Album artwork for Live At Town Hall Party 1959! by Johnny Cash

The birth of country cool! The Johnny Cash you hear on these two remarkable live performances is not the venerable legend of today.

This was the young, feral Cash, full of piss, vinegar and sly orneriness. Even to those who know every note, joke and guitar lick on Johnny Cash At Folsom Prison or San Quentin, hearing Cash in his prime, aided and abetted by the Tennessee Two, guitarist Luther Perkins and bassist Marshall Grant, is a revelation. These historic documents, sourced directly from the 1958 and 1959 kinescope reels, capture Cash in his most revolutionary days, laying the bedrock of all that was to come and—despite age and infirmities—continues today.
