This catalog is divided into four major sections: singles, extended-play albums, long-play albums, and compact discs. An appendix lists the liner notes Cash has written for his own releases, as well as those of a number of prominent performers over the years. It also lists music videos Cash has appeared in. An accompanying index is a composite of the four sections and the appendix, listing albums and compact disc titles as well as the song titles included in those releases.

Johnny Cash's popularity seems to have reached new heights during 1994, making this Catalog, along with the two earlier discographies, invaluable to fans, who will appreciate the comprehensive coverage. That coverage includes over 1,000 song titles on 228 different record labels, 431 singles, 108 extended-play albums, 1,408 long-play albums, and 254 compact discs from the United States, Canada, and 26 foreign countries.
