Recently I visited Waterloo records in Austin wherein I to buy Johnny Cash’s At Folsom Prison vinyl. Because that starters if you have never listened to this record it is a must! that was recorded at Folsom jail so you have the right to hear the prisoner’s reaction to Cash’s songs. That is important an remarkable record. ~ above the earlier of the document was a copy that a letter Cash had written around prison and also his experiences in prison.
This letter peaked my interest as i realized how small I actually knew around Johnny Cash. I love this letter for countless reasons yet mostly since he common his experience in a means that make me see how much he taken these males at Folsom Prison. Having been in prison a couple of times, the voiced his opinion top top the “rehabilitation” the prisoners and also their reemergence’s right into a culture that to be to welcome castle with open up arms. With this descriptive letter you can nearly hear the disappointed in Cash’s deep base voice. It is a relocating letter and does its job in exposing some of the flaws of the prison system. Relocating away from his bad boy photo I want to focus in on my primary interest, Johnny and June.
June appears twice in Cash’s At Folsom Prison and also wow do they make a an excellent team. From what I have read they had a partnership that to be incomparable. It take it a couple of times but when Cash propose in 1968 at a live performance in London, Ontario June finally said yes. She was a good supporting force in his life together she assisted him get rid of his medicine addiction. She was completely dedicated to him and also he the same. Cash’s letter to she on her date of birth is one for the records according to Taste the Country, rojo Stones, Huffington Post and also more.
Can you feel his feeling in this letter? His deep unwavering love because that June is love stopping and admirable. Also after her death Cash to be completely devoted to her. In his last public appearance he said, “The soul of June Carter overshadows me tonight with the love she had actually for me and the love I have for her. We attach somewhere between here and heaven. She came down for a brief visit, ns guess, from sky to visit through me tonight to give me courage and also inspiration prefer she constantly has.” You can’t tell me that you don’t want a love favor Johnny and June’s.
Heidi Newfield’s track “Johnny and June” around sums that up for me. What around you?
