Johnny Cash was a surprise performer at his own all-star tribute Tuesday night in New York, taking to the stage for the first time since being diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder in 1997 ( not counting a brief appearance with Kris Kristofferson at the Grand Ole Opry last year ). My first time in 19 months Cash told the A-list audience at the Manhattan’s Hammerstein Ballroom. "it feels good, it feels good, it feels good. " Producers of the show, taped by TNT for telecast April 18, 1999 managed to sneak the quest of honor onstage near the end of the tribute. The Lights dimmed and the actor Tim Robbins read essay about life in prison. The lights rose to reveal Cash onstage. He uttered his trademark introduction Hello I’M Johnny Cash - then broke into ( Folsom Prison Blues ) and then followed up with ( I Walk The Line) Back by some friends of his. The 67-year-old singer suffers from Shy-Drager Syndrome. ( It was initially thought he had Parkinson’s disease ) While his hair was said to be grayer and thinner since his last public appearance, reports say his voice was strong and clear.

Album Liner Notes

When I was eight years old I lived in a sleepy little college town called Wrynesburg in Pennsylvania, during the summer months the neighborhood boys and I ran up and the alleyways between our homes playing "Mod squad " And "Speed Racer " One day my best friend said " hey, my dad has a record player in the garage. Lets go play some of his records, " I smiled, Yea !!! But he said he can’t find out - he’d whip my butt if he heard we’d been missin with his record collection. I agree and off we ran to his garage, a white washed car shed back behind our house. We snuck in. Inside rays of light penetrated cracks in the garage door and boarded up windows. It was cool and rusty smelling.

There it is John  pointed, the record player that sat on his dads work bench all dusty and half buried by old magazines. We pulled it out and blew off the dirt. It was an old one with built in speakers and a taped together tone arm. The records are in here John said, pointing at the broken wooden Cabinet. Does he have any Rock & roll Stuff I asked ? lets see !! he said pulling on the cabinet door. It creaked and moaned open. Inside there was tons of 45’s even duster then the record player had been. We pulled out several boxes and began digging through them. Man this is some old music!!Who is Pasty Cline? I inquired-oh yeah-hears a good on. My dad said I can’t listen to this one John pulled out Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison Blues.

Why can’t you listen to that record? I asked. My dad says it’s not for kids It’s got mature something or other. Is it Rock & Roll? I’m not sure, he said as he put it on the record player and dropped the needle down. The speaker crackled with static and the music started. The opening guitar line hinted at Rock & Roll but then Johnny Cash’s deep voice pulled the song in a different direction. It wasn’t as heavy as my own dad’s 8-track tapes of Iron Butterfly but I liked it. This is good I yelled as we be-bopped around the garage. John garbed my arm " this part I like" he sang out of key with the song. But (I Shot A Man In Reno, Just To Watch him Die ) I didn’t know where Reno was but I sure in the heck didn’t want to go there.

We listen to Folsom several times and were right in the middle of a Pasty Cline 45 when john’s mom called out of house. John - John where are you? It’s lunch time!! We quickly put everything back the way it was and headed for the door. At the doorway John block it with his arm. Remember he said don’t tell anybody. I nodded. We both scampered out of the garage. John ran into the house and I ran home knowing my own lunch would be ready for me. That was my first rebellious music experience and Folsom Prison Blues has been one of my all time favorite songs since then.

The diversity of artist on this CD proves Johnny Cash’s transcendence of any musical genre. His influence and his music has stood the test of time. He truly is a living legend. We hope you enjoy listening to this tribute collection as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it together.
