Johnny Cash was born during the great depression into a poor family in Arkansas. At a very young age he worked on the family farm and experienced many of life's struggles. This is also the time he would develop his love for music, family and the Bible, which followed him closely throughout his long career.

In the early fifties after spending time in the Air Force, he moved to Memphis, became friends with folks like Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis, and ultimately cut some sides at Sun Studios which became the catalyst that would kick-start the beginnings of a soon to be worldwide superstar, troubadour and humanitarian unlike the world has ever known.

The folks at Columbia Records knew that this young fellow named Johnny Cash was destined for super stardom. They quickly signed the legend to a long term deal, and his first singles like his "Guess Things Happen That Way" & "Hey Porter" etched "The Man In Black" trademark to his name.

In 1971 after many chart topping country and pop albums and a bevy of hit singles and Grammy Awards, more fame followed as the brass at Columbia Records honored their journeyman Johnny Cash with his 2nd greatest hits collection, the gold and platinum smash "Johnny Cash's Greatest Hits Volume II."

The album was a blockbuster as it hit the Top 5 in the charts, making this a crossover hit with both country and pop audiences, proving once again that his career was of historic merit. Filled with more hits than a roadside jukebox, the amazing album features his biggest hits like the groundbreaking "Folsom Prison Blues" and his Shel Silverstein classic "A Boy Named Sue." The classic top charter duet with June Carter Cash "If I Were A Carpenter" is also included, followed up by one of his finest interpretations of his dear friend Kris Kristofferson's "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down".

More treasures follow with the country belter "Big River" and Cash’s gospel smash of "Daddy Sang Bass", which truly continues the treasure trove of hits contained in this masterwork.

In total, the album showcases eleven important Johnny Cash recordings which have truly gone on to become international classics for all time.
