One of Nelson's greatest songs, and one that shows only to clearly his influence on Eagles who would emerge a year or two later. Nelson was a remarkable artist who managed to completely reinvent himself when he began with the Stone Canyon Band, and his live album at the Troubadour is absolutely stunning - and even better in the 2CD issue of a year or so ago.

The duet with Cash is enjoyable enough doesn't have the same chemistry as the best from the series, such as those with Tony Joe White and Louis Armstrong

The youtube account with this clip has some other great Nelson vids, such as this one:

Does anyone know what show this is from?

Thanks again, my Friend. I wasn't aware of a Johnny Cash DVD on his famous TV series. Will look into this and if available in Australia PAL standard.

Great stuff!
I was lucky enough to get 60 complete Johnny Cash shows from 1969/70 on 30 dvds.
There's very little filler in them and overall a very enjoyable show.
