UMe released ‘Johnny Cash The Great Lost Performance’ – adding another musical chapter to the icon’s musical legend.
The album includes the first-ever release of a classic 1990 performance of several songs he rarely performed live. ‘Johnny Cash – The Great Lost Performance’ (Island/UMe) debuted nearly 17 years to the day of the original concert when Cash and his revue took the stage at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, New Jersey on July 27, 1990.
Only recently unearthed and newly mixed from the original multi-tracks, the nearly hour-long CD features Cash at his most compelling–performing in front of a live audience. Among the 18 songs on ‘Johnny Cash – The Great Lost Performance’ are renditions of some of his greatest hits, from such early songs as “I Walk The Line,” “Hey Porter” and “Folsom Prison Blues” to the later “Ring Of Fire,” “Sunday Morning Coming Down” and “(Ghost) Riders In The Sky.”
In addition, a wonderfully upbeat Cash not only duets with wife June Carter Cash on a boisterous “Jackson” and another very early song, “The Wreck Of Old ’97,” but the pair also punctuate the music with wonderful introductions and revealing stories.
