Johnny Cash—The Man, His World, His Music

First issued on video in 1985, this is a fully absorbing, occasionally revealing insight into the country legend's late '60s heyday. A fly-on-the-wall documentary charting a typically grinding US tour, Cash is never less than engrossing, be it gleefully jamming with a nonchalant Dylan (a searing version of Billy Edd Wheeler's "Blistered"), duetting with 'er indoors June Carter ("Jackson") or cutting rug with lead guitarist Carl Perkins ("Blue Suede Shoes").

First issued on video in 1985, this is a fully absorbing, occasionally revealing insight into the country legend’s late ’60s heyday. A fly-on-the-wall documentary charting a typically grinding US tour, Cash is never less than engrossing, be it gleefully jamming with a nonchalant Dylan (a searing version of Billy Edd Wheeler’s “Blistered”), duetting with ‘er indoors June Carter (“Jackson”) or cutting rug with lead guitarist Carl Perkins (“Blue Suede Shoes”). The lack of narration and often shaky?occasionally irksome?camerawork only serve to make the off-guard moments all the more arresting: hunting (alone, of course), paying respects at the site of Wounded Knee, killing time on the bus. Twenty-two songs in all.
