No music meant more to Johny Cash than the simple hymns of his Christian faith. This most complete CD of his gospel recordings -- two dozen tracks spanning the '50s to the '70s -- presents Cash at his most reverent, and includes three previously unreleased performances. The earliest tracks, from 1957, hail from Johnny's Sun Records days, while stops in the '60s include eight songs with the Carter Family. The 1970s were arguably Cash's most reverent period, after his marriage to June Carter and the success of his television show -- nine songs are included from that decade. Of the previously unreleased tracks, two recordings from 1981 feature Marty Stuart on guitar and were produced by Jack Clement, as was the 1974 session that yielded "My Ship Will Sail."
