    Before his death in 2003, Johnny Cash spent almost a decade recording an extensive selection of his career hits, outtakes, and historical tracks with famed producer Rick Rubin. The resultant collection of 79 songs was released as a five disc set titled Unearthed, just two months after Cash's death. On November 3, all 79 songs will be available for the first time ever on vinyl, spread across nine 180-gram LP's.

    The box set is made up of two cloth bound books in a black cloth case. The first houses the nine LP's, while the second is a coffee table book that includes 60 pages of interview liner notes, commentary by both Cash and Rubin on every song on the albums, and photographs taken during the recording sessions that led to the collection.

    The original set was split into five general categories to maintain a similar feel for each disc. Who's Gonna Cry featured 18 solo acoustic recordings of traditional songs and tracks Cash had stashed in his back catalog over his lengthy career. Trouble In Mind had a more modern feel, produced with electric instruments and featuring performances alongside guests such as Tom Petty, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and members of the Cash family. Disc 3, Redemption Songs, again featured an acoustic Cash but backed by a full band. The fourth disc, My Mother's Hymn Book, focuses mostly Christian spirituals and hymns that Cash learned from his mother while growing up in the South. The final disc was titled The Best of Cash on American, and collected the best songs from Cash's previous four records released while signed with American Recordings.

    The Unearthed box set is available for pre-order now on Amazon, and will ship November 3.
