This advent to the male in Black"s magazine is around as good a one as can be uncovered on one disc, primarily because the 21 standard tracks expectations J.R. Cash"s whole career, from his very first rockabilly single, "Hey, Porter"/"Cry! Cry! Cry!" (Sun Records, 1955), come his last far-reaching alt-country tracks (American Recordings, 2003).
