There have been in the neighborhood of ten CD box sets devoted to Johnny Cashreleased on Columbia, Bear Family, and Collectables this does not count overseas releases by Sony, or budget-line repackagings of three albums into one box set. Since there have been roughly 15 new major-label compilations, and that number balloons to nearly 90 comps if various and sundry two-fers, budget-line releases, and imports are factored into the equation.
Sure, it's the first set to run the entire length of his career, from tobut that statement in itself is a little misleading, suggesting that there's a significant sampling from his Rick Rubin -produced comeback recordings for American Records in the '90s, but that's not the case.
While this is familiar, this is by no means bad, since the music is not only good, but it's presented in an interesting manner, with each disc following a theme that's a little looser than Columbia's previous box, Love, God, Murder. In any case, both Luther Played The Boogie - Johnny Cash - Country Legend the first two discs are good listens, filled with many of Cash 's biggest hits and best songs.
But even with the fourth disc being kind of weak, the other three are strong, which means this rivals Columbia's previous box set, 's The Essential Johnny Cash as the best multi-disc retrospective of Cash 's Borradita Diente De Oro - Yolanda Del Rio - The Best Of Yolanda Del Rio career.
That doesn't mean it's perfect -- that fourth disc won't be played much, some may gripe that it doesn't contain much from the '80s or '90s, and some big songs like "The Rebel Johnny Yuma" are MIA -- but Cash recorded so much and so much of it was not only good, but popular, that it's hard to whittle it down to one set, even if it does stretch out over four discs.
The Legend does a very good job presenting the biggest and best of the prime of Johnny Cash 's career -- enough to make it a Luther Played The Boogie - Johnny Cash - Country Legend comprehensive introduction for the Ljuba Lukić - Ti Si Moja Dozivotna Robija who want more than what the many, many very good single- or double-disc sets have to offer, enough to make it a nice overview for the casual fan who wants one set with much of his best in one place.
But if you already have one or two Johnny Cash comps in your collection, think long and hard before picking this up, and if you have five, ten, or 20 Cash discs, you don't even need to consider adding this to your collection: you have almost all of this already and the packaging, while nice, isn't enough to make this necessary.
