New Johnny Cash CD

The Columbia-Legacy label has announced a new CD release by Johnny Cash. Coming out this year, it is the first record since last year to contain unissued material by Cash, whose last studio album "American VI: Ain't No Grave" appeared in 2010. The new CD, entitled "Bootlegs 2: From Memphis to Hollywood" contains unissued takes, rare singles and a radio show from Cash's early years at Sun and Columbia.

I have a feeling this is only the first of many many more to come. CBS/SONY knows that the Cash Recording Legacy is worth a whole lot to them, though they didn't treat him so well during the last years they had him.

Yes, I agree with the last post.Columbia Records/Sony Music Group treated Johnny Cash so rotten,they actually dropped him from the label. This was a rude side to the business, that most people don't see. This was the worst treatment of a Recording Legend I've ever heard! (Maybe the dumping of Buddy Holly by his label was second!)
If I had the opportunity NOT to buy the Columbia CD----I WOULD.
