This German compilation is unusual among the dozens (if not hundreds) of Johnny Cash collections in that it includes tracks from the Man in Black's entire career. Selections from his '50s rockabilly Sun recordings, his live prison shows, the less well-received '70s recordings, and (at the end) his collaboration with U2 ("The Wanderer") are all featured, offering a more complete overview of his entire career. Unfortunately, given the nature of Cash's entire recorded history, some sections of the disc are stronger than others -- the brash and swaggering '50s recordings stand in sharp contrast to his less successful recordings from the '80s, and for every great song like "A Boy Named Sue" and "Girl From the North Country" (with Bob Dylan) there are a handful of tracks ("Hidden Shame," "It Ain't Me Babe") that are relatively tough to get through compared to the really strong stuff. While this makes for an accurate overview (minus his career-reviving American recordings from the '90s), it does tend to drag in places (especially near the end). Still, any Johnny Cash is good Johnny Cash, and there is a certain charm in his pill-addled mid-career recordings, even if they don't match up with his best songs. ~ Zac Johnson
