AllMusic Review by

A mixed bag of highlights from the early part of Johnny Cash's three-year tenure at Sun Records, Very Best Of includes the Hank Williams-influenced "Wide Open Road," as well as Williams' "You Win Again" and Don Gibson's "Oh Lonesome Me," both complete with commercial-sounding backing vocals. Other gems include "Cry! Cry! Cry!," originally the B-side of his first single, "Hey, Porter!," and the stripped-down rockabilly of "Train of Love."
