Johnny Cash – 2003-07-05 – Hiltons, VA (SBD)

On May 15, 2003, Johnny cash lost his wife of 35 years, when June Carter Cash passed away at the age of 73. June had told Johnny Cash to keep working, so he continued to record, completing 60 more songs in the last four months of his life, and even performed a couple of surprise shows at the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, Virginia. This soundboard recording captures his final public performance.

Before singing Ring Of Fire, Cash read a statement about his late wife that he had written shortly before taking the stage:

“The spirit of June Carter overshadows me tonight with the love she had for me and the love I have for her. We connect somewhere between here and heaven. She came down for a short visit, I guess, from heaven to visit with me tonight to give me courage and inspiration like she always has.”

Just over 2 months later, Cash died of complications from diabetes on September 12, 2003 while hospitalized at Baptist Hospital in Nashville. Many have suggested that Johnny’s health worsened due to a broken heart over June’s death. That day we lost a legend, but his spirit lives in the music he left behind.

Johnny Cash – A Tribute

 

Johnny Cash tribute, Cingular Stage, 3 p.m.

When the word came down that Rosanne Cash had canceled her ACL gig after her father died, word quickly spread that the slot would be filled by a tribute to the great man. Yesterday afternoon, word proved true.

Hosted by Ray Benson of Asleep at the Wheel, Austin country’s toastmaster general, the set opened with the award-winning video to Johnny Cash’s remarkable cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt,” projected onto the Cingular stage screen. The images of days gone by, juxtaposed with footage of Cash as he looked last year, were all the more powerful for their massive size.

Things didn’t let up when the live music started. Benson and up-and-coming belter Tift Merritt glided through a strong version of “I Still Miss Someone” that set the tribute’s casual vibe. Then Merritt announced she would pay tribute to Cash by “honoring his daughter” with a lovely cover of Rosanne’s “Seven Year Ache.”

The ringleaders of the recent Southern rock revival showed up to pay tribute as well. At the start of his band’s set, Drive-By Truckers’ frontman Patterson Hood talked about envisioning June Carter Cash and Johnny sitting down to have dinner in heaven. Then guitarist Jason Isbell provided his own version of celestial music: a moving version of “I Walk The Line” that was marked by his plaintive vocals. Guitarist Mike Cooley followed with a deft reading of “Give My Love to Rose” and then Memphis’ North Mississippi Allstars played acoustic versions of “Home of the Blues” and “Big River.”

Dallas’ Old 97’s all but stole the show with “Let the Train Blow the Whistle” a song they covered on an early 7″, and “Ring of Fire,” which brought everyone back on stage for the tribute’s most heartfelt moment.

“ACL” producer Terry Lickona introduced the final part of the tribute — Johnny Cash’s 1987 appearance on “Austin City Limits” shown on the stage’s monitor — by decrying “the plastic pop that passes for country” these days. About five minutes after the screening started, it began to pour. Which was somehow totally appropriate. — Joe Gross

Johnny Cash – 1976 – Strawberry Cake

Strawberry Cake is a live album by country singer Johnny Cash, released on Columbia Records in 1976. In it, Cash tells stories about the recording of each song, and also the history of the United States, in a precursor of sorts to the VH1 Storytellers series, for which he would go on to record a live album entitled VH1 Storytellers: Johnny Cash & Willie Nelson. The album includes several of Cash’s most well-known early songs, such as “Big River”, “I Still Miss Someone” and “Rock Island Line”, as well as a number of more obscure compositions, some of which were performed by Cash for the first time; this includes “The Church in the Wildwood”, “Lonesome Valley”, “Strawberry Cake” and “Navajo”. The title track was released as a single, but did poorly on the charts, peaking at No. 54.

The concert was held at the London Palladium. An IRA bomb threat warning given as June Carter Cash started to sing “The Church in the Wildwood” meant the theatre had to be evacuated but the show continued after the building was searched.
