Music Masters, The: Johnny Cash - The Man in Black
Johnny Cash was one of the most imposing and influential figures in country music history. His distinctive voice scored him over 100 hit singles in the USA and made him into one of country's biggest stars of the 50's, 60's and 70's.
The legendary Sun Studios was the birthplace of Cash's career with his first single being released in 1955, his last release was 45 years later in 2000.
Cash passed away in 2003 just four months after his wife and fellow songwriter June carter died.
These early recordings of Johnny Cash show his raw talent and early appeal. Look out for a rare display of humor with his parody of Elvis Presley on "Heartbreak Hotel."
