Recorded and released between 1994 and 2010, the American Recordings series was seen as a turning point in Johnny Cash's career. Originally released as an output for him to produce a series of covers and unreleased work, the Rick Rubin produced albums will now be available as deluxe vinyl boxset.

All six records, 'American Recordings', 'American Recordings II: Unchained', 'American Recordings III: Solitary Man', 'American Recordings IV: The Man Comes Around', 'American Recordings V: A Hundred Highways' and 'American Recordings VI: Ain’t No Grave', will be repackaged with all original artwork on 180g vinyl and housed an a new minimally designed box.

The albums have been considered as some of the best of his career and gave a new lease of life to the country star before his eventual death in 2003.

The 'Johnny Cash American Recordings LP Box Set' willl be released on 11 May via USM, and you can listen once again to his uncompromising cover of Nine Inch Nails' 'Hurt' from 'American IV' in the player below.
