The legendary Johnny Cash turns 70 this year and it's going to take the entire year to celebrate his enormous accomplishments!

First up is the release of The Essential Johnny Cash, a 36-song 2-CD chronicle of Cash's long career, at Sun Records, Columbia, and Mercury, the first time his four-decades of recordings have been collected in one package. Songs include a mono version of "Hey, Porter", "Ring of Fire", "Jackson", "The Night Hank Williams Came To Town" written with Waylon Jennings, and "The Wanderer" performed by U2 with vocals by Mr. Cash.

In late April, Mr. Cash will receive the prestigious Medal of Arts, established by Congress in 1984 and honors individuals and organizations who, in the judgement of the U.S. President, are deserving of special recognition by reason of their outstanding contributions to the excellence, growth, support and availability of the arts in the United States.

American Milestones will also release expanded editions of five vintage Johnny Cash albums, drawn from some 80 albums recorded for Columbia between 1958 and 1993. / Issue 28 - September 5594
