dylan-cash-sessions1969.jpgAs mentioned a couple of weeks ago in Bob Dylan :: After The Crash (1967-1970), back in 2005 AD posted the unreleased tracks from Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash’s 1968 sessions. With the Legacy reissue of Johnny Cash At Folsom Prison and the October release of Bob Dylan’s Bootleg Series Volume 8 (more on that later) a re-post felt both warranted and appropriate.

This is a true peice of Americana — two iconic masters of their craft conversing with one another via song. Recorded throughout 1969 on three separate occasions, these recordings mark an important historical collaboration between two American poets/musicians. Even a casual fan of either artist should at least give these a cursory listen. Great stuff.

  5. Thanks for posting. Such a cool collection of songs. Beyond strange to hear Dylan’s voice so not nasal

  6. Thanks for those! Two of my favorite artists of all time. Fantastic!

  7. this is truly special. thanks so much for finding and sharing

  8. […] In lieu of an accompanying track, I’d like to point you to the Aquarium Drunkard who has a whole album of a show played by Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash in 1969. Two of my favorite artists of all time – magical. Check it out here. […]

  9. THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU !! As always, a great post. I was only familiar with “Girl From The North Country”, so to hear all of this is truly a treasure. Will the future have artists of this stature doing things together? Or, has the best already happened?

  11. Wow, Either you were reading my mind, or you check what people search for… I read the post about the Johnny Cash legacy edition yesterday and searched high and low for these tracks… Thanks so much for putting them back up!

  13. Technically, these sessions are from 1969.

  14. this was one of the first “bootlegs” i ever got from BNP (Blanks & Postage).

    don’t think i’ll ever be doing that again!

  15. a musical gift ……. bless you!

  16. I m looking forward to next UPdate!

  17. Thanks! I remember you had these up before. In my stupidity, I didn’t download them then. thanks for putting them back up.

  18. I do have a question – Why wasn’t an official release ever made of these? or what is the story behind these? Was it just them hanging out and having some fun in the studio or did they really plan on putting out an album, and it just never happened?

  21. Thanks for the gem.I recall seeing some of this on a video of the J. Cash show somewhere.

  22. According to bobsboots in your “Details” link, shouldn’t “One Too Many Mornings” be track # 1? Was this not made available for download for a reason?

    Yes, it is an incredible recording! Thank you for sharing.

  23. Only thing better would be Pogues/ Dylan. Anyone?

  32. I enjoyed streaming these thru the Yahoo Mediaplayer today, and my co-workers dug the playlist as well. Thanks a lot for bringing this stuff to my attention. I would like to have the album. Where can I either purchase or download it? Atop the tracks, I see “DOWNLOAD:”, but none of the ways I’d ordinarily download an mp3 seem to work. I visited emusic, as per the ad at the bottom of the tracks, but they indicate they don’t carry any Bob Dylan albums, and their search window doesn’t recognize any “Cash/Dylan Sessions”. Nothing on Amazon. What’s the nifty trick that’ll get these into my library?

  48. I agree there is at least one more track, “somewhere”.

    I recall a cinema film with a title along the lines “Johnny Cash, a man, his world and his music” which included a duet (with BD) singing “One too many mornings”.
    I´m sure it was from this time. It was in a recording studio, rather than on the set of the TV show. Hence the earlier date listed there (on the website, mentioned in post 22 above).

  49. I must second Mark’s question: where is the original track #1, “One Too Many Mornings”?

  50. OMG. Thank you thank you thank you! :)

  51. […] It is rare that you wake up on a Saturday morning and find a wonderful internet present waiting for you.

  54. Thanks for the tunes, Drunkard; and thanks for the tip KM — I don’t have a “right click” on my MacBook, but I found the key combo to get the job done.

  55. RE: “One Too Many Mornings” The boot of this show I have on an old CD-R did not list it, instead beginning with “Good Ole Mountain Dew”. If someone has it, I will post it here. -AD

  56. […] Read and download now. […]

  57. […] The 1969 studio session includes versions of Cash classics “Big River”, “Ring of Fire”, and “I Walk the Line” as well the duo’s take on Dylan’s “Girl from the North Country”, which also famously appeared on the Nashville Skyline album.  The real gems though are the songs the two recorded together from a wide range of influences including takes on “You Are My Sunshine” and “Mountain Dew”, two Jimmie Rodgers’ covers, the Carl Perkins’ rockabilly classic “Matchbox”, and the gospel hymn “Just A Closer Walk With Thee”.  Either way you slice it, these late 60’s gems featuring two giants of American music are a must hear!  Check them out here.

  75. For those of you on Macs with single-button mice or trackpads:

    Hold down the Control key, and, while holding it down, click on the link. A menu should pop up where you can choose “Save File As” or something like that (each browser uses slightly different terminology).

    In general control-clicking will do the same thing as right clicking, so it’s a useful Mac skill to cultivate!
