From his first recordings in the mid-fifties up until his death in 2003, Johnny Cash has shelled out some of the finest hits in pop music history. His excellent stylings have made him universally accepted by many - I generally don't like country music, but Cash is a huge exception to that rule. Over the years, Cash has had a number of hits compilations (he has more hits compilations than many artists have studio albums!) Now, the Essential collection tries its hand at capturing Cash in a two-disc hits compilation. How does this compilation measure up? Read on and find out!
-If you're just a casual fan of Cash, and you want a compilation that will give you the big hits of Cash's career, this compilation is a good bet. I Walk The Line, Don't Take Your Guns To Town, Ring Of Fire, The Ballad Of Ira Hayes, Folsom Prison Blues, and A Boy Named Sue are among the hits that you'll find here.
-In addition to the hits, you get a number of underrated masterpieces. Among these are Hey Porter and Get Rhythm, excellent tracks that were originally B-Sides.
-Many of the tracks on here are collaborations with other excellent artists. Among the artists Cash performs with on here are Bob Dylan, Marty Robbins, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, U2, and even his wife, June Carter Cash.
-This compilation is readily available in a number of stores, so you shouldn't have to look too hard for it.
-Obviously, two-disc compilations cost more than single-disc ones.
-The major complaint I have is that there is no material on here from Cash's four albums on the American label. This really bites, because as another reviewer stated, his cover of the Nine Inch Nails song Hurt is nothing short of excellent, and it has been getting a lot of popularity.

Some years ago I heard Johnny Cash on the U2 tune "The Wanderer", and thought he had a wonderful voice and "poise" about him. Unfortunately, it took me until he died and I saw him sing on TV before I bought this album -and I was really impressed!
This does not sound at all like "traditional" Country, and in fact, the Nashville music scene agreed with this for years, as they wouldn't play Cash on country music radio -Why?
Well, I would say this music sounds like a bluesy/gospely folk music that just didn't fit the mold at the time.
So if you are not a big Country Music fan, but you do like blues, gospel, or folk singing, you will very likely enjoy this album.
So many of the songs on this double-album are great, that I will only mention my absolute favorite 10 songs (due to space constraints).
"Hey Porter" was his breakthrough, and it is a truly fantastic rhythmic/driving song about riding a train and getting closer and closer to his home in Tennessee, and it sets the tone for the rest of the album.
"I Walk the Line" is his next "hit" and really showcases his deep voice that he became famous for, and I understand became of one Country music's "classic" songs.
I really like "Get Rhythm". It is a "popping" song with a great beat, and it just pulls you along. It seems more like a top 40 song that could have very well been sung by Fats Domino in the 50's! -no surprise then that Little Richard covered it on a Johnny Cash Tribute Album.
"I Guess Things Happen That Way" is such a short poignant piece of music, I am really surprised that it never became a standard at campfires or in movies.

Format: Audio CD
This double-CD version of "The Essential Johnny Cash," not to be confused with a three-CD set with the same title that came out a decade earlier, was issued to commemorate Cash's 70th birthday. Consequently, it has ended up serving as a fitting tribute album to remember the Man in Black who died this month. It provides a more than adequate look at his career from 1955-1993, which, unfortunately, does mean it stops before his brilliant 1994 recording "American Recordings." However, this is a minor point because that is an essential Johnny Cash album in its own right, along with the Sixties albums "At Folsom Prison" and "At San Quentin." However, for someone who discovers that they do not have a Johnny Cash album in their music library, this is certainly a good place to start.
This version of "The Essential Johnny Cash" focuses on the early years, with the vast majority of tracks coming from the 1950s and 1960s. Actually, there is only one track after 1986, which would be "The Wanderer," recorded with U2 in 1993. However, it is hard to argue with covering the first two major peaks in Cash's career like this and to leave the single album assessment of the final renaissance he enjoyed in recent years, exemplified by his cover of Nine Inch Nail's "Hurt," for down the road. The main thing is that you get his signature tunes, "I Walk the Line," Man in Black," and the live version of "A Boy Named Sue" that officially marked his crossover from country to the popular consciousness of American music, as well as his celebrated covers of "If I Were a Carpenter" and his duets with his wife, June Carter Cash, such as "Jackson.
