This is a live performance by Johnny Cash on the German-based music TV show "Beat-Club", back in 1972. Johnny is in top for here, and his back-up also features a guest appearance by Carl Perkins. There's also an appearance by his wife June Carter Cash & his sister-in-law Anita Carter (on one song.) He does his big hits here, and the band is really tight. This is a great performance from The Man In Black.

A copy of the video presentation compiled from clips off of Boxcar Willies DVDs, Boxcar Willie (His Story) and Boxcar Willie ( The Comedy Side). Both DVDs are still available from his website. I compiled this 2 hour tribute video and named it Boxcar Willie (Gone But Not Forgotten) with the intention of showing it at the Civic Center here in Strathmore but I had to cancel when it became evident that the ticket sales were not going to cover my cost for hosting the event so I decided to share it here instead so his fans from all over the world could enjoy. If you enjoyed this video please tell us about your experiences with this incredibly talented celebrity and also like share and subscribe to our channel.

My favorite Waylon concert. I do not own the copyright of this recording. I strongly recommend the original, high quality DVD for optimum enjoyment. With his great voice, hard-driving music and charismatic stage persona, Waylon Jennings (1937-2002) was one of country music’s biggest stars, and arguably its most naturally gifted. Born into small-town poverty in West Texas, music was his passion from a young age. Having started playing the guitar at eight, by his early teens he was playing in bands. After leaving school at 14, he worked for a few years picking cotton and in various other menial jobs, and then moved to the nearby city of Lubbock, where he got a job as a radio D.J. While working there he met Lubbock-born Buddy Holly, who, though only a year older than Waylon, was already one of the biggest names in popular music. They became good friends and soon Waylon was playing (bass) in Buddy’s touring band. In the middle of a gruelling three-week winter tour by bus with several other big-name performers, Buddy chartered a small plane to fly him and some of the others to the next stop on the tour. Waylon was supposed to be on the flight but he gave up his seat to J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson, who had a bad cold. When Buddy learned of this, he joked with Waylon, saying he hoped the bus froze up on the way, with Waylon joking that he hoped Buddy’s plane crashed. It did, killing all on board. Waylon would remain deeply affected by this event for the rest of his life. Throughout the 1960s, Waylon released several successful albums and established lifelong friendships with Johnny Cash (with whom he shared an apartment in Nashville) and Willie Nelson, as well as touring extensively. His music at this time was veering away from the staid traditions of the country genre, and by the early 1970s, rebelling against the sterile conventions of the Nashville studio system, which favored a MOR sound with slick session musicians and syrupy strings, Waylon demanded and won the contractual freedom to record using his own touring band, playing the rough-edged, rock-influenced music they had been playing night after night in packed honky tonks all over the country. The result was a revolution in country music, generally dubbed “The Outlaw Movement”, though Waylon was not fond of the label. There followed years of superstardom, chart-topping albums, cocaine addiction (with a comically unsuccessful attempt by the DEA to bust him), bankruptcy, almost constant touring, collaboration with his long-time friends and fellow ‘outlaws’, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson (The Highwaymen), TV work, and perhaps the best autobiography of a popular music artist ever written (actually, co-written, but it’s Waylon’s authentic voice throughout). This concert, recorded in 1989 for the long-running American TV music program, Austin City Limits, shows Waylon at his full-on best. It also features the legendary pedal steel guitar player, Ralph 'Moon' Mooney, and Waylon's wife, country singer Jessi Colter. Ya'll say you're ready?

I found part of this clip elsewhere, but missing Cash's extended spoken introduction. I hate to sound like a college nerd (because I'm not, I just married one), but the additional context his remarks add make the song even more impressive to me. This was from the February 17, 1971 episode of his show, by which time the Suits had forced him to start doing "theme" shows. This is from the best of the bunch, "Johnny Cash On Campus," which also featured Neil Young and James Taylor. It's super cool to hear Cash introduce what would go on to become his signature song to zero crowd applause. It's like hearing a recording of Zepplin play "Stairway..." to audience indifference before the album was released. Shiver me timbers!

"The Wabash Cannonball" is an American folk song about a fictional train, thought to have originated in the late nineteenth century. Its first documented appearance was on sheet music published in 1882, titled "The Great Rock Island Route" and credited to J. A. Roff. All subsequent versions contain a variation of the chorus: Now listen to the jingle, and the rumble, and the roar, As she dashes thro' the woodland, and speeds along the shore, See the mighty rushing engine, hear her merry bell ring out, As they speed along in safety, on the "Great Rock-Island Route." A rewritten version by William Kindt appeared in 1904 under the title "Wabash Cannon Ball". The Carter Family made one of the first recordings of the song in 1929, though it was not released until 1932. Another popular version was recorded by Roy Acuff in 1936. It is a signature song of the Stephen F. Austin State University Lumberjack Marching Band, the Kansas State University Marching Band, the University of Texas Longhorn Band, and of the Indiana State University Marching Sycamores, as ISU is close to the Wabash River. It was also used as the theme song by the USS Wabash (AOR5). The song "The Wabash Cannonball" is part of the The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list In addition to The Carter Family's 1929 recording and Roy Acuff's 1936 recording, many hillbilly artists recorded "The Wabash Cannonball" during the Great Depression era of the 1930s and 1940s. Bing Crosby recorded the song for his album "Bing Crosby Sings The Great Country Hits". The song increased in popularity during this time. In the wake of the song's popularity, the Wabash Railroad named its express run between Detroit and St. Louis as the Wabash Cannon Ball in 1949, the only actual train to bear the name, which it carried until discontinued in 1971. However, the train was named after the song, not the other way around. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wabash_Cannonball
