The budget-line Hits collection contains re-recordings of Johnny Cash's biggest hits, including "Ring of Fire," "Guess Things Happen That Way," "I Walk the Line" and "Get Rhythm." Cash recorded these in the '80s during his unsuccessful tenure at Mercury, and several of his disappointments for Mercury are interspersed on the collection. While nothing here is horrendous, nothing is particularly inspired, and anyone purchasing Hits in the hopes of obtaining a Cash retrospective will be sorely disappointed.
