This budget-line collection is only one of the hundreds of Johnny Cash compilations and best-ofs that have been released over the Man in Black's lengthy career. It offers basic versions of the hits "I Walk the Line" and "Folsom Prison Blues," and is filled out with alternate recordings of Cash catalog tracks that often waver in the fidelity department. Legend of Johnny Cash will certainly do the job for a casual fan, but given the depth and variety of Cash collections that exist, it should be no more than an impulse truck-stop purchase.
