Broadactors on Danish television in 1971, this hour-lengthy program is a decent document of Johnny Cash in the prime of his media visibility, though it"s not the best such thing easily accessible. In reality, it"s a small choose watching an episode of his netjob-related selection TV display without as a lot array. Done on a straightforward set prior to a tiny audience, the emphasis is wholly on the music, though Cash sometimes cedes the spotlight to a couple of guests. Seven of the 19 songs on the disc, but, are Cash solo performances, consisting of popular numbers like "I Walk the Line," "Man in Babsence," "A Boy Named Sue," and "Guess Things Happen That Way," as well as the Kris Kristofferchild covers "Me and also Bobby McGee" and also "Sunday Mornin" Comin" Down." Cash also duets through wife June Carter Cash on three tunes, taking in one more Kristofferboy cover ("Assistance Me Make It Through the Night") and also interpretations of songs by John Sebastian ("Darling Companion") and Tim Hardin ("If I Were a Carpenter"). Also taking turns as featured performers are Carl Perkins (via "Blue Suede Shoes" and "Matchbox"), the Statler Brothers (who do their biggest hit, "Flowers on the Wall"), and the Carter Family (though the crucial they sell sounds prefer a song that"s waiting for a lead vocalist to come in). All the performers join together for some spiritual tunes, and Cash offers the melodramatic narration for the Carter Family"s maudlin "A Track to Mama," finish via an insert of Maybelle Carter acquiring misty-eyed in a corner of the screen. The display all at once is a little workmanfavor (and also Cash"s guitar regularly dangles unplayed), yet it"s a fair means to gain a focused dose of the music Johnny and his intimates were perdeveloping in the early on "70s.
