Reviews :

"These 17 songs are offered with no information, but they are, in fact, some of the cornerstone songs and recordings of Johnny Cash's long and remarkable career. Set opener "Hey, Porter!" for instance, was his first recording for Sam Phillips and Sun Records.

Many of these songs have become American classics--"I Walk the Line," "Get Rhythm," and "Folsom Prison Blues" being three instantly recognizable numbers. "Luther Played the Boogie" pays tribute to Luther Perkins, who was part of Cash's first band and instrumental in shaping his combo sound (Perkins perished in a fire less than a decade after his seminal recordings first appeared). This is another in the numerous sets which serve as helpful introductions into Cash's voluminous output--THE SUN YEARS, THE ESSENTIAL JOHNNY CASH (1955-1983), and THE VINTAGE YEARS (1955-1963) being three more." AllMusic Review by AllMusic

 

Ultra Analog™ : The GAIN 2 Ultra Analog™ Series stems from the use of the Gain 2 system, mastered at half speed from the original master tapes where possible, capturing and uncovering as before undiscovered sonic information.

 

Half-speed mastering. In half-speed mastering, the whole process is slowed down to half of the original speed. A typical 33 1/3 rpm record is cut at 16 2/3 rpm. The source material is also slowed down (reducing the pitch in the process) meaning the final record will still sound normal when played back. Slowing the whole process down allows more time, which means the end result sounds better and is more efficient — allowing engineering to minimize the effects of inherent limitations within the vinyl format. The result is a more accurate and more open high-frequency response in the half speed vinyl when compared with a normal speed recording.
