Originally released in 1959, The Fabulous Johnny Cash was the Man in Black’s third album and his first for the Columbia label. By this time, the twenty-seven year old Cash was already a major country music star, with four number one hits under his belt. This LP gave Cash two more hits with “Don’t Take Your Guns To Town” (which also climbed to number 1) and “Frankie’s Man, Johnny” (which came in at number 9). His last Top Ten hit would not be until two decades later in 1979.
