WARREN'S PICK: "On April 24,1968 Johnny Cash along with June Carter and the Tennessee Three played a wild gig at The Carousel Ballroom in Haight-Ashbury. Recorded by Owsley Stanley, this never before released show serves as an incredible snapshot of a band firing on all cylinders in the heart of San Francisco's counter-culture scene." -WG
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. The live album, which will be released on 2LP, features new essays by Johnny and June Carter Cash's son John Carter Cash, Owsley Stanley's son Starfinder Stanley, The Grateful Dead's Bob Weir, and Widespread Panic's Dave Schools, as well as new art by Susan Archie.
