This live set by Johnny Cash, recorded in 1987 for the celebrated TV show LIVE FROM AUSTIN, TEXAS, lives up to the Man in Black's colossal reputation (which got a sizable boost after his death and the appearance of the biopic WALK THE LINE). But this set, unlike the scads of posthumous Cash compilations, delivers a raw, human, and distinctly un-commercial portrait of the artist.
Backed by his trusty road band and his wife June Carter, Cash charges through a host of signature tunes, including "Walk the Line," "Ring of Fire," and "Folsom Prison Blues," along with some carefully selected covers, including John Prine's "Sam Stone." Cash is in fine form here, and one listen will serve to remind listeners that--long before the media machine went full tilt promoting his myth--Cash never ceased doing what he did best.
