Cash to buy

It’s shaping up to be the season of Cash. In addition to that “Johnny Cash Remixed” album I told you about a while back, three more Cash-related releases have already been released or will shortly.

Today, Shout! Factory put out “The Johnny Cash Christmas Specials 1978 and 1979” on DVD. In the 1979 broadcast, Cash features his father, Ray, and older brother, Roy , in a visit to the Dyess farm where he grew up. Folks like Tony Orlando, Billy Graham, Tom T. Hall and Andy Kaufman also guest star.

On Oct. 7, Anchorless Records releases “All Aboard: A Tribute to Johnny Cash,” featuring punk and alt-rock covers of JC by the likes of Ben Nichols, the Dresden Dolls, MxPx and the Gaslight Anthem. All proceeds go to the Syrentha Savio Endowment, a non-profit that provides financial assistance to women who can’t afford the expense of fighting breast cancer.

Then on Oct. 14, Columbia/Legacy releases the two-disc, one DVD box set, “Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison: Legacy Edition.” It features previously unreleased songs and a new documentary film that includes footage from inside the prison.
