Johnny Cash Concert: April 1, 1995

Alabama Theater in Myrtle Beach, SC

reviewed by Dr. Mellow

I fulfilled a dream of mine on Saturday, April 1, 1995. I saw Johnny Cash perform in Myrtle Beach, SC. I had been looking forward to it for months.

Johnny wasn't in the best of conditions for his performance. He was coughing and hacking most of the performance -- he blamed it on the pollen. And his voice noticably suffered because of it. But he was still a joy to listen to.

He performed songs ranging from old standards like "Folsom Prison Blues" to songs off his new album like "Redemption." Each song was special. Some of the show was dedicated to June Carter and the Carter family and John Carter Cash sang a few songs, too.

I'm a great big Johnny Cash fan and I was happy to finally have a chance to see him perform live. And if I ever get that chance again, I'll snatch it up.

Here's the setlist. Thanks to everyone who helped me figure out the titles to some of the songs I didn't know.
