Rare Johnny Cash in New Book and CD

(Radio.com) This coming Sept. 12 will mark the tenth anniversary of Johnny Cash's death. And among the tributes and accolades that will undoubtedly mark the occasion comes a new book and CD set honoring the country legend.

Hitting bookstores yesterdat, LIFE Unseen: Johnny Cash An Illustrated Biography is a 192-page collection featuring rare and never-before-seen photos of the Man in Black from the archives of Sony Music Entertainment (see a gallery of select photos above).

The book also includes interviews with Cash and his family, including June Carter Cash, and reminiscences by his daughter Rosanne Cash and son John Carter Cash.

"I'd seen a lot of these photographs, but the ones I hadn't seen before were really moving to me," Rosanne Cash said in a press statement about the book. "They weren't just kind of stock Johnny Cash pictures, but showed some side of him, some depth, that hadn't really been captured before. And of course I really liked some ironic things, fun things, like him in those black-and-white loafers, and he's holding his Gibson, his Johnny Cash Gibson, and he's in the pale blue socks."

Also being released yesterday is LIFE Unheard: Johnny Cash, a new music collection featuring a dozen rare recordings from throughout Cash's career, including two previously unreleased tracks.
