I recently obtained the “Johnny Cash At San Quentin” CD boxed set that comes with a DVD documentary. It’s pretty neat – almost the whole show on 2 CD’s, and a British TV documentary, with ‘actualities’.
Of course, I remember Johnny Cash being on TV in the late 60’s. I was always slightly conflicted about Bob Dylan appearing with Mr. Cash on TV, but…less so these days. I even like Dylan’s “Nashville Skyline” now!
I was taken to see Johnny Cash on my birthday, in the early 90’s – it was at a small-ish nightclub (that no longer exists). June Carter referred to Johnny as “Old Golden Throat”. I also saw John Entwistle perform a show at that club…
I owned a few Johnny Cash records – once upon a time – before I owned any other country & western records. Long gone, now (45’s). I have had friends who held Mr. Cash in inordinately high regard (especially during ‘punk days’).
I have heard the latter day recordings – like where Mr. Cash covered Depeche Mode…
“Everybody Loves A Nut” is Johnny’s comedy / novelty LP – complete with Jack Davis cover art! Did you know he made a comedy / novelty LP?
It was very interesting to read the story about how that photo of Johnny flipping a bird to the British camera crew came about. Nice that it’s on T-shirts etc.
We all miss Johnny Cash.
