It still baffles me that a down-sized version of the Elvis set hasn't been released and is widely available. If Sony can release a 63-disc Johnny Cash box, they can also release a 30-disc Elvis box.

Why quit milking the cow as long as it gets? :wink:
If they'd to, this thing would probably still cost at least about 300 - 400 Euros...

I sincerely hope that the CD debut of the vast majority of his 70s and 80s albums will lead to a re-evaluation of them, because I do genuinely feel they are unfairly maligned on the whole (although albums such as Johnny Cash and his Woman deserves all the criticism it gets!)

Edit: Obviously it is worth saying that the above track listing might not be totally accurate - certainly the track listings that appeared for the recent 20 disc set of Elvis albums were not accurate in places - and I notice the Gospel Road albums lists "Help" instead of "Help Me" throughout. From what I remember of that double album, the term "help me" was what I was pleading by the time I got to the end!!!

Even though the tracklisting might not be totally accurate, I don't expect any surprises at all. I hate to say it but I can't stand June Carter's "singing", that's why I almost NEVER listen to the duets, maybe except for "Jackson" or "If I Were A Carpenter".
I am really looking forward to hear all of the 70's albums, I really like the ones I know ("Silver", "Ragged Old Flag", "I Would Like To See You Again" and the ones included on the Bear box).


I have to say I agree for the most part with June Carter, although their chemistry together can be quite sweet. But I can't think of the last time I listened to either of the albums of duets. darlin Companion was a fun addition to the live repertoire though.

June Carter is another case of YokoOnoness in music

Although I must say on the Bear Family issue "It's All In The Family", which includes a solo album of hers, there's one song I actually kinda liked... :wink:

It was a great pairing - a June Carter album paired with one in which Johnny Cash sang about dinosaurs and fire engines!

That's true, it was a really strange decision.

Haven't heard her final album yet, is it worth listening to?

I never thought she could sing when she was younger, so my guess is no! lol

Comparing June to Yoko is harsh and I've never understood what was wrong with Yoko either.

June always said that she wasn't much of a singer. Her sisters Helen and Anita were extremely talented.

True. I have the Bear Family CD "Ring Of Fire" by Anita Carter, but hardly ever listened to it.

It's a great cd. She had an incredible voice. I also like her version of I'm Counting On You.

I have received news from Sony that Johnny Cash: The Complete Columbia Album Collection has been delayed until mid-December.

However you can still pre-order at the Fanzine Store - http://www.johnnycashfanzine.com/store.html

That's going to screw up their plans for that being bought as Christmas presents then. And a delayed release from Sony? never!

Received an advance copy of Johnny Cash The Complete Columbia Album Collection.

A fantastic package with each CD in a reproduction sleeve along with a 200-page book with liner notes, track-by-track details and many rare photos.

A full review will appear in the next issue of the fanzine.

I probably have to cancel my order due to money issues.
Man, it's even cheaper in the UK than over here in Germany (where it's 159,99 Euros right now).

Well, then good luck, Peter! I hope you'll get yours in time also. :smt023

I'm so excited about this release - finally listening to all of the 70's albums I could never lay my hands on... :D
