    Nice clip from Johnny’s television show of the early 1970s. The accompaniment on this song was the Carter Family, The Tennessee Three and The Statler Brothers – that’s a lot of talent serving as backup to Johnny’s vocals.

    I sure wish that someone would (1) release the entire series on DVD and (2) release the vinyl album taken from the show on a stand-alone CD , hopefully with some bonus tracks

      The Cash TV show album has been re-released in three different CD sets. Sony UK has it on a three CD import set along with “Hello I’m Johnny Cash” & “Man In Black”. It was also reissued a couple of years ago as part of a 4-CD Reader’s Digest Cash set “The Great Seventies Recordings.” Most recently it was reissued as part of that huge Sony set that includes ALL of Cash’s Columbia albums. Nice set but pretty pricey (around $245)
