Johnny Cash All Aboard The Blue Train Original Sun Sound CD
The Oscar winning biopic 'Walk The Line', and the continued success of the recordings he made with Rick Rubin for American Records, means that Johnny Cash's iconic status remains as strong as ever despite his death in 2003.
 
It was at Sam Phillip's legendary Sun Records however that Johnny Cash came to prominence, pioneering a style of country that was all his own and in the fullness of time turned him into one of the giants of the country music scene.
 
Here presented together on a single CD for the first time are two of the seven Johnny Cash albums released by the original Sun label, his sixth album, 'All Aboard The Blue Train' from 1962, and his last Sun album, 'Original Sun Sound', released in 1964. 
 
This unique reissue includes the hard-to-find overdubbed versions of several songs which were made and used for the original album releases, including 'I Walk The Line', 'Folsom Prison Blues' and 'Give My Love To Rose'.
 
The album also features ten bonus tracks taken from 'Johnny Cash Sings Hank Williams', effectively making this three albums on one CD reissue.
 
The 34 featured tracks provide an excellent overview of Johnny Cash's Sun era. As well as including many of his hits, including 'Big River', 'I Love You Because', 'Oh, Lonesome Me' and 'Mean Eyed Cat', they feature several of his lesser-known gems.
