• johnny cash Change of Address - the Singles As & Bs 1958-1962 (CD, £7.95)

    This unique compilation presents the A- and B-sides of Johnny Cash’s first sixteen singles for Columbia Records, after joining the label from Sun, during the Summer of 1958. Much of this material finds Cash in a transitional phase, evolving from the sparse “boom-chicka-boom” simplicity of his earlier Sun hits to the fuller, richer arrangements and the carefully-crafted ‘story’ songs which began to feature on his concept albums during the 1960s. Eighteen of these thirty-two sides made the US Country and/or Pop charts. This set features a number of Cash’s career signature songs, e.g. ‘All Over Again’, ‘Don’t Take Your Guns To Town’, ‘I Still Miss Someone’, ‘I Got Stripes’, ‘Five Feet High And Rising’, ‘Forty Shades Of Green’, ‘Tennessee Flat Top Box’, ‘The Big Battle’, ‘Busted’ and ‘Send A Picture Of Mother’. Also included are a handful of hard-to-find rarities, most notably the 45rpm edits of ‘Loading Coal’ and ‘Goin’ To Memphis’, which are unavailable elsewhere on CD.
