I have to agree with the first review on this site -- I did wonder how well the people interviewed on "Johnny Cash: The Anthology" knew him, if at all, but they were certainly right on about the quality of his talent and his music.

There is a supplement on the disc which is a biography of sorts, but the main part is a series of sound bytes and Cash singing in performance at different times of his life. Didn't matter when or where, he was tremendous. Tremendously musical, deep feeling, a beautiful voice, and very charismatic - it's no wonder Sam Phillips, the man who discovered Elvis, discovered him as well. Phillips had an ear for the unusual, and Cash was certainly special.

There are also duets with June Carter Cash, another fabulous talent.

The Man in Black makes this disc worth seeing, but don't expect much from the interviews except when the people are talking about his music. And really, who cares about anything else? His music tells us as much bout him as anything else.
