Classic Cash: Hall of Fame Series is the 74th album by the American country singer Johnny Cash, released on Mercury Records in 1988 (see 1988 in music). It consists entirely of re-recordings of songs already associated with Cash from his Sun and Columbia days. The album has been criticized because of the use of several controversial production techniques, including synthesizers, in an attempt to update and modernize Cash's earlier songs.[citation needed]
