Muze PNote Few artists in any genre can rival the recorded legacy of Johnny Cash, so it's impressive that Columbia took on the daunting task of compiling a box set that spans his career from 1955 to 2002. While this collection doesn't feature tracks from any of Cash's acclaimed albums for the American label, it does present a few songs recorded during that '90s/early-'00s era, offering listeners selections that touch upon each decade of the country superstar's studio output.
Muze PNote With its thematically arranged CDs, THE LEGEND revisits a number of Cash's finest Sun singles, showcasing his unmistakable deep voice and signature "boom-chicka-boom" sound on classics such as "I Walk the Line" and "Folsom Prison Blues." The bulk of the songs here, however, come from Cash's extensive Columbia '58-'86 run, most notably the passionate "Ring of Fire" (co-penned by his future wife, June Carter) and "A Boy Named Sue," his tongue-in-cheek narrative hit. The fourth disc focuses on Cash's many collaborations, presenting the Man in Black paired with everyone from the Carter Family to Bob Dylan to U2. While longtime Cash fans may own many of these recordings, this set is ideal for aficionados of his latter-day American albums who want an excellent overview of his truly legendary history.

Producer: Sam Phillips; Jack Clement; Don Law; Frank Jones; Bob Johnson; Johnny Cash

Artist Overview

The original "man in black," Johnny Cash originally auditioned as a gospel singer for Sun Records before developing his distinctive "boom chicka boom" sound. A series of iconic singles, most notably "I Walk the Line" and "Ring of Fire," made Cash a household name. The darker edge of his material resonated with the emerging rock audience as well as country fans, and in 1968 Columbia released At Folsom Prison, one of the most acclaimed live recordings of all time. During the late '80s, with his country hits receding, Cash toured with Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson as the Highwaymen. By the early '90s, he struggled to land a deal in Nashville (the town dominated by new country), but his renaissance came via the outstanding American Recordings series, sparse masterpieces produced by Rick Rubin. ~ Rovi Staff

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (No. 985, p.82)
- 4.5 out of 5 stars - "...even without his astonishing final chapter, this is a feast of Cash."

Spin (p.107)
- "[T]his four-disc box has all the great old stuff, plus a sprinkling from his Rick Rubin-produced renaissance."

Uncut (p.132)
- 5 stars out of 5 - "Prolific, restless, ambitious and contradictory, Cash became a genre unto himself, swerving from rockabilly to gospel, drug-addled outlawry to staunch moralism, homespun folk to grand Nashville productions."
