Admittedly, I was one of the last arrivals on the Johnny Cash bandwagon. My introduction, aside from the major hits ("Ring of Fire," "I Walk the Line," "Folsom Prison Blues," "A Boy Named Sue"), came from Rick Rubin, and what I still think is one of the greatest artist/producer collaborations of my lifetime - the American Recordings series.
The 121 songs (!) on this set should take months to fully absorb and appreciate. I can hardly wait.
Thank you to my understanding and patient family, and Merry Christmas, everyone.
