See Rare Johnny Cash Photos From The New Book ‘LIFE Unseen’

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 today, 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 below).

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 today is LIFE Unheard: Johnny Cash, a new music collection featuring a dozen rare recordings from throughout Cash’s career, including two previously unreleased tracks: a studio recording of the Jimmie Rodgers tune “Ben Dewberry’s Final Run,” and the song “Movin’ Up,” which was featured in The Pride of Jesse Hallam, a 1981 made-for-TV movie that starred Cash as a man struggling with life because he never learned to read.
