This ain’t no bar fight (though I’m fairly confident that Cash would win). No, this is a love fest. Johnny Cash and Nick Cave have more in common, musically, than many other combos. Cave has claimed that it was the fire and brimstone preachers of the American south that have inspired him the most in his songwriting, while Cash lived it by being raised there!
I’ve been wanting to host this special for a while now, but it’s not easy with only two hours to cover two men of such musical prominence. I’m sure the critics can tear my sets apart, which is fine. How would you improve on this show? Leave comments. In retrospect, I could have played Cave’s version of “The Singer”, and left out the Cash/Dylan duet. Other than that I could have used about six more hours to really do them justice. Thanks to everyone who offered their suggestions on my FB thread.
Next Monday night will feature lots of new music and some psych jams.
