American musical icon Johnny Cash was at a career highpoint and in the middle of a successful tour of Scandinavia in 1971, when he was asked to star in his own concert special for Danish television. For the first time ever, this special, Man In Black: Live in Denmark 1971 is being released in audio form for fans to enjoy.
The album captures the essence of a Johnny Cash show of the era, showcasing performances with his touring companions – the Tennessee Three (his backup band) June Carter Cash, the Carter Family, Carl Perkins, and the Statler Brothers – on a setlist of hits and classics.
Yahoo Music is excited to premiere one of these well-loved classics, “Folsom Prison Blues,” for music lovers of all ages to experience.
Man In Black: Live in Denmark 1971 will officially drop on Dec. 4. For more information about the release, check here.
