THE FABULOUS JOHNNY CASH SHOW. (2) March 14, 1961, Houston, Texas. This is incredible. One of those old fashioned country package shows with Roger Miller, George Jones, Rose Maddox, Gordon Terry and others. To my ears, must have been in glorious mono. Wow, man.

APRIL 1, 1984. Jones Country Park, Texas. Johnny & June show up for a show at one of George Jones' theme parks that he various owned over the year. George opened the show with a joke about being a "no show" and then doing "I Got Stripes" with Johnny. Delightful.
