“From Memphis to Hollywood: Bootleg Vol. 2,” a two-disc collection of Johnny Cash material from the 1950s and 1960s, is due Feb. 22 (digitally and in stores) via Columbia/Legacy.

The first disc features a 15-minute Cash radio broadcast from May 1955, 11 previously unreleased demos that were recorded before he signed with Sun Records, as well as seven outtakes produced between late 1954 and late 1957 by Sun’s Sam Phillips and Jack Clement.

The second disc covers Cash’s first 11 years with Columbia and includes outtakes and nonalbum singles.
