Third Man Records discovers lost 1973 Johnny Cash live album
Jack White’s Third Man Records has discovered a ‘lost’ Johnny Cash live album from 1973.
The album took place after American record producer Clive Davis decided he wanted to a shine a light on the Murderer’s Row lineup of artists that were signed to Columbia Records and arranged a week packed full of concerts to celebrate these musicians.
Davis branded it as ‘A Week To Remember’, it started on April 29 and included performances from the likes of Miles Davis, the Staple Singers, Bruce Springsteen, Earth, Wind and Fire, as well as the imperial Johnny Cash at the Ahmanson Theater in Los Angeles.
Finally, Cash’s performance from that week will be released for the first time ever. A Night To Remember – a 2 LP set features a gold foil LP jacket, a “double vintage white LP,” a gold 7″ featuring two “unreleased Forever Words pieces by Ruston Kelly and a mystery artist,” as well as a DVD of the performance.
The collection will be released as Third Man Records’ Vault Package No. 45.
The new release also features guest appearances from June Carter Cash and Carl Perkins, a cover of Kris Kristofferson’s ‘Sunday Morning Coming Down and Cash classics such as ‘I Walk The Line’ and ‘Hey Potter’.
