Although he began his career as an outlaw to the Nashville establishment, Johnny Cash has come to literally define and embody country music. At first, his unique mix of hillbilly music with gospel and blues made him a perfect fit at Sam Phillips' Sun Records, where he recorded such classics as "Folsom Prison Blues" and "I Walk The Line."

From there, Johnny signed with Columbia records and embarked on one of the most remarkable musical careers of the twentieth century. Transforming into The Man In Black, Johnny spent more than thirty years reinventing and contradicting himself - breaking all of the rules of traditional country music only to emerge as the ultimate mythic hero and archetype of the genre.

No other artist has touched the world of music quite like Johnny Cash. He is the only person to be inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame, The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and The Songwriter's Hall Of Fame. His very name is synonymous with the fight for the rights of the poor and downtrodden and the image of The Man In Black is as deeply American as the stars and stripes themselves.

1983's Johnny 99 was Cash's second to last release for Columbia before departing for Mercury. Issued at a career lull, the strapping 10-track all covers effort stands as one of his finest outings of the era and includes a pair of heartfelt Bruce Springsteen numbers ("Highway Patrolman," "Johnny 99"), Guy Clark's "New Cut Road," George Jones' "I'm Ragged But Right" and of course the stunning fan favorite "God Bless Robert E. Lee."
