"I Walk The Line" was one of Johnny's biggest hits early in his career. The guitar work here is great. It really flows along with Johnny's lyrics. A true Cash classic.


"Ring of Fire" was another smash hit for Johnny. It was a love song that Johnny wrote for, as he said years later, someone who's name he forgot.



"Ballad of Ira Hayes" was one of many tributes to the Indians that Johnny recorded in song. Ira Hayes (if you are not familiar with the name) was a Pima Indian. As a Marine during World War II, Ira was one of the seven men that raised the flag on Iwo Jima. The flag raising, along with Ira Hayes, has been immortalized by the Marine Memorial in Washington DC. The song goes on to tell the story of how Ira came home to become an alcoholic and eventually die as an unforgotten hero. This is a really powerful ballad and tribute to an Indian who became a war hero.



"Don't Take Your Guns to Town" tells us about a young cowboy in the old west named Bill. He's planning to go to town and his mother pleads with him not to take his guns. Well, Bill decides he's a man and takes his guns with him anywat. Bill should have listened to his ma, because in the final verse.....well, you can probably guess what happens. With each verse of the song the tempo of the guitars increase, adding to the flavor and drama of the lyrics.

Also included here,  and Nothing is more important than "Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison".

Recorded live in 1968, in front of 2000 inmates, this is a really rockin' concert. Cash relates to the prisoners' lives with songs like   "Folsom Prison Blues" and "A Boy Named Sue" ( both included here)



On most albums there are always one or two tracks you just don't like. This album will NOT be one of them. Every song is a bona fide Johnny Cash classic presentation.
