To hear Johnny Cash's swaggering Sun Records-era material is to marvel at one of the primal source-streams of what was fast becoming the headwaters of rock 'n' roll. Cash's craggy, lunch bucket vocals on gleaming original versions of songs like "Cry, Cry, Cry," "Get Rhythm," "Big River" and "I Walk The Line," backed by the signature guitar style of Luther Perkins and Marshall Grant's steady bass, are really just the tip of the iceberg corralled on this 180-gram double LP. "Folsom Prison Blues," "Hey Porter" and "So Doggone Lonesome" - and plenty more just as exciting - are rock-solid cornerstones of the Johnny Cash legend, an edifice that will stand as long as the pharoh's pyramids.

1950s recordings; mono of course - but the sound quality was really surprising - I had a very young Johnny Cash in my front room with me! Well worth the investment.
