AllMusic Review by

The Many Sides Of Johnny Cash: 36 All-Time Greatest Hits is a budget-priced, three-disc collection that contains some of Cash's best-known songs, including "Folsom Prison Blues," "I Walk the Line, " "Daddy Sang Bass, " "I Still Miss Someone, " "A Boy Named Sue, " and "Don't Take Your Guns to Town." Though there are many big hits, several classics are missing, including most of his Sun hits, at the expense of inexplicable inclusions like "Theme from Bonanza." As a result, it is a compilation that is useful only for very casual fans--the three-disc The Essential Johnny Cash 1955-1983 is a more thorough and satisfying multi-disc collection, and is by far a better value.
