AllMusic Review by

Sony/Legacy's Box Set Series presents this four-disc anthology of country legend Johnny Cash. This is the exact same collection that appeared in 2009 in a more concise three disc version and again features the remastering work of engineer Vic Anesini. Like other country legends of his ilk, Cash was an extremely prolific recording artist throughout his lifetime, and this 45-song set covers most of his major commercial hits and best-known work spanning from his Sun Records years in the mid-'50s through his 1983 cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Highway Patrolman." Cash's catalog has been well-documented over the years and there are certainly other sets that go deeper, but this is a nice budget-friendly way to own good-sounding recordings of his major songs.
