More About The Best of the Johnny Cash TV Show - Johnny Cash
 
 
 
Overview

Straying far from straight country billing, THE JOHNNY CASH SHOW welcomed a wide variety of musical artists during its tenure from 1969 to 1971. Reaching across musical barriers, Cash welcomed artists that ranged from country rebel Waylon Jennings to R&B star Stevie Wonder. No surprise, as Cash himself chafed against the musical constraints imposed by Nashville. Included here are 66 performances that show artists working at the peak of their creativity, including a trio of songs by a velvet-voiced Bob Dylan (during his NASHVILLE SKYLINE phase); a jam session with Cash, Eric Clapton, and Carl Perkins; and plenty of duets featuring the Man in Black with, among others, Louis Armstrong, Roy Orbison, and Cash's wife, June Carter. Throughout the show, viewers feel Cash's personal touch and graciousness as he welcomes these legendary artists to the stage, his home. Other guests include George Jones, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Kris Kristofferson, Conway Twitty, Neil Diamond, Neil Young, and Joni Mitchell.
