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

Format: Audio CD
The year 1969 really was Johnny Cash's annus mirabilis. Following on from the huge success of his Johnny Cash At Folsom Prison album, released the previous year, came the Johnny Cash At San Quentin album; The Johnny Cash Show for ABC-TV, taped at the Ryman, commencing in June (that was to run until early 1971); the CMA Awards in October for A Boy Named Sue (Single of the Year), San Quentin (Album of the Year), as well as Male Vocalist of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year (with wife June Carter), and topped off with the Award of Entertainer of the Year. Oh yes, and a cover-feature in Life magazine, who dubbed Johnny the 'Rough-Cut King of Country Music.'

The only time I saw the Johnny Cash Show in concert was at Nashville's Municipal Auditorium in late 1969. I was but a young man then, and had been away from home for longer than ever before and feeling homesick. Johnny and the others put on a really great show, parts of which I found very moving.

This concert before around 21,000 people in New York City's Madison Square Garden was recorded in December 1969, though not released until over 30 years later in 2002. It was more or less the same show as the one I'd been at a few weeks earlier, except that June Carter didn't appear, as she was expecting John Carter Cash (he arrived on 3 March 1970). Johnny refers to her absence during the show. From what I recall, the full show lasted well over 2 hours, so here it has been edited for album release, though it certainly includes the show's highlights. It is of course more of a family show than Johnny's live prison albums which sold so well, and I can see why subsequently they decided not to release it at that time.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This concert was recorded in December 1969 although not released until 2002. My first point here is this that this is a professional recording not a an enhanced bootleg, so the sound quality is good. I would imagine following on from the live prison concert albums released in 1968 and 1969, it was probably felt that a third live concert release may not have been appropriate at the time.

As my Johnny Cash collection has increased rapidly in recent months, this latest addition is fully deserving of another 5 stars.

The added ingredient that makes the difference in this case is that the recording includes some good commentary delivered by Cash on the background of quite a few of the songs. So, for example "Five Feet High And Rising", recalling a Mississippi flood in Arkansas that occurred during Cash's childhood. "Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream" is a reflection on the Vietnam war which was raging at the time, today it still has relevance. The relevance of this song is probably why Johnny re-recorded it for his sixth and final American album "Ain't No Grave" in the weeks before his death ten years ago in September 2003. The commentary is largely not contained in the aforementioned prison concerts [Folsom (1968) and San Quentin (1969)].

The recording also includes the guest performances and particularly significant is a performance of "Blue Suede Shows" by it's writer Carl Perkins.

New York would have been a potentially tough audience for a southern country star, (even Elvis was apprehensive about New York ahead of his famous 1972 Madison concerts), but the power of Johnny Cash's communication means that there is no hint of the American north/south divide. As Elvis discovered two and half years later, when you are good, New York audiences know it and respond accordingly.
