The man in Black - a great musical icon!

IMO, American IV is a masterpiece. Those two songs along with "Till we meet again", make me tear up knowing that he was writing his own elegy while suffering the recent loss of his his wife, June Carter Cash.

Johnny Cash was a great, musical icon. He always grew in his craft. I recall reading some of what became several hundred posts, largely from folks in there 20's and 30's, about this video and how powerful it was.

I'm still waiting for a remastering and official release of the 1969 Dylan-Cash Sessions. Thank heaven for bootlegs. Been listening to mine today.

"Cash: The Legend" has a really nice version of "Girl of the North Country."

I think "Girl from The North Country" was the only Dylan/Cash duet to see official release. It was also on an old Dylan release. Various bootlegs floating around include another duet of the song from the Johnny Cash show and 16 Columbia Studio Dylan/Cash outtakes from Feb '69. The songs come across as 2 friends just having a good time and makes for a nice mellow, relaxing CD. Columbia probably figures it won't sell a gazillion copies and therefore not worth putting out.

I got to see him and Merle Haggard perform together just outside of Dallas in 1970. Both still remain favorites of mine.
