Why ‘first and last’ you may ask? Well, put simply, we’ll be playing the first and last albums that Johnny Cash released in his lifetime. 45 years apart, and both containing many of the songs he’s now probably most well-known for. Those albums are ‘Johnny Cash With His Hot And Blue Guitar‘, released on Sun Records in 1957, and ‘American IV: The Man Comes Around‘, the fourth of his Rick Rubin-produced albums for the American Recordings label, released in 2002.
In all honesty, we were spoilt for choice. JC released somewhere in the region of 90 albums in that 45 years, spanning country, gospel, protest songs, film soundtracks, Christmas songs, live recordings and collaborations with other singers and musicians. Plus, since his death in September 2003, there have been several collections of previously unreleased material make their way out.
We’ll have a few other treats and surprises along the way, including outtakes from a recording session with Bob Dylan in 1969, songs by artists that inspired Cash and, if all goes to plan, The Chicken In Black!
It’ll be a night to remember. I hope you can join us.
