He became famous by singing country ballads, but the sound he introduced was new and different. Love songs, often flavoured with elements of folk, gospel and rockabilly, touched the hearts of millions and brought him world-wide fame. Sun Records' producer Sam Phillips knew he was getting somebody unique when he signed Cash; he already had a stable of successful artists on his label and did not need another singer. Johnny Cash always had a special interest in trains. From his early Sun recordings to his years at Columbia, he recorded a number of train songs, the best of which are featured here. Enjoy!
