2018 Remastered audiophile edition of the classic Sun album on heavyweight vinyl the first 1,000 LPs on Limited Magneta vinyl

The comprehensive remastering and repackaging upgrade of the Man In Black’s legendary Sun catalogue continues with the release of Johnny Cash’s seventh and final album for Sun Records. Long after Cash’s acrimonious departure for Columbia Records in 1958, Sun’s release of ‘Original Sun Sound of Johnny Cash’ proved that they still had a catalogue of high-quality unreleased Cash material, with four new songs: “New Mexico”, “Goodnight Irene”, “Always Alone” and “Two Timin’ Woman”. In fact, Sun had released the leanest, most accomplished album in the Cash canon. The record also featured Cash’s perhaps careerdefining single “Big River”, which reached No. 4 in the country charts in 1958 and shows off his instinctive poetic ability.

Complete with sleeve notes by noted Sun Records authority Adam Komorowski and president of Sun Entertainment Corporation John Singleton, this LP has been remastered from the original Sun master tapes by Nick Robbins at Soundmastering Studios and cut to lacquers at half-speed for unrivalled sound quality by Barry Grint at Alchemy Mastering in London.

The Johnny Cash reissue series has been personally overseen by Singleton in Nashville and Charly Records founder Jean-Luc Young, continuing the long relationship between the companies begun by Shelby Singleton and Young over 40 years ago.

“We applaud and congratulate Charly Records for ensuring Johnny Cash’s legendary Sun catalogue continues to be available on the quality formats his music deserves, especially on newly remastered vinyl for the seven LPs that were originally released by Sun Records in the late fifties and early sixties.” – John Singleton (Sun Entertainment Corporation)

“Charly Records have outdone themselves with this current Cash refresh. From first reveal of the meticulously reproduced physical product to that needle-onwax moment, it’s clear that the team behind the magic here know their onions. It’s a series that’s destined to enthrall any recent arrivals to Cash’s oaky tones and add extra sonic dimensions for the diehards, while giving audiophiles a timely fix.” – Long Live Vinyl
