In 1986, after almost 30 years on Columbia Records, Country music legend Johnny Cash released his first album on Mercury Records – Class Of ’55, in collaboration with fellow Sun Records alumni Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. Seven years later, his last recording before signing with Rick Rubin’s American Recordings would be another collaboration, The Wanderer, with U2. In the years that span those recordings, Johnny Cash released a total of six albums for Mercury Records. 

The highlights of that output are presented here, on the brand new compilation Easy Rider: The Best Of The Mercury Recordings. Now remastered for the very first time, using the original Mercury master tapes, the 24 tracks that make up the set feature Cash’s updated interpretations of classics songs Get Rhythm and Tennessee Flat Top Box, the rare B-side Veteran’s Day, Elvis Costello’s The Big Light, and his collaboration with U2, The Wanderer. Featuring brand new liner notes by music writer Scott Schinder, Easy Rider represents the very first collection of Johnny Cash’s Mercury Records recording career.
