Johnny Cash worked with Rick Rubin and American Records for the last decade of his life--work began in 1993 and ended with Cash’s passing in September of 2003.  During the final decade of Cash’s career he released work that wasn’t only good--it was some of the most powerful stuff ever recorded by the Man in Black.   Too often Cash’s work before Rick Rubin is minimized in comparison.  Hopefully the 2014 release of Out Among the Stars dispels that notion.  It wasn’t just the quality of the work that made his final records so special.  It was the quality of the Man in Black himself.   He was a grandfather for all of the young fans who flocked to buy his records.  He was the rebel, the outlaw, and yet he was respected because of his sagacity, his spirituality, his maturity.  Somehow, Cash balanced both images--he was still the rockabilly from...

The Johnny Cash Infocenter is proud to bring the demo recording of Johnny Cash singing Bob Dylan’s “Man Gave Name to all the Animals” to the light. The song originally appeared on the gospel-flavored 1978 Dylan album, Slow Train Coming. Johnny Cash recorded it for his 1981 CBS Christmas television special. While the version of the song featured in the Christmas special has surfaced on the internet, the demo recording presented has yet to be official unearthed. The program it was intended for, titled “Christmas in Scotland,” filmed Johnny Cash with his son John Carter-Cash walking around a zoo, and as the song played, elder Cash pointed out different animals.   The demo session took place on September 30, 1981 at Columbia’s Studio A in Nashville. Bill Walker produced. These are the actual Columbia safety reels - dubbed straight from the 2-inch master tapes. As you can see in the...

I met Johnny in the 80’s. I was playing in June’s daughter Rosie Carter’s band.
