    The Official Johnny Cash Thread...

    Johnny Cash R.I.P.

    Anyone see the preview of the new movie with Joquin Pheonix playing Johnny Cash? My favourite Johnny tune lately is "Streets Of Laredo," from American Recordings IV.
    ASHES TO ASHES...DUST TO DUST...IF THE WOMEN DON'T GET YA, THE WHISKEY MUST!!...

    "I used to play the blues alone in all the local joints," he explained. 'The only thing that I can really play on guitar to this day is the blues. I heard Doc Watson and his son playing 15 years ago, and from there I got into Leadbelly and John Lee Hooker."--DLR

    If you pay attention -- what I sing, the guitar sings, too, and what the guitar says, I say.--Mississippi Fred McDowell

    I just recently picked up "The Man Comes Around"...DEVASTATING. Can't say I'm a huge fan of everything he's done, but I do dig him.

    I grew up on this legend's music since my mom and dad both used to listen to him.

    Gotta love The Man in Black.

    The casting for the Johnny Cash pic was way off. Neither one of these actors look anything like Johnny and June. Or maybe it's just me.

    sixstring, that's interesting that you mention that because just about all die-hard johnny cash fan LOVES that album (i think it won big awards) but i was actually disappointed... the 3 albums before that from 1994, 1996, and 2000 (i think those dates are right) were awesome, but i wasnt impressed with that last one...

    however his last studio album is due in november (to coincide with the release of his biopic movie) that was recorded between june carter's death and his own death... so it's bound to be some heavy stuff!

    ColdPlay had written a song "Wait for Me" that Johnny was set to record just before his passing. ColdPlay played it last week in Portland live, and made a medley out of their song and Burning Ring of Fire. It kicked major ass having the drummer come from behind the kit to play piano, the bassist put down the bass to play harmonica, and the band just wailed.

    Great show.
    You know the best tone I ever had was with that little bandmaster cranked to 10. Edward Van Halen, 1980, Guitar Player Magazine.

    Default Johnny Cash's guitar, Hurricane Katrina, and a good deed...

    A welcomed gift
    Woman who picked up Johnny Cash's guitar from debris plans to return it

    By TOM WILEMON
    tewilemon@sunherald.com


    BILOXI - Tabatha Murray, a waitress at the Waffle House in downtown Biloxi, walked a line to the restaurant after Hurricane Katrina passed to see if it survived.

    The restaurant was gone, but she found what is thought to be a rock 'n' roll treasure in the debris - a vintage guitar that appears to have Johnny Cash's autograph on it. Seven weeks later, she is shipping the guitar to Hard Rock Cafe's international headquarters in Orlando.

    Don Bernstine, manager of acquisitions for Hard Rock, said the company appreciated her gesture and asked that anyone else who may have memorabilia from the Hard Rock Biloxi Casino follow her example. He would not say how much of the rock 'n' roll memorabilia from the casino is missing.

    Katrina destroyed the casino's gambling barge and heavily damaged its hotel. The casino resort belongs to Biloxi-based Premier Entertainment, but its memorabilia collection actually belongs to Orlando-based Hard Rock Cafe. The memorabilia the casino had leased included a guitar and clothing from the "Man in Black."

    "When people have a lot of tragedy in life, we really appreciate when they call and tell us they've found something," Bernstine said. "We're hoping to get this back, and we really appreciate it."

    Murray, who lives in Gautier, found the guitar when she and friends who had ridden out the hurricane at her home returned to Biloxi to check on their places. She decided to see her place of work while she was there. The graveyard-shift waitress saw a Fender strap in a pile of debris.

    "I picked it up to look at it and it was signed by Johnny Cash," she said. "I said, 'Oh, my God.' There were people digging through it looking for stuff from the Hard Rock."

    Murray said she went to South Carolina and took the guitar with her until she could return to the Coast. She contacted Hard Rock officials and then called the newspaper.

    "I have had so many people, just by word of mouth, people I trusted, wanting to rip me off to get this guitar," she said. "I'm just happy to get it back to Hard Rock."

    Hard Rock will pay the shipping costs for the guitar. Murray, whose car is inoperable, said she would send it by UPS as soon as she can get a ride.

    A single mother, she had transferred to the Biloxi Waffle House two weeks before the hurricane hit after working at another Waffle House in Moss Point.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Anyone find anything?

    Anyone who has any other memorabilia that might have come from the casino should call the Hard Rock corporate offices at (407) 445-7625.

    Default Johnny Cash vault opens up.. Songs with guests

    Johnny Cash

    articles


    Johnny Cash's Vault Opens

    Revelatory, stripped-down tapes from the early 1970s discovered in archive


    In July 1973, Johnny Cash spent several days in the studio at his House of Cash offices in Hendersonville, Tennessee, recording songs and telling tales with just an acoustic guitar and his virile craggy baritone. He sang Tin Pan Alley hits, traditional folk and gospel tunes, new originals and favorite covers by the Louvin Brothers and Johnny Horton, among others. He recited poetry and reminisced about his teenage job as a water boy on a river-dredging crew and the hours he spent glued to the radio, loving and learning the very songs he sang in these sessions. But Cash, who died in September 2003, never issued any of these intimate performances. The tapes were shelved at House of Cash, where they sat forgotten and undisturbed until 2004, when his son John Carter Cash asked Steve Berkowitz, senior vice president of A&R at Legacy Recordings, Sony BMG's reissue imprint, and producer Gregg Geller for help in cataloging the hundreds of reels stored at the Hendersonville office. "Periodically, I would come across a white tape box with the House of Cash label on it that said 'Johnny Cash, Personal File,'" says Geller. "My sense is he had a concept album in mind, and these tapes were the beginning of that process."

    Cash's dream finally comes true with the May release of the two-CD set Personal File, compiled by Geller and featuring forty-nine previously unissued solo Cash tracks, half from July '73 and the rest from similar, later House of Cash demos made in the late Seventies and early Eighties. Personal File arrives at a peak of posthumous Cashmania, fueled by the success of the biopic Walk the Line. The single-CD compilation, The Legend of Johnny Cash, is selling more than 40,000 copies a week, according to SoundScan.

    But Personal File delivers a Cash even his most devoted fans have never heard before: at the height of his career and vocal power, telling the story of his life in music, as if he were sitting across from you. "This is his 'Basement Tapes,'" says Berkowitz, "as close as you can get to him singing on the porch." There was no documentation with the original reels to suggest Cash ever submitted them to Columbia, his label at the time. But John Carter Cash recalls his dad referring to these sessions at the time of his first album with producer Rick Rubin, 1994's stripped-back American Recordings. "He talked about how he'd made a record like it in the Seventies," John says, "but nobody was interested in putting it out."

    The Personal File tapes were not the only riches buried at the House of Cash, now closed. The tape archive, Geller says, "was a large walk-in closet with, I like to think, virtually every recording that ever passed through his hands," including test pressings of Cash's Sun records and publishing demos by Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson. On one visit, Berkowitz noticed towers of unlabeled boxes wrapped in brown paper. Inside were multitrack audio masters from Cash's ABC TV series, The Johnny Cash Show, including unaired songs by guests such as Bill Monroe, Stevie Wonder and Derek and the Dominos. "It is extraordinary," says Berkowitz, who is planning future releases of the material (Sony owns the footage from the show). "You hear Louis Armstrong teaching Johnny to sing [Jimmie Rodgers'] 'Blue Yodel' and Ray Charles trying to teach the Carter Family to sing like the Raelettes."

    The two-CD Personal File is just the beginning of what may be a long parade of releases from the Cash archives. In June, Sony is releasing Live in Denmark, a DVD of the Johnny Cash stage revue in the Seventies. And Geller says "the intent is to develop some other projects from, as we call them, 'the Hendersonville tapes.' There are other demos with his band, and there's live material."

    "I knew there was treasure there," John Carter Cash says of the House of Cash trove. "But specifics -- that was the mystery of it. My father was creative until the very end of his life. He was genius wherever he went, whatever he did. Luckily, there was a place where this stuff was set aside."
