Country music legend Johnny Cash's Mercury Records catalog is being revisited for the first time ever with the comprehensive collection The Complete Mercury Recordings 1986-1991.

In the mid-1980s as Johnny Cash found himself between labels, Mercury Records snatched up the country legend for what would end up being a prolific string of six albums in five years. The records, released from 1986 to 1991, were a diverse collection that included a notable reunion with fellow Sun Records alumni Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins, star-studded collaborations with Paul McCartney and Linda McCartney, Glen Campbell, Waylon Jennings, Emmylou Harris, Hank Williams Jr. and others, inspired takes on songs from Elvis Costello, Guy Clark and Harry Chapin, the Man in Black revisiting his classic hits, and some of the finest songs ever written by Cash. Despite the quality of material, Cash's stint with Mercury has never been revisited-until now.

The Complete Mercury Recordings 1986-1991 features the entire output of Johnny Cash's Mercury Recordings. The box set contains six albums across 7LPs in total including Class Of '55: Memphis Rock & Roll Homecoming, Johnny Cash Is Coming To Town, Water From The Wells Of Home, Classic Cash: Hall Of Fame Series, Boom Chicka Boom, and The Mystery Of Life.
