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

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Johnny Cash has long been both country legend and American icon. But once upon a time, in the late '60s, Cash was something more mercurial--pop culture superstar. This 26-song, previously unreleased concert recorded in December 1969 at a Madison Square Garden packed with 21,000 enthusiastic fans from across the cultural and political spectrum documents what's arguably the peak of Cash's career. One story-song slides naturally into the next in a set that not only documents the high points of his already rich and colorful career, but paints a compelling autobiography of the singer and his hardscrabble roots. Whether taking a bold antiwar stance as a "dove with claws" (imagine a post-Lee Greenwood country star being as brave) on "Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream," taking a tough, unflinching look at prison life in a four-song stretch book-ended by "The Long Black Veil" and "Folsom Prison Blues," or examining the plight of the Native American and his own religious beliefs, Cash gives a performance that underscores the honesty and integrity that made him a conquering American folk hero. The singer's generosity toward his backing musicians and songwriters is also noteworthy, acknowledging Shel Silverstein's presence as the writer of his massive hit "A Boy Named Sue," turning over the show to the Carter Family for a couple slices of Appalachian roots music, and letting the Statler Brothers showcase "Flowers on the Wall" and fellow Sun legend-turned-sideman Carl Perkins rip through an explosive, show-stopping "Blue Suede Shoes." Cash's presence here is more than mere performance; it's a frank reminder that American values remain considerably more complex than nostalgia, apple pie, and flag-waving. --Jerry McCulley

Product Description

Even more amazing than this 1969 concert-with Johnny flanked by Carl Perkins, Maybelle Carter and the Carter Sisters and the Statler Brothers-is this fact: it's never been released 'til now! He sings his then-current #1 country smashes A Boy Named Sue and Daddy Sang Bass plus Big River; Folsom Prison Blues; Five Feet High and Rising; The Ballad of Ira Hayes ; Carl Perkins does Blue Suede Shoes ...over 77 minutes of incredible, UNRELEASED performances!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic unreleased 1969 live show September 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Having released live albums in 1968 ("At Folsom Prison") and 1969 ("At San Quentin"), this previously unreleased 1969 live show from New York's Madison Square Garden still manages to illuminate another side of Cash's performance. Given the pressure of the prison shows, not to mention their tailor-made set lists, this recording finds Cash less on-edge, providing a more accurate rendering of his then-current stage show. Everyone but a very pregnant June Carter Cash is on-board, including the Tennessee Three (Marshall Grant, W.S. Holland and Bob Wooten), Carl Perkins, Tommy Cash, The Statler Brothers and The Carter Family (including Mother Maybelle, and daughters Helen and Anita).

The set list covers many of Cash's most beloved songs (including a quartet of prison tunes, and a barn-burning take of "Wreck of the Old 97"), plus a generous helping of historical and folk classics, including Jane Bowers "Remember the Alamo" (recorded throughout the '50s and '60s by The Kingston Trio, Donovan, Willie Nelson and others). He provides contemporary commentary about the Vietnam War ("when you watch the helicopters bringing in the wounded, that might make you a dove with claws") and sings Ed McCurdy's "Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream" (a standard of the '60s folk revival, sung by The Weavers, Chad Mitchell, and Simon & Garfunkel, among others).

The ease and confidence with which Cash presents himself on stage is astounding, and more in evidence than in the live prison recordings. Spoken introductions to songs like "Five Feet High and Rising" pull everything together into a seamless presentation. Similarly, Cash's generous revue staging allows his compatriots -- each headliners in their own right -- to shine brightly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Johnny Cash couldn't Improve on this one! January 9, 2003
By Birdman
Format:Audio CD
This superb, live 1969 recording has such indomitable spirit and steady musicianship, I wonder why Sony took 33 years to release it. The program is a slice of history and the record of a musical occasion we may never see the likes of again. There are 26 songs here (30 if you count all the tunes in the final medley) and I couldn't find a bad one in the bunch. "Big River" is a stunning opener, and this particular rendition is one of the best I've heard. Cash's anecdotes of prison life, his visits to the Holy Land and memories of the combat zone during the height of the Vietnam War dovetail with powerful versions of "Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream," "The Ballad of Ira Hayes," and "Were You There When They Crucified my Lord." The upbeat songs are stunning too, from Carl Perkin's rendition of "Blue Suede Shoes," to a raucous performance of "A Boy Named Sue." The guest performances are all worthwhile, from The Statler Brother's nostalgic "Flowers on the Wall" to Maybelle Carter's take on "Wildwood Flower." While her vocals lag a half-beat behind the musicians, it adds even more poignance to the song. This is country, gospel and bluegrass of the first order performed by musical legends. The recording is clean and balanced for its era with a decent stereo soundstage to boot. The only negative is that once you hear it, you may hunger for the past, and that may hurt a little. But I'd rather hurt knowing that December 5, 1969 happened, and that someone had the good sense to archive this extraordinary event. One of my all-time top-100.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cash and family playing at their peak September 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Cool! An entire album of prevously unreleased live Johnny Cash goodies from his commercial heyday in 1969, repeating the success of his earlier concert albums, but here performing for the city slickers in the Big Apple. Johnny is joined by the reconstituted Carter Family, brother Tommy Cash, the Statler Brothers (who he was a patron of...) and fellow Sun Records veteran Carl Perkins (as we hear on a track intro at the very end of the album, June Carter Cash wasn't able to attend as she was six months pregnant at the time...) It's an efficient, professional presentation, yet one that gives some nice glimpses into Cash's inner life, mostly through the spoken introductions that accompany many of the songs. The most telling is the intro to "Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream," in which Cash addresses the thorny issue of the Vietnam War. Stumbling nervously, hoping not to offend anyone one way or the other, Cash recalls how he and his show went to entertain the troops overseas, declaring, "I may not be a hawk... But maybe I'm a dove with claws..." He also introduces a few songs with asides about his down-home background; back then, these monologes may have been a bit hokey, but they've added resonance as Cash has gotten older and his legend increased. Also of interest is an angry, emotional reading of his Native American rights protest song, "As Long As Grass Shall Grow," which is one of the most powerful performances of Cash's career. There are also plenty of religious tunes, which he also puts his heart into. There are some rushed moments, but on the whole, this is an album well worth checking out, and certainly a delight for longtime Cash fans who have never heard this material before.

This is an amazing concert. I was reduced to a blubbering pile of tears the first time I heard "Were you there when they crucified my lord" from this disc. And I'm an atheist! An amazing concert, BUY IT NOW!!
