Gargantuan Johnny Cash Box Set Due in October

Columbia Records will release a giant Johnny Cash box set in October chronicling the artist’s career with the label. Johnny Cash: The Complete Columbia Album Collection is a whopping 63-disc set that begins in 1958, when Cash was 26 years old.

The set will feature 35 albums being released on CD for the first time, as well as two records that are exclusive to the collection, Johnny Cash With His Hot & Blue Guitar and The Singles. The latter is a two-disc recording that contains 55 singles not originally included on albums, plus guest performances on albums by Bob Dylan, The Carter Family, Willie Nelson and Shel Silverstein, just to name a few.

The set also includes several rarities with three live albums that were released outside the U.S.: Johnny Cash pa Osteraker, recorded at Osteraker Prison in Sweden in 1972, Strawberry Cake, recorded at the Palladium in London in 1975, and Koncert V Praze, recorded at the Sport Hall in Prague in 1978.

Two original motion picture soundtracks are included as well with I Walk the Line (which starred Gregory Peck) and Little Fauss And Big Halsy (which starred Robert Redford).

The centerpiece of the set is Cash’s first 19 albums (spanning from 1958 to 1967), for the first time in mono sound on CD. Each album is packaged as a mini-LP CD with its original artwork.

The box set hits will be available on Oct. 30
