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.
