A new book is available today from the Editors of Life that will feature rare and never-before-seen photos of Cash from the Sony archives (just how deep is this vault?) and interviews with Cash and his family, including June Carter Cash, and new reminiscences by his children Rosanne Cash and John Carter Cash.
A companion recording that serves as a tie-in with the book, LIFE Unheard: Johnny Cash, will also be released featuring solo acoustic recordings cut at the House of Cash studio and live concerts taped at the Newport Folk Festival and the White House. It also includes a previously unreleased studio version of Ben Dewberry’s Final Run, and Movin’ Up, recorded for Cash’s 1981 made-for-TV movie, The Pride of Jesse Hallam.
I played this recording via Spotify and my iPhone today. Its a pleasant set of songs. I loved what I heard and I think you will too. Give a listen. 🙂
