Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan, Performance, 1969

By Jim Marshall
About the image

Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan during the debut of the  The Johnny Cash Show , which aired on June 7, 1969. The two legends shared a mutual admiration prior to their first meeting backstage at the Gaslight cafe in Greenwich Village, circa 1963. Dylan had followed Cash since he was a kid growing up in Minnesota. Cash had been an early supporter of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan.

In February of 1969, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash got together and recorded a number of songs, one of which ended up on Dylan’s Nashville Skyline.  The rest were later released as The Dylan Cash Session for which this image was used on the cover, and are considered an excellent example of their chemistry.  The record was released in 1975.
