Editorial Reviews

For the 1979 broadcast, Cash's annual CBS Christmas special returns to Nashville after taping the previous year's program in Los Angeles. This time he features his father, Ray Cash, and older brother Roy Cash in a visit to the small home in Dyess, Arkansas, where Johnny and his siblings were raised. Guests include Canadian pop and country star Anne Murray ("You Needed Me"), who was enjoying the most successful period of her career, and country music's Tom T. Hall, whom Cash introduces as "my very favorite songwriter" before Cash and Hall launch into a medley of Hall's hits "Old Dogs, Children And Watermelon Wine," "The Year That Clayton Delaney Died," "I Love" and "Country Is." The show's comic foil is the late Andy Kaufman, who appears as his character Latka Gravas from the hit network show Taxi. The show originally aired December 6, 1979.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Steve Ramm TOP 50 REVIEWER on November 30, 2008
Format: DVD
This is one of four volumes of Cash's Annual Christmas show, as broadcast on CBS, released by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Shout Factory. Recorded in Nashville with Johnny and his family, this time he invites Anne Murray and one of Cash's songwriter idols - Tom T. Hall. Hall gets a couple of solos and then joins Cash for a medley of Hall's compositions. There's just enough Christmas music to make it seasonal. For some reason they decided they wanted some non-Country comedy and invited Andy Kaufman, who, at this point in his career was best known for his role in TV's "Taxi". This is by far - except for Kaufman fans - the weakest point in the show.

While not the best show in the series, it's still Johnny Cash, who rarely gives a bad performance and "Five Feet High And Rising" is really the only song Cash from the "standard" Cash repertoire.

The quality of the video print is excellent.
