House of Cash is an unprecedented look at the life and inspirations of the Man in Black, by none other than his namesake son, John Carter Cash. Gathering together previously unpublished photographs, lyrics, art, notes, and recollections from the Cash family archives, John Carter paints a portrait of his father’s inner life, and the values he imparted to his son and family. Each of the 160 pages is beautifully illustrated and there are a number of pop-out features and pockets featuring high quality reproductions of rare Cash memorabilia. A record of a deep and ongoing conversations between father and son about what matters in life, House of Cash explores Johnny Cash’s quest to live deliberately as he worked to determine his values, share them with those close to him, and reaffirm them on a daily basis. Topics covered include the nature of creativity, the responsibilities that come with fatherhood and friendship, the need for humility and morality, the value of reading, and the obligation we all have to sympathize with the downtrodden. An intimate exploration of the personality and legacy of Johnny Cash, this is a unique portrait of a deeply spiritual, creative, and passionate soul whose music sprang from the way he lived. Bill Miller says “This is a beautiful, lavishly illustrated coffee table book which belongs in the collection of every Johnny Cash fan. I treasure my copy.”

 

folsombook.jpg Johnny Cash At Folsom Prison: The Making of a Masterpiece $24.95

When on January 13, 1968, Johnny Cash, already recognized as a founder of rock and modern country music, performed at the California penitentiary made famous by his "Folsom Prison Blues," he took a large step toward superstardom. In this comprehensive look at the gig and the album that came out of it, Streissguth details how much of the song Cash lifted from previous works and how much actual commonality existed between Cash and the prisoners, who constituted a sympathetic but tough audience and lent a boisterous, enthusiastic backdrop to the recording. Streissguth also holds forth on the concert's and the album's implications for Cash's subsequent career and for rock's thereafter renewed relations with country. As an important piece of pop, rock, and country-music historiography and as a fitting remembrance of the late Man in Black, this photo-laden tidbit is essential. 100+ photos not seen before. Hard Cover.

1038s.jpg Cash: The Autobiography (Paperback, 432 pages) $12.95

A humble, happy look back from the man in black. Johnny Cash answers to many names; he's JR to childhood friends and family, John to bandmates, and Johnny to fans. ``Cash'' is the name wife June Carter reserves for ``the star, the egomaniac.'' The star gets plenty of ink here, from the early days at Sun Records--with Elvis, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis--to his current status as a darling of the alternative rock set. But it's the private man who's most compelling and surprisingly complex. Cash writes candidly of his recurring addiction to amphetamines and his concomitant shortcomings as a father, addresses his spirituality without sounding maudlin, and displays genuine humility at his success and very little bitterness at his abandonment by the country music establishment. A more accurate subtitle might be ``The Second Autobiography,'' since this volume covers some of the same ground as Cash's previous work, The Man in Black (1986), but a life so chock full of oddments (he once started a forest fire with an automobile and on another occasion was nearly killed by an ostrich) and renegade stands (he opposed Vietnam, heresy to the nation's blue- collar constituency) easily merits a second look. Organized around the domiciles where he divides his time--homes in Tennessee, Florida, and Jamaica, as well as his tour bus--the book stays grounded in the present, mixing reflections on his 40-year career with a running chronicle of an ongoing tour. This novel approach minimizes the as-told-to blahs that plague many a celebrity autobiography and highlights Cash's wry humor and introspection. With the help of Carr, editor of Country Music magazine, Cash keeps the pace lively until the end, when the roses he throws everyone from grandkids to music biz buddies bog things down. A poignant autobiography from one the most iconoclastic talents on the American music scene. (32 pages b&w photos, not seen) Out of print in this version.

iwasthere_s.jpg I Was There When It Happened: My Life with Johnny Cash (AUTOGRAPHED) $59.95

Endorsed by Johnny Cash's daughter, Rosanne, his brother, Tommy, and featuring a foreword by The Statler Brothers, who credit him with launching their career, this biography by longtime band member Marshall Grant takes its title from a gospel tune Cash recorded in 1957. As one of Cash's original bandmates (Grant was a founding member of Johnny Cash and the Tennessee Two) and thereafter a member of his inner circle until his death in 2003, Grant recounts the career of the legendary Man in Black--including the devastating spiral of drug abuse that Grant says ultimately destroyed him--with fly-on-the-wall, warts-and-all detail...and the unique, unvarnished perspective of one of the few people still living who really was there when it happened. Hand-signed by Marshall Grant.
