Recently I checked out Waterloo records in Austin wherein I purchase Johnny Cash’s At Folsom Prison vinyl. For starters if you have never listened to this record it is a must! that was videotaped at Folsom jail so you can hear the prisoner’s reactions to Cash’s songs. The is truly an impressive record. On the back of the document was a copy of a letter Cash had actually written around prison and also his experiences in prison.
This letter peaked my attention as ns realized how small I in reality knew around Johnny Cash. Ns love this letter for plenty of reasons but mostly because he shared his experiences in a way that make me see just how much he construed these guys at Folsom Prison. Having been in prison a couple of times, the voiced his opinion ~ above the “rehabilitation” that prisoners and their reemergence’s into a society that to be to welcome them with open up arms. Through this descriptive letter girlfriend can virtually hear the frustration in Cash’s deep bass voice. That is a moving letter and does its project in exposing some of the flaws the the jail system. Moving away native his negative boy photo I desire to emphasis in top top my main interest, Johnny and also June.
June appears twice in Cash’s At Folsom Prison and wow execute they do a good team. Native what I have read they had actually a partnership that was incomparable. It take it a pair of times however when Cash suggest in 1968 in ~ a live performance in London, Ontario June lastly said yes. She was a great supporting pressure in his life as she assisted him overcome his medicine addiction. She to be completely dedicated to him and also he the same. Cash’s letter to she on her date of birth is one because that the records according to Taste of Country, rolling Stones, Huffington Post and also more.
Can you feeling his emotion in this letter? His deep unwavering love for June is heart stopping and also admirable. Also after her death Cash was completely dedicated to her. In his last public appearance he said, “The soul of June Carter overshadows me tonight v the love she had for me and also the love I have for her. We connect somewhere in between here and also heaven. She came under for a brief visit, i guess, from sky to visit v me this evening to offer me courage and also inspiration choose she always has.” You can’t tell me the you don’t want a love like Johnny and also June’s.
Heidi Newfield’s tune “Johnny and June” around sums the up for me. What about you?
