Synopsis

Amazon.com
A more affordable alternative to the three-CD Essential package, The Man in Black is a well-chosen, double-disc collection that includes a good number of Cash's highlights, but leaves behind the accoutrements of the box set (no liner notes, discographical info, and so on). On the other hand, it includes various cuts--duets with Dylan, Kristofferson, and the Highwaymen for example--that Essential leaves off, although Essential does a more-thorough job of sampling the Sun years and the prison records. As a summary of Cash's many frames of mind, this compilation is not a bad place to start at all. --Marc Greilsamer

CD Reviews

An americn original!!
pspa | Boston, MA USA | 02/27/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This magnificent 2 CD set would almost be worth the price just for the immortal words at the beginning of the first track, Hello, I'm Johnny Cash, which of course is how he began his famous concert at Folsom Prison, with an extraordinary version of Folsom Prison Blues that is even better than the original. The great songs are here: I Walk the Line, Ring of Fire, Big River, Sunday Morning Coming Down, Jackson, and there is so much more, including a remarkable duet with none other than Bob Dylan, and a couple of tracks with Waylon Jennings. The distinctive, macho, voice of Johnny Cash and his guitar strumming are American institutions, and I maintain that noone in country music has ever topped him."

"This CD has eveything you are looking for. All the songs I used to hear on 8 track at my grandma's house as a kid. The sound quality was great and I highly reccommend this addition to anyone's collection."
