I read Bob Dylan's Chronicles last week and of the hundreds of passages that stuck out, this one seemed especially relevent ;)

(He's refering to his Oh Mercy album here):

"I wasn't sure that we had recorded any historial tunes like what he (his producer) had wanted, but I was thinking that we might have gotten close with these last two. "Man in the Long Black Coat" was the real facts. In some kind of weird way, I thought of it as my "I Walk the Line", a song I'd always considered to be there at the top, one of the most mysterious and revolutionary of all time, a song that makes an attack on your most vulnerable spots, sharp words from a master.

I'd always thought that Sun Records and Sam Phillips himself had created the most crucial, uplifting and powerful records ever made. Next to Sam's records, all the rest sounded fruity. On Sun Records, the artists were singing for their lives and sounded like they were coming from the most mysterious place on the planet. No justice for them. They were so strong, can send you up a wall. If you were walking away and looked back at them, you could be turned into stone. Johnny Cash's records were no exception, but they weren't what you expected. Johnny didn't have a piercing yell, but ten thousand years of culture fell from him. He could have been a cave dweller. He sounds like he's at the edge of the fire, or in the deep snow, or in a ghostly forest, the coolness of conscious obvious strength, full tilt and vibrant with danger. "I keep a close watch on this heart of mine". Indeed. I must have recited those lines to myself a million times. Johnny's voice was so big, it made the world grow small, unusually low pitched-dark and booming, and he had the right hand to match him, the rippling rhythm and cadence of click-clak. Words that were the rule of law and backed by the power of God. When I first heard "I Walk the Line" so many years earlier, it sounded like a voice calling out, "What are you doing there, boy?". I was trying to keep my eyes wide open too."

Happy Birthday John Ray Cash

Your music changed my life and many others.
Your music and influence will never be forgotten.
Your music touched thousands of lives and I doubt it will ever stop touching lives.
From With His Hot and Blue Guitar all the way down to American IV: The Man Comes Around, everything you've done has been fantastic.
Feburary 26, 1932 is when you were delivered to use and September 12, 2003 was when you left us, those 71 years were probably the most wonderful years this world has seen.
I love you Johnny, we all love you. We miss you and we thank you for the years of music and the years of joy to come from further listening.

I remember the Man in Black.

I've been trying to figure out what a specific song is. It was on one of Cash's greatest hit mixes (I know, that narrows it down so much :P ), and it's about a man who dies (Old Man Rivers?) and his mule just lies down next to him and waits - or something like that. It was on a CD I bought for my dad a few years ago, but my brother thinks he lost it; and since my dad passed away this week, I want to find the song for my brother.

Anyone have a clue? Thanks in advance for the help.

cash on the cover of RM [08 Sep 2004|10:37pm]


Just wanted to let you guys know that this month's issue of Rockabilly Monthly features an anniversary story on Johnny, Cash: One Year Later. 

Here's an excerpt from the story:

"When Johnny Cash passed away of diabetes-related respiratory complications on Friday, September 12, 2003, the last trace of old fashioned rock and roll rebellion may have died, too. Not simply a guitarist, singer, country musician, rock and roll musician—or any combination thereof—Cash was a symbol of simple American rebellion..."

Rockabilly Monthly Magazine is available at all Tower Record stores, in addition to many independant music stores across the United States and overseas.  If you can't find one near you, you can order straight from the website, www.rockabillymonthly.com.

[ mood | nostalgic ]

Hi, I'm new to the community. I was raised on Johnny Cash since my parents started listening to him long before I was born. I absolutely love his music! I have very fond memories of road trips with my mom and sisters singing along to his tapes. As little girls, we found The One On The Right Is On The Left especially amusing, as well as It Ain't Me, Babe. I wish I could have seen him play sometime. At least his music will endure!

I've got to ask you, if you have the Unearthed box set, have you actually listened through the fifth disc? I know I was surprised when it got to "Thirteen".

The tracklisting is well thought out in my opinion anyway. I know that they could have put more unreleased songs on it instead of making a Best Of, but well, we can't change that it is there, and at least it is well made.
