Oh, yah: It’s the Man in Black doing Folsom Prison live on the teevee circa 1959!
Also, feast your eyes on ”Hello, I’m Johnny Cash“, the 1976 Evangelical comic from Spire that’s about 100 times better than that damn movie. It covers all the same material, but includes hallucinations, and singing lullabyes to giant prison men!
A tip of the cap to the relentlessly nifty WFMU blog for the find.
If you’re not in a Johnny Cash mood, but still want some great music to start your day, I suggest taking advantage of NPR’s broadcasting of a Wilco show from this previous Friday. Get your not-yet-released tunage on!
