    Amazon has it released on March 24th

  2. AlexKx says:

    There is no reason for these books to be so thin. That both goes to this and everyone else such as Bowie, Queen, and whomever else who did not even have books in their vinyl box sets such as Bon Jovi and Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers. I guess they decide that their fans are illiterate and oblivious that there are a bazillion photographs of these artists and that new artwork could be done as well! Oh, well! I think The Beatles probably did alright with theirs but I will have to look back at that…

  3. AlexKx says:

    Couldn’t this all be put on five discs instead? Aren’t they about thirty minutes running time anyway? Except for the last one. Psssh.

    • CJ Feeney says:

      I agree, especially when you see the repetitiveness in the track listings. If they had all the original albums in replica covers, then I could see the point in having such short CDs.

  4. AlexKx says:

    Weak and pathetic! But I’m getting it anyway! Lol! Thanks for letting me and or us know about it SuperDeluxeEdition! You all still rock and kick arse by default because there is no one else who does what you all do! Lol! I hope you all do not mind the backhanded compliment! Life’s a bitch and then you die! It’s all for and about LOVE! :)

  5. Stefano says:

    does anyone know if this edition is more complete and sounds better than “Complete Sun Masters” on Charly Records?

  6. Friso Pas says:

    It seems to have more tracks than the previous Charly boxset, which I don’t have yet.
    Just got a great deal on the Complete Columbia Albums Collection 2 weeks ago. With this set I think I’m completing my Cash collection for sure.
    I actually never mind the one album per cd strategy, although I probably would prefer the appropriate bonus tracks on the particular discs.
    Looks like a really nice set, which I’m buying, as soon as our SDL host mails me a deal alert of this.

  7. Joachim says:

    Sorry folks, concerning Cash early recordings everything is said and done by Bear Family Records Man in Black boxes. Here is the box containing the sun sessions, complete and remastered: https://www.bear-family.de/cash-johnny-man-in-black-1954-58-vol.1-5-cd.html. It ‘s a little more money, but the books in the BF Cash boxes are all great.

  8. AlexKx says:

    Son of a bitch! I’ll have to get that too! :)

  9. Mark Parsons says:

    Varese Sarabande’s ‘The Original Sun Albums’ from 2005 (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Original-Sun-Albums-Johnny-Cash/dp/B0009IW8Y4) included all 7 Sun albums, plus a total of 35 non-album tracks, adjoined to their corresponding albums, on a 7 CD set, each in its own jewel case in a card slip case and with fairly minimal documentation.

  10. Kevin Barrett says:

    Once again, where’s the vinyl edition? Quite enough of this CD nonsense …

  11. Nick Preece says:

    You would have thought they’d have released this on vinyl! I’ll wait until they do!

  12. Friso Pas says:

    That Bear box looks indeed nice, Joachim. But it’s a sequential release, with all recordings sequenced on recording date, not presented as albums. I’ll look into it. Too bad it’s hard to find out what that booklet looks like inside.
    Still, this upcoming release also looks very promising. I kinda like the album format on this set.
