Johnny Cash: Pa (CD)

(2007/SONY EU) 24 tracks
The words Johnny Cash and Prisons have been inextrica-bly linked for more than half a century. Prison reform had been a major issue with Cash and over the years he had been a consistent and high-profile voice on the subject. He had spoken out during many interviews and, on 26 July, 1972, a few months before the Osteriker concert, addressed a US Senate sub-committee working towards prison legislation. He was introduced by Senator William Brock from the state of Tennessee who, in his introduction of Johnny Cash, mentioned the scheduled performance. During his address Cash stated that reform was necessary to give a man some hope in prison and to give him encouragement to be a better citizen while in prison and thus becoming a better citizen when he is released. If any further proof was needed to demonstrate Cash's affinity with the prisoner we need look no further than Glen Sherley. A convict when Cash played Folsom Pri-son in 1968, he walked free three years later thanks to Cash who had agreed to employ him.
Johnny Cash gave his first free concert in 1957 at the Huntsville State Prison, Texas and then on New Years Day 1960 he played at the notorious San Quentin Prison in California. In the front row at the concert was future country music star Merle Haggard. Over the next ten years he would play close to thirty prison shows with his appearances at Folsom Prison in 1968 and San Quentin in 1969 recorded for record release. However, Cash had never played a prison concert outside the confines of the USA. This would all change on 3 October 1972 when he brought his show to the Osteraker Prison situated a few miles north of Sweden's capital city, Stockholm. It was Olof Arvidsson, a celebrity lawyer, who was instrumental in making the event a reality. Arvidsson had met Cash previously and talked to him about giving a concert at a prison in Sweden. Cash was enthusiastic and agreed to do the show for free. He also suggested that the show be filmed and recorded.

Cash had per-formed enough concerts in front of convicts to understand what they wanted to hear.

Arvidsson then approached the Swedish Prisons and Probation Administration who gave their permission for the concert to go ahead, not least because of the PR angle. They also chose the venue. Osteriker Prison, built in 1969, was a relatively new facility and had good security provisions in place along with a suitable auditorium in which to stage the show. However, not all the arrangements went smoothly. Cash's idea to have the show fil-med fell foul of the Prisons and Probation Administration. Legal reasons meant that the concert, and more importantly the inmates, could not be filmed but arrangements were put in place to record the show for record release.

Cash had performed enough concerts in front of convicts to un-derstand what they wanted to hear. His shows were always a mix of songs with crime, prison, separation, loneliness and despair as their central theme and whilst you would expect to hear applause at the end of a song, there were moments during these performances that the prisoners would react to individual lines that, in many

cases, were very close to home.

Backing Cash at this concert were The Tennessee Three (Bob Wootton, Marshall Grant and W. S. Holland) and Carl Perkins who had all worked with Cash on his 1969 San Quentin show. Adding to the sound was Larry Butler, who played keyboards and also co-produced the album with Charlie Bragg. Cash had even learned some phrases in Swedish which was no doubt appreciated by the audience.
In front of one hundred and thirty inmates the band kicked off the performance at approxima-tely 1:10pm with an instrumental version of Cash's signature tune I Walk The Line. Cash is then intro-duced and turns to his big hit from the recent San Quentin concert, A By Named Sue, as his opening number. This elicits an enthusiastic response which Cash manages to maintain throughout the entire performance.

Cash turns to the Kris Kristofferson songbook for Sunday Morning Coming Down and also sings two more of his songs, Me And Bobby McGee and Help Me Make It Through The Night during the show. It is clear from the response that the audience are well aware of the music of this talented singer-songwriter.
Of course a show like this would not work without its share of prison songs and taking into account the venue he changes the lyrics of San Quentin, substituting the name of the prison and singing `Osteraker you've been living hell to me.' Making the song more personal to those in the auditorium brought forth a similar reaction to that received when Cash first performed the song in 1969. Other prison songs include Folsom Prison Blues, Life Of A Pri-soner, City Jail, The Prisoners Song and Orleans Parish Prison. The latter was performed twice and it is interesting to note that a different version appeared on the original release of Pa osterii ker. Glen Sherley, a former inmate at Folsom, had written Greystone Chapel, which Cash performed at the prison back in 1968, and although the parole board would not allow him to leave the USA to be at the show, Cash did choose to sing another of his songs, Lookin' Back in Anger.
Carl Perkins had been a regular part of the Johnny Cash Show for many years and was always given his own spot to showcase his incredible talent. With rocking versions of the Tommy Tucker classic High Heel Sneakers and his own sig-nature tune Blue Suede Shoes he doesn't disappoint...

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Cash, Johnny"

Johnny Cash

Geboren am 26.2. 1932 in Kíngsland -Arkansas.
Gestorben am 12. September 2003 in Nashville, Tennessee

"No one but no one more original than Johnny Cash."

So lautete der Text einer Columbia-Anzeige aus den 60er Jahren. Wie wahr! Damals. Und während seiner gesamten, fast 50jährigen Karriere. Einer Karriere, die am Freitag, den 12. September 2003, morgens um 2 Uhr in einem Krankenhaus in Nashville ihr Ende fand.

James Mangold, Regisseur des Films 'Walk The Line' über das Leben von Johnny Cash (mit Joaquin Phoenix in der Titelrolle), hat beim Interview in Los Angeles versichert:"Ich hätte diesen Film nie gedreht, wenn ich nicht auf die Cash-Boxsets des Labels Bear Family gestoßen wäre. Ein Fan war ich zwar schon, seit ich 'At Folsom Prison' als Kind in der Plattensammlung meines Vaters zwischen lauter merkwürdigen John-Denver-Scheiben entdeckt habe. Aber erst durch die Fotos und Begleittexte der Bear-Family-Boxen entwickelte ich ein Gespür für die Ära. Sie waren auch beim Set- und Kostümdesign eine große Hilfe."

Cash war zwischen 1951 und 1954 als Angehöriger der US Army in Landsberg am Lech stationiert, wo er seine erste Band gründete, die Landsberg Barbarians.

Beginn der Plattenkarríere 1955 bei Sun Records. Veröffentlichte bis heute mehrere hundert Singles und Langspielplatten, Dutzende seiner Songs wurden Klassiker (z. B. "I Walk The Line", "A Boy Named Sue", ”Folsom Prison Blues”). Cash -"The man in black" - war der erste US-Topstar, der in deutscher Sprache aufnahm: Am 25. 10. 1959 entstanden in den Bradley Film & Recording Studios von Nashville - Tennessee die Titel “Wo ist zu Hause, Mama" und "Viel zu spät" mit Luther Perkins (Gitarre), Marshall Grant (Bass) und Michael Kazak (Drums); es produzierte Don Law.

Beide Titel wurden in Deutschland von Bear Family Records auf LP erst veröffentlicht. Als eine Cash-Tournee anstand, folgte die Single-Ausgabe der CBS. Mit deutschen Musikern hatte Cash im Juni 1965 in Frankfurt die Backing-Tracks für drei weitere deutschsprachige Titel aufgenommen, “Kleine Rosmarie", "Besser so, Jenny-Joe" und "In Virginia". Den Gesang fügte er am 19. und 20. 6. in den Columbia Studios von New York hinzu. Während dieser Sessions sang er außerdem auf das Original-Band von “I Walk The Line" den deutschen Text "Wer kennt den Weg?".

Produzenten dieser Aufnahmen waren Don Law und Gerd Schmidt. Als Schauspieler sah man Cash u. a. in den US-Produktionen “Five Minutes To Live” ("Noch 5 Minuten zu leben", 1962) und “A Gunfight" (”Duell in Mexiko" bzw. "Rivalen des Todes",1970).
