    Johnny Cash backed a pretty good singer named Martin Delray on a remake of “Get Rhythm” in the late ’80s/early ’90s. I recall hearing the single on WYNY then, though it was, at best, a minor hit. I liked the remake at least as much as the original–though the subject matter was a bit of an anachronism, by then.
    They also did a nice video. Cash looks great there No signs of the health problems that beset him in his later years.
