Cash, Johnny - Come Along and Ride this Train
(Bear Family BCD-15563-DH Ger-91 375:-)

Johnny Cash was one of the first to explore the idea of the concept album in country music. The songs in this exclusive collection were recorded between 1960 and 1977 and were released on seven concept albums, 'Ride This Train', 'Blood, Sweat and Tears', 'Bitter Tears', 'Ballads Of The True West', 'From Sea To Shining Sea', 'America' and 'The Rambler'.

Taken together, these albums are a true and authentic statement of what Johnny Cash was all about, and they came from his most vital and creative period as a singer and songwriter. The songs are Johnny Cash, the quintessential American writing and singing about America.

4-CD boxed set with a 32-page book, 105 tracks.
Cash, Johnny - Man in Black: 1963-69
(Bear Family BCD-15588-F1 Ger-95 600:-)

The third volume in Bear Family's chronological documentation of Johnny Cash's epic career covers the period before Cash became a superstar following the "San Quentin" and "Folsom" albums and his ABC-TV series.

During this period, he almost forsook country for folk music, making some of the most radical and experimental country albums ever recorded, as well as hits like "Understand Your Man", "Orange Blossom Special", and "The One On The Left Is On The Right". It also includes the album 'Keep On The Sunny Side' with The Carter Family, as well as much rare, unreleased material and foreign-language songs.

6-CD boxed set with 47-page book, 152 tracks.
Ken Burns: Country Music
(Sony 593412 EU-19 450:-)

"If you write the truth and you're writing about your life, it's going to be country. It'll be country 'cause you're writing what's happening. And that's all a good song is." Loretta Lynn

COUNTRY MUSIC, the eight-part, 16-hour film by Ken Burns, chronicles the creation of a truly American genre of music through the songs and stories of its greatest trailblazers.

This 5CD set includes more than 100 timeless classics as heard in the film, including songs by The Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, Bill Monroe, Bob Wills, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, Charley Pride, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton and many more. The set also includes 68 pages of liner notes and rarely seen archival photos, documents and memorabilia.
Snow, Hank - The Singing Ranger, vol 2
(Bear Family BCD-15476 Ger-90 300:-)

This 4CD box set picks up from the 1988 Volume One box, and continues to 1958. During these years, Hank Snow became one of the standard-bearers of traditional country against the onslaught of rock 'n' roll. The hits grew fewer but the quality never slacked.

The 112 tracks on this set feature Hank Snow's instrumental albums (including his duets with Chet Atkins), a rare single for the Canadian market (Squid Jiggin' Ground/New Blue Velvet Band), and 23 previously unissued cuts.
