to Memphis,
became friends with folks like Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley and
Jerry Lee Lewis, and ultimately cut some sides at Sun Studios which became the
catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide
superstar, troubadour and humanitarian unlike the world has ever known. The
folks at Columbia Records knew that this young fellow named Johnny Cash was
destined for super stardom. They quickly signed the legend to a long term deal,
and his first Columbia singles like his prolific "Don’t Take Your Guns to Town"
forever etched “The Man In Black” trademark to his name.
In 1967 after many chart topping country and pop albums and a bevy of hit
singles and Grammy Awards, more fame followed as the brass at Columbia Records
honored their journeyman Johnny Cash with his first hits collection, the
multi-platinum "Johnny Cash’s Greatest Hits." The album was a blockbuster as it
topped the charts, making this a crossover hit with both country and pop
audiences, proving once again that his career was of historic merit. Filled with
more hits than a roadside jukebox, the amazing album takes off with the classic
duet with wife June Carter Cash and Grammy Award winner "Jackson." This chart
topping single is followed up by one of his most famous songs the number one "I
Walk the Line."
More treasures follow with the country belter "Understand Your Man" and Cash’s
own hit interpretation of "Orange Blossom Special", which truly made the album a
treasure trove of hits.
More greatest hits follow as the LP features a nice helping of solid smashes
like "Ring of Fire" "Five Feet High and Rising" and probably one of the first
Bob Dylan covers ever with his haunting "It Ain’t Me Babe." In total, the album
showcases eleven important Johnny Cash recordings which have truly gone on to
become international classics for all time.
