The Legend marks the first ever career-spanning retrospective of legendary country singer Johnny Cash, featuring a comprehensive collection of work from 1955 – 2002. Beginning his career as an outlaw to the Nashville establishment, Johnny Cash has come to define country music over the last 40 years with his unique blend of hillbilly, gospel and blues.
Dramatizing his greatest music strengths, this deluxe limited edition collection commanded a visual retrospective that brought to life the depth and breadth of Cash’s world-renowned repertoire and persona.
Working closely with Legacy Recordings and Sony Music’s Global archives, we retrieved and re-imagined a wealth of unseen images, lithograph portraits and content, down to the black surface of the discs enclosed in honor of the Man in Black’s unique persona. Finally, we presented this deserving tribute in a 120-page hardback book, a rare and treasured possession for avid music collectors.
The Legend was awarded a Grammy© for Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package, and certified Gold by the RIAA.
