This is an attempt by a life-long fan to track down, pull together and place all known Johnny Cash 7″ single and EP releases into a unique database, which I hope to present in an informative, meaningful and manageable order.

I’ve tried to be as accurate as possible in compiling this database. Only releases that I have knowledge about have been included. I am sure that there are more releases out there that I haven’t come across yet. I would really appreciate hearing from you if you have any information that can help complete this database.

Please use the buttons at the top of the page to navigate through the site.

This will be a ‘living document’ and as such, additions/amendments will be made along the way as and when new information is known. Check back periodically for updates. (for ease of reference, the most recent will be listed immediately below.)

If you have any comments, corrections, additions, or constructive criticism to offer about the database, please get in touch with me. All information submitted in a kindly spirit will be welcomed.
