All Aboard the Blue Train is the fourteenth album by singer Johnny Cash. It was originally released on 15 November 1962 by his first label, Sun, and later re-issued in 2003 under the label Varèse Sarabande, with six bonus tracks. In 1962 Johnny Cash had already signed with Columbia Records, but Sun was still cashing in on him by releasing this album with 12 previously released tracks as a follow-up to Cash's 1960 Columbia album Ride This Train (only the opening track, "Blue Train", had not up to this point been released on LP). The iTunes release contains the original album, but a different song order.
