Two Original Sun Albums on Colored Vinyl!
From the minute he walked into Sun Studios, Johnny Cash began a career that would see him become one of the biggest and most influential musicians of all time. Though only on Sun from 1955-58, Johnny made some of his most legendary recordings there including 1957's With His Hot and Blue Guitar and 1958's Sings The Songs That Made Him Famous.
A gritty masterpiece, With His Hot and Blue Guitar was not only Cash's debut, it was also the first full-length LP released by Sun. Its 12 tracks include one side of his debut, single "Cry, Cry, Cry," along with two of his best-known recordings, "Folsom Prison Blues" and "I Walk the Line." Backed by The Tennessee Two (Luther Perkins on guitar and Marshall Grant on bass), the tracks are spare, direct and intense with Cash's distinctive "boom-chicka" rhythm guitar work and commanding baritone steering the ship throughout.
Cash's second album, Sings The Songs That Made Him Famous, was a smashing success, with wall-to-wall classic singles such as "I Walk The Line," "Ballad of a Teenage Queen," "Big River" and "Guess Things Happen That Way" shooting to the top of the charts and earning 'The Man In Black' a reputation as one of country's finest and fastest rising songwriters and performers. He's once again accompanied by the spare yet driving sounds of The Tennessee Two with the expert production coming courtesy of Sun founder Sam Phillips and Jack Clement.
