Johnny Cash is probably my favorite American musician of all time. Without further ado, here's a long Johnny Cash set.
"Big River," from a 1958 TV show.
"Man in Black," from a 1971 TV show. Includes 30-second Merle Haggard comment.
"A Boy Named Sue," live at San Quentin in 1969.
"Folsom Prison Blues," live on TV in 1959. Mediocre sound, but dig the '50s local-TV aesthetics.
"Sunday Morning Coming Down," from a 1970 TV show. Very Nashvilley.
"Ring of Fire," from German TV circa 1982. Cash is paunchy and there's a synthesizer in the backup band, but it still rocks.
"Bonanza / Five Feet High and Rising," two different clips from late-'50s local TV spliced together.
"I Walk the Line," live on local TV in 1959.
"Jackson," duet with June Carter. Note Carter Administration aesthetics (Jimmy, not Maybelle).
"I Got Stripes," live on local TV in 1959. Note the fashions of the times in the crowd shots. Begins with two-minute intro of the band. This is one of the lesser-known early Cash songs.
"Ghost Riders in the Sky," in concert in the late '70s or so.
"Get Rhythm," live on late-'50s local TV.
There's so much Johnny Cash stuff on YouTube that I can't fit it all into one set. I'll post another set of Cash duets tomorrow or when I can.
