Johnny Cash 1968 Carousel Ballroom Live Bootleg Recorded By Owsley Headed For Release [Listen]

The next volume of the Bear’s Sonic Journals archival series won’t feature a vintage concert by the Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers Band, or Quicksilver Messenger Service. It won’t boast primal recordings by any members of the San Francisco countercultural movement at all. Instead, the next edition of Bear’s Sonic Journals will feature an April 24th, 1968 concert by Johnny Cash at San Francisco’s Carousel Ballroom as recorded by Owsley “Bear” Stanley III.

Happy Birthday June Carter Cash: Celebrate Her Solo Work, Duets With Husband Johnny Cash & More

When June Carter was born on June 23, 1929, in Maces Springs, Virginia, she was destined for a career in music. The daughter of Ezra and Maybelle Carter, the pioneering matriarch of the Carter Family, June was probably singing before she could walk. Of course, the Carter Family trio—which also included June’s uncle, A.P., and his wife, Sara—made some of country music’s earliest commercial recordings, beginning with a 1927 session in Bristol, Tennessee.

On This Day: Johnny Cash Is ‘Arrested’ at American Cancer Society ‘Jailathon’ in 1989

On June 21, 1989, Johnny Cash was arrested and thrown into jail for an unspeakable crime. The charge? He wore white socks. As part of the American Cancer Society’s “Jailathon,” Cash sat in his “cell” at Henderson, Tenn. High School to raise money for charity. The society set Cash’s bail at $25,000 for “crimes against fashion,” according to United Press International. While some friends and fans donated to the jailathon to release Cash, others donated to extend his sentence.

The Johnny Cash concert recorded by Owsley Stanley in 60s San Francisco

On September 24, the Owsley Stanley Foundation and Renew Records/BMG will release Bear’s Sonic Journals: Johnny Cash, At The Carousel Ballroom, April 24 1968, an historic and never-heard live concert recorded in San Francisco by innovative sound wizard Owsley Stanley. Captured in the heart of Haight-Ashbury, just days before the release of Cash’s iconic At Folsom Prison album (and over six months before the arrival of the equally revered At San Quentin), At The Carousel Ballroom serves as a third essential - and wholly unique - live document from the era, a moment of cultural collision, with Cash leaning into songs about society’s outcasts, while playing a venue operated by The Jefferson Airplane and Grateful Dead.

What 'Walk the Line' Got Wrong About Johnny Cash and June Carter

Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash were two strong-willed artists who shared a love story that was the stuff of myth. The Oscar-winning 2005 biopic Walk the Line, illustrated that history for mainstream audiences. And while the film, starring Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon, is certainly entertaining there is so much more to learn about the turbulent, honky-tonk romance which mesmerized a generation of country fans.
