Johnny Cash Sun Records collection out next month

Charly Records have announced the release of a new rather lovely looking Johnny Cash box set – The Original Sun Albums 1957-1964 will arrive on 8 CDs with all kinds of extras on April 28th 2017. The release celebrates the 60th anniversary of the release of Johnny Cash’s first album in 1957, presenting for the first time all 7 classic Cash Sun albums in one collection, comprising 83 songs as they appeared on the original LPs, plus a bonus disc of alternate versions, rare recordings and outtakes, all newly remastered from the original Sun master tapes. Also included are every Johnny Cash 7-inch single A & B side originally released on Sun Records.

The set features a deluxe 60-page hardback book, which reproduces original album artwork, liner notes and labels, and includes rare photos and memorabilia from the Sun Records archives, as well as a Johnny Cash career retrospective, in-depth album sleeve notes, rare recordings track-by-track, discography, Sam Phillips’ recollections, and an introduction by Sun Entertainment Corporation President, John A Singleton.
