Johnny Cash Bootleg Series Continues This Fall

Legacy will release Johnny Cash's Bootleg Vol. 3 Live Around The World on October 11th. Here are the details they set over:

Legacy Recordings continues to celebrate the life and times and music! of Johnny Cash, an international superstar and American statesman who would have turned 80 years old next February 26, 2012. In that spirit, Legacy's CASH 80 campaign is launched with the third entry in the successful Cash Bootleg series, focusing on live performances in the 1950s, '60s, and '70s.

Bootleg Vol. 3 Live Around The World is a treasure trove of rare tracks spanning nearly a quarter-century of Johnny Cash performances. The shows date from 1956 (the Big "D" Jamboree in Dallas, Texas) to 1979 (the Exit Inn in Nashville). Along the way, this deluxe double-CD package of 50 musical performances (39 of them previously unreleased) makes some very exciting stops: New River Ranch, a country hoe-down in rural Rising Sun, Maryland (1962);

Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island (July 1964);

Annex 14 NCO Club, Long Binh, Vietnam (USO tour, January 1969);

The White House, at President Nixon's invitation (April 1970);

Osteraker Prison in Sweden (October 1972);

CBS Records Convention in Nashville (1973);

The Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, Virginia (1976); and

Wheeling Jamboree in Wheeling, West Virginia (October 1976).

The release of Bootleg Vol. 3 precedes the October 18th publication date of the new book, House Of Cash: The Life, Legacy and Archives of The Man In Black (Insight Editions) written by Johnny's son, John Carter Cash. An affectionate and affecting look into the Johnny Cash legend, House Of Cash is a memoir, biography and deeply personal remembrance of the man beneath the black. The lavishly illustrated book features many color and black and white photos, as well as numerous keepsake facsimile documents from the Cash family archive.

House Of Cash also dovetails with the concept behind the Cash Bootleg series. After the deaths of his parents June Carter Cash in May 2003, and Johnny Cash in September 2003, the task of going through their huge storage vault packed to the brim with memories fell to John Carter as curator and his wife Laura. They unearthed a large number of unpublished photographs, poetry and songs, master tapes dating back to the mid-50s, sketches, film reels, audio tapes, "strange hats, guitar cases, harmonicas," and much more. "The songs, poetry, and other writings; the images; and artifacts offered a deeper glimpse of who my father really was. It became my mission to share what I felt he would have liked people to know about him. This is the essence of this book."
