todayOctober 28, 2015


Johnny CashTwo live albums by Johnny Cash, one from 1971 and the other from 1978, are set for release by Columbia/Legacy over the next four months. In 1971, Cash was asked to star in his own concert special for Danish Television. That performance will be released on December 4 as Johnny Cash’s Man in Black: Live in Denmark 1971. Previously only available on DVD, this edition will be out both on CD and on a 2-LP red and white vinyl edition.
Joining Cash for the special were his band, the Tennessee Three, wife June Carter Cash, the Carter Family, Carl Perkins and the Statler Brothers. Then, on February 5, the April 11, 1978 concert at Sportovní hala in Prague, Czechoslovakia will be released as a single CD.
The show was the first by a music artist of Cash’s stature behind the iron curtain and was arranged by the Czech government to see how audiences would react to American music. Cash played four shows before a total of 40,000 people.
The concert was previously available in the 2012 box set Johnny Cash: The Complete Columbia Album Collection and as a red vinyl limited edition for Record Store Day 2015. This is the first time it has been put out on a standalone CD.
