Biography

Beginning his career as an outlaw to the Nashville establishment, Johnny Cash has come to define country music over the last 40 years. At first, his unique mix of hillbilly music with gospel and blues made him a perfect fit at Sam Phillips' Sun records, where he recorded such classics as "Folsom Prison Blues" and "I Walk The Line." From there, Johnny signed with ... Read more in Amazon's Johnny Cash Store

5.0 out of 5 stars The King of Texas July 11, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The older I get, the more I appreciate Johnny Cash. I have quite a few of the "Live from Austin" issues, and have been a Cash fan for over 40 years now (I was a teenager in Folsom when he made his visits to the Prison, including the one captured on "At Folsom Prison" -- guess what song was "#1" on every jukebox in town for the next ten years?). So I can't quite explain why I waited to buy this record for so long. Perhaps it was because I had at least ten Cash albums, and because a "live" record without Johnny and June doing "Jackson" just could never measure up to "AFP".

Well, I was wrong to wait. Be warned -- if you buy this CD, you may never take if off your CD player. The reviewer who wrote this doesn't measure up to the classic live records "AFP" and "San Quentin" was wrong. The only negative comparison I can make to those two is the comparison of the raucus prison audiences, and Cash's inimitable banter, with the sedate Chardonnay, and doubtless well-edited, Austin crowd. But it is OK. It all works. Because the songs, the performances, and the production are perfect. "Live from Austin" is now ascended to the top of my "Records to Take to a Desert Island" list.

What great songs! And they are matched measure for measure by Cash's peerless phrasing and the silky, gruff, bass and baritone of the richest voice in music. Cash balances masterful performances of his own classics with reprises of great songs of other great writers. The cuts of Cash's own "Ring of Fire," "Folsom Prison Blues", "I Walk the Line", and "Big River" found here are as good, or better, than any other version you will listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars No one will ever approach him January 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I teach at a multicultural urban university. Sometimes, just to find out, I'll ask a class, ranging in age from 15 to 55, from countries from our shores to Albania to Nigeria to Mexico to Serbia to places I can neither pronounce nor spell, Xanzibar, if you will, if they know who Johnny Cash is. Yep. They all shout out, for Johnny. The class erupts. He is revered across all lines, the sole universal.

This record is a testament to his skills onstage and as a song interpreter, which we know from the American Recordings. The pacing is crisp but rich, wonderful asides to introduce the songs, the performances spectacular in their modest Cash manner, and the song choices flow toward the redemptive--at least for those of us who will heed the cautionary tales. This is a cleansing, cathartic set that anyone, familiar or not with Cash's history, will tumble headlong into. He's got a harness on melodic and rhythmic shifts that can only come from a lifetime of introspection.

Maybe someone someday will come along with Cash's absolute integrity and talent, but I'd not put money on it. He's one for the ages, like Shakespeare or Li Po or Dante or Cervantes. And since we're not going to be around long enough to produce another in his league, savor this now. Check your thermometer. Viva, Johnny! See you soon.

LIVE FROM AUSTIN, TX was released on January 9, 2007, about 20 years after the recording of the concert. Thirteen songs of which three were written by Johnny Cash himself: "Folsom Prison Blues", "I Walk the Line" and "Ballad of Barbara". Two or three concert anthems like "Ring of Fire" and "(Ghost) Riders in the Sky" and a duet with June Carter : "Where Did We Go Right?".

With guitarist Jim Soldi and trumpet / keyboard player Bob Lewin behind him, Johnny Cash gave a top-notch performance that evening. I'm playing the CD without a break for three weeks now and I'm not tired of it; in my completely subjective scale of values, that means only one thing: this CD is indispendable. Period.

A CD for your library.

5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible live performance! January 10, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The LIVE FROM AUSTIN CITY LIMITS series has been releasing concerts from some great artists; Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Tony Joe White, and others have seen some of their best performances captured and released on CD/DVD. Now there's a new addition to your collection, from the one and only Johnny Cash. And it is certainly one of his best recorded performances.

That's saying a lot, of course. Cash was (is) a legend who recorded many stellar live albums (SAN QUENTIN, FOLSOM PRISON, anyone?). This album doesn't rank up there with those, of course, but it is a stellar album in its own right. His lively renditions of "Big River" and "Folsom Prison Blues" will get you singin' out loud and stomping your feet; his energetic performance of the melancholy classic "Long Black Veil" is a pure delight. He gives a special introduction to "I Walk The Line," for the members of the audience born since '56 "who might not have heard it." His performance is intimate, yet showcases easily why he remains one of the best performers of any musical genre. Buy this album if you are a Cash fan, or if you just love music that breaks boundaries. Thank God Austin City Limits is reissuing these classic performances; special thanks for releasing this one.
