Johnny Cash / The Complete Mercury Albums 1986-1991 box set

Mercury albums remastered in 7CD or 7LP box set

Johnny Cash‘s five year tenure on Mercury Records in the late 1980s is marked by Johnny Cash: The Complete Mercury Studio Albums (1986-1991) a forthcoming box set available on CD and vinyl.

The 7CD and 7LP vinyl boxes feature six studio albums including 1986’s Class of ’55 recorded with Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins and Water from the Wells of Home which includes collaborations with artists such as Paul McCartney, Emmylou Harris and the Everly Brothers.


Vinyl edition of The Complete Mercury Studios Albums (1986-1991)

1988’s Classic Cash: Hall Of Fame Series also features and in the CD box set comes with a bonus disc featuring Cash’s early mix of the album (‘newly discovered’ from the archive). In the vinyl set the album is a double, but it doesn’t include the early mixes, because that is being released as a standalone release for this year’s Record Store Day. The final album in this box set – 1991’s Mystery of Life features – The Wanderer with U2.

All audio in the CD and vinyl box sets is newly remastered for the first time and new sleeve notes come courtesy of Scott Schinder. You can also buy the remastered vinyl separately – but not the CDs. Finally, a ‘best of’ compilation called Easy Rider: The  Best of the Mercury Years is also being issued on CD and 2LP vinyl, if you don’t want to go for the box sets.

These will all be released on 26 June 2020 (originally 24 April) via UMe/Mercury.
