Johnny Cash fans will want to add the new Johnny Cash — Complete Columbia Album Collection to their Christmas wish lists this year. The box set includes 59 albums on 63 CDs spanning Cash’s 1958 Columbia debut, The Fabulous Johnny Cash, through 1990’s Highwayman 2 release with Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson.
Thirty-five of the albums are being released for the first time in the U.S., including one documenting a 1978 concert in Prague. Each album features the fully restored artwork and liner notes. The box set also includes a compilation collecting Cash’s singles from Sun Records, such as “I Walk the Line” and “Folsom Prison Blues,” as well as another disc rounding up his non-album Columbia singles and guest appearances on other artists’ albums.
Johnny Cash — The Ultimate Columbia Album Collection will be in stores October 30. There’s no official word on the suggested retail price but as of Monday, Amazon.com was offering the set for pre-order for just over $269.
