by James Christopher Monger

Released in 1999, The Very Best of Johnny Cash compiles 50 of the Man in Black's greatest recordings for the legendary Sun label, including "Big River," "Hey Porter," "Cry Cry Cry," "I Walk the Line," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Get Rhythm," and "Guess Things Happen That Way." As far as budget-priced sets go, this no-frills two-disc anthology from the Charly label really delivers the goods.
