I was surprised to find at my local Barnes & Noble the live Johnny Cash DVD, "Man In Black: Live In Denmark 1971". A little gasp of excitement took my breath away & a zing of electricity ran up and down my spine, when I first saw the title. The number 1971 were what really popped out and held my attention. Johnny Cash and his music are like a fine wine. While it rarely disappoints, there are certain years, that you are constantly on the lookout for. And 1971 was a very good year for Mr. Cash and his music. This was a period where career-wise, Johnny Cash was pretty much "on top of the world". He had a number of creative singles at the top of the C&W charts, numerous music awards and was currently hosting a successful music-variety, television show. He truely was at the top of his game. With anticipation I put this DVD on and happily found myself not disapointed at all! "Man in Black: Live in Denmark 1971" is the taping of a music performance for Danish television in front of a small, live audience. At 60 minutes it's short and concise, but the performances are wonderful! Cash, his band and all his guest performers are in top form. It's like seeing a well oiled engine running on all cylinders. The format reminds me a lot of the recently released CD of a 1969 live performance "Johnny Cash at Madison Square Garden", but on a smaller, more intimate scale. First we get Johnny and the Tennessee Three. Then one by one we are treated to the considerable talents of Carl Perkins ("Blue Suede Shoes"), the Statler Brothers ("Flowers on the Wall"), June Carter Cash ("If I Were a Carpenter","Darling Companion") and finally the 'first family of country music', the Carter Family("No Need to Worry"). How can you go wrong with this much talent on one stage? The show's set list is quite good. It's an interesting mix of both signature songs ("A Boy Called Sue", "Folsum Prison Blues") and material that might not be as well known ("A Song To Mama"). While there are plenty of commercial hits, it seems like this particular show goes towards the more spiritual side of Cash's music.This is most evident in the show's big finale, when all the performers take a turn on a rousing version of the gospel number, "Children, Go Where I Send Thee". During this song the whole group goes into a jam that gets your toes a tappin' and takes you to just another place! It's like lightning in a bottle. It's that good! Out of all Johnny Cash's live DVD releases so far, this is one of the best! The remastering of both the DVD's picture & sound are both excellent. Makes it hard to believe this program is over thirty years old. If you are a fan of Johnny Cash or just a fan of good music in general, I would highly recommend "Man In Black: Live In Denmark 1971!

When this DVD, "Man In Black: Live In Denmark" was recorded in 1971, Johnny Cash was at his popular peak. Having his famous prison recordings top the charts just a few years earlier, Johnny was riding high with a weekly hit TV series and a number one record with "A Boy Named Sue". This concert taped in front of a small Danish TV audience is nothing short of phenominal. It far outshines his other concert DVD's "Live From Austin", and "Live from Montreux". The sound quality is great, and the musicianship displayed by his band is top flight. Johnny is in fine voice on such classics as "Folsom Prison Blues", "A Boy Named Sue", "I walk The Line", "Me And Bobby Mcgee" and "Sunday Mornin' Comin Down". This 19 song set also features Guitarist Carl Perkins blazing through his classic "Blue Suede Shoes". The Statler brothers are on hand to sing back-up and are wonderful singing perfect harmony on one of their signature songs "Flowers On The Wall". June Carter is on hand with the Carter family, as she sings three duets with her husband Johnny, most notably "If I Were A Carpenter", and "Help Me Make It Through The Night". The concert ends with some rousing gospel numbers "Rock Of Ages" and a showstopper of a tune "Children, Go Where I Send Thee" which features Johnny, Carl Perkins, June Carter and The Statler Brothers, all singing some good time country gospel that immediately catches the viewers attention. It is ironic that on the day this Dvd was released, 35 years later, the late Johnny Cash has the number one cd in America with his American recordings 'A Hundred Highways", vol-5. In my eyes, Johnny Cash has long surpassed Hank Williams, as country musics all-time icon.

This is a great time capsule of the Johnny Cash show, circa 1971, when he had just adopted the "Man In Black" persona, wherein he declared his solidarity with the trampled and downtrodden. Politics don't figure that prominently in this performance, which was taped live on a Danish TV show, but Cash's tried-and-true country roadshow/revue offers plenty of fascinating historical highlights. Rockabilly legend Carl Perkins was working as Cash's guitarist, and Johnny gives him an early cameo... The Statler Brothers step forward as well, with muttonchops and hippie-ish hair, to sing "Flowers On The Wall" (what else?) and throw on some nice harmonies. June Carter Cash dominates the middle of the show, singing solos and choppy duets with Johnny, and then she introduces the late-era Carter Family, with Mother Maybelle, and sisters Anita and Helen, and they get the biggest response of the night, especially when June cranks up the volume with a shamelessly corny, sentimental homage to Mother Maybelle. The ever-earnest Danes, who sat at polite but rapt attention the whole time, go nuts for the goofily staged tribute, and it proves a rousing close to the show. Of course, there's Johnny Cash, too, and while he's super-laidback he also connects with the audience and with his songs, championing modern songwriters such as Kris Kristofferson (with three songs, including the then-scandalous "Sunday Morning Coming Down") and really hitting it home with his newly-minted personal anthem, "The Man In Black," which still packs a wallop today. The production values and pacing are quite modest, but that's mostly because that's how TV looked and felt back then (I remember) and if you want an accurate look at what Cash's act was like back then, this is a great video to check out.

Worth every dollar and penny! The best of all concerts recorded of the unforgetable singer Johnny Cash (and I purchased and watched recently many of them). Johnny Cash is at the top of his vocal abilities, relaxed and clearly happy. His attention for his small audience is so moving! Incredible performance, and June Carter is great too! I watch this DVD frequently, especially at the end of a hard day, and it really helps me put my troubles in perspective and relax. I never saw Johnny Cash live in concert. When he was still alive, I was not familiar with his music (I did not grow up in this country), only some tunes and lyrics were familiar, but I did not even know they were his! And then I bought his 16 Greatest Hits CD and this live concert in Denmark DVD and it truly blew off my mind and made my life happier. Thank you Johnny Cash!
