According to a Legacy spokesperson, it will be "the most in-depth collection of Cash's gospel recordings ever assembled". The country crooner frequently performed gospel songs at his shows, including the famous concerts at Folsom Prison and San Quentin, and he allegedly left his original label, Sun Records, when they wouldn't allow him to perform gospel material. Tracks on the new collection include traditional gospel songs such as 'He Turned The Water Into Wine' and '(There'll Be) Peace in The Valley (For Me)', as well as Cash originals 'The Preacher Said "Jesus Said"', and the hit written by Carl Perkins,'Daddy Sang Bass'.

  • With his craggy, flawed voice and songs of craggy, flawed devotion to the Lord, the late Johnny Cash's unique combination of charisma and humility endeared him to both devout and secular audiences. This 24-track compilation harvests the best (arguably) of Cash's country-gospel output, grazing mostly on his mid-career recordings. While he is suitably reverent and low-key on most of the tracks here, a shuffling rendition of "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" finds Cash emoting with an uncharacteristically supple, jazzy looseness that reflects the joy of the song. It is infectious, and a consolation for his absence.

No Depression (pp.88-89) - "Cash was equally at ease singing traditional hymns and more current material....Cash also showed his skills as a gospel songwriter with the Old Testament-based 'Belshazzar'..."
