I've loved Johnny Cash forever. There were some years, back in the days of the old Columbia Record Club, when the only records I ordered were Johnny Cash. They're all still upstairs in my junk room, and I have CD's of some of them now.
"Walk The Line" is one of my favorite movies. I visit Johnnycash.com often. Which is where I found out there's a DVD called "The Best Of The Johnny Cash Show".
I ordered it, and received it today. It's the best $40 I've spent in a long time.
Watching it, I'm twenty-five years old again and it's Saturday night; Country music singers don't have to be pretty (or handsome); I have a baby daughter and a toddler son. I own a Gibson Dove guitar that I later sold for a pittance, not knowing how much it was worth. (But I have another one now, and it won't go anywhere until after I die.)
On this DVD, I've seen: Bob Dylan; Kris Kristofferson (back when I had a crush on him and had his picture on my dresser... poor Cliff); Louis Armstrong; Creedence Clearwater Revival; Waylon Jennings (before he was "an outlaw"); James Tayler; Pete Seeger; Neil Young; Mother Maybelle Carter; Joni Mitchell; Eric Clapton, back when he was Derek and the Dominoes; Bill Monroe; Jerry Lee Lewis; Tony Joe White; Stevie Wonder; Conway Twitty... and so many others!
Cliff's going to love this one. I think Kevin, my son-in-law, will enjoy a few of these songs too.
I'm still smiling.
If you remember the old "Johnny Cash Show" on television, you'll love this. Wow.
