AllMusic Review by

Though far from comprehensive, even as a document of Cash's Sun years, Original Golden Greats contains no filler and most of the essentials, but remains too brief at only 11 tracks. It may be acceptable as a brief overview, as the classic early Cash sound is well-documented, but completists would probably want to invest the extra cash and pick up Bear Family's Up Through the Years for a more complete picture of his formative recordings.
