Personnel: Johnny Cash (vocals, guitar); Bob Wootton (guitar); Jim Soldi (guitars, dobro, synthesizer, background vocals); Jack Hale Jr. (harmonica, trumpet, French horn); Bob Lewin (trumpet, synthesizer); Earl P. Ball (piano); Jimmy Tittle (bass, background vocals). Additional personnel: Terry McMillian (harmonica), Matt Rollings (organ), Bryan "Bongo" O'Hanlon (percussion). Recorded at GCN Recording Studio, Berry Hill Sound, Nashville. This collection is part of Polygram's Hall Of Fame Series and features 20 of Johnny's hit songs recorded in 1988. These are not the original performances. Includes liner notes by Tom T. Hall. Born in Arkansas, Johnny Cash began his musical career in the early 50s, following his discharge from the Army. Cash developed his sound with Luther Perkins (lead guitar) and Marshall Grant (bass). Their debut, 'Hey Porter'/'Cry, Cry, Cry', emerged in 1955 on Sun Records followed by 'Folsom Prison Blues' and 'I Walk The Line'. In 1958 Carl Perkins' drummer, W.S. Holland, joined and Cash switched to Columbia Records, on which his 'Don't Take Your Guns To Town' sold half a million. Cash married June Carter in 1968 and they had several hit duets. Solo, Cash recorded At Folsom Prison which remains his best album and a contender for the best country record of all time. Shel Silverstein gave him 'A Boy Named Sue', which became Cash's only Top 10 pop hit. Cash has recorded many religious albums including The Gospel Road, with Kris Kristofferson, Larry Gatlin, and the Statler Brothers. Cash moved to Mercury Records in 1986 and found success immediately with 'The Night Hank Williams Came To Town' and an all-star album, Water From The Wells Of Home, with Emmylou Harris, the Everly Brothers, Paul McCartney. His contribution to country music is inestimable.
