Ring Of Fire: The Best Of Johnny Cash
by Johnny Cash
Released: Jan 1963
Label: Columbia Nashville Legacy
Because this compilation came out in '63, some big hits are missing -- mainly because they weren't yet penned. (Cash had yet to record such epics as "A Boy Named Sue" or Will Oldham's "I See A Darkness.") That's not to say any of these cuts are misses. Early Outlaw anthems such as the much-covered "Ring of Fire" and the lovelorn "I Still Miss Someone" are included.
