Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison by Johnny Cash( Recording )

Die Cash-Filmbiografie <<Walk The Line>> wählte seinen Auftritt im kalifornischen Hochsicherheitsgefängnis Januar 1968 als dramatischen Schlusspunkt. -- Im wirklichen Leben markierte der legendäre Moment den Beginn von Cashs erfolgreichstem Karriereabschnitt. Nach 12 Jahren und unzähligen Hits, aber auch ausufernden Drogenproblemen war er bereit für den nächsten Popularitätsschub. -- Seinen Pillenmissbrauch hatte er dank June Carter im Griff. Und sein bereits lange gehegter Wunsch nach einem Gefängnisalbum fand in der politisch und sozial aufgewühlten Zeit Ende der 60er Jahre plötzlich Gehör bei seiner Plattenfirma. -- Mit <<At Folsom Prison>> positionierte sich Cash erfolgreich als verständnisvoller Anwalt aller Benachteiligter und Rechtloser Amerikas und verschaffte sich als erster Country-Star Gehör und Glaubhaftigkeit weit über die Country-Welt hinaus. -- Eine unverwechselbar markante Stimme, ein Mann in Schwarz, der mit einfachen Worten aber oft gegen den Strich über Liebe, Mord und Gott singt und das Ganze mit einem Anflug von Gefährlichkeit in eine saftige Show verpackt: Dies ist der Stoff aus dem Legenden gemacht werden - mit garantierter Wirkung bis ins nächste Jahrtausend.

The unbroken circle the musical heritage of the Carter Family by Carter Family (Musical group)( Recording )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and Dutch and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of American roots music lies with southwestern Virginia's Carter Family's hymns, white blues, transplanted British folk ballads and sentimental 19th-century parlor songs. Playing melody on her bass strings, Maybelle helped to bring the guitar to the forefront of pop instrumentation. Even at the peak of their 1920s-30s success, lead singer Sara's deep tones resonated with restrained sorrow (perhaps for a troubled marriage and a career she wanted far less than husband A.P. and sister-in-law Maybelle). With a voice as weathered as her native Clinch Mountains, Sara, though only in her 30s, sounded like "Worried Man Blues" would eat at her until she reached the "River Of Jordan." These 20 rural tunes come from 1935 and 1940 sessions for ARC and OKeh. None of them were previously recorded for Victor, but Legacy's sound far surpasses Rounder's catalog of their Victor output
