Old Golden Throat is a compilation album by country singer Johnny Cash, released in 1968 (see 1968 in music) on Columbia Records. The record is a collection of single sides that, with two exceptions, had not yet appeared on an album (the exceptions being "Still in Town" and "Tennessee Flat Top Box"). The mix spans recordings made almost a decade before its release and songs completed up to several months prior to it. Nine of the fourteen tracks had appeared on Billboard's country singles chart (see below).

Two of the songs on the album - "I Got Stripes" and "Dark as a Dungeon" - had been performed by Cash at Folsom Prison and subsequently appeared on his famous At Folsom Prison live album in May 1968. However, the versions included here were originally recorded and released in 1959 and 1963, respectively.

Because the tracks were taken from singles, the album was released only in monaural.
