Vault #45

Beginning on April 29th 1973 and lasting for another six evenings, the "A Week To Remember" concerts dreamt up by music industry icon Clive Davis were a stunning way to highlight the Murderers Row line-up of artists that were then signed to Columbia Records. With highlights like Miles Davis, the Staples Singers, Bruce Springsteen, Earth, Wind and Fire along with many others, the seven nights of shows at the Ahmanson Theater in Los Angeles was, by all accounts, a remarkable showcase of the clout the legendary label wielded.

Of particular interest is the live performance by Johnny Cash. Touching on just about every song one would wish for him to play at a concert in 1973, the stacked set list includes choice guest appearances from both his wife June Carter Cash and fellow Sun Records alumnus, Carl Perkins. Opening with the iconic "Big River" through a heavy take on Kris Kristofferson's "Sunday Morning Coming Down" a breezy jaunt through "A Boy Named Sue" to "Hey Porter" to "I Walk The Line" to "Jackson" and "Folsom Prison Blues" it's a wonder at how many downright PURE hits were just...the songs in his set.

Third Man Records, in conjunction with Sony Music and the estate of Johnny Cash are ecstatic to release A Night to Remember. Presented here for the first time ever is the full show multi-track recording of Cash's performance from that spring night of 1973. A master class in a show if there ever was one, this production holds up with Cash's previous live albums while still exposing a side to the Man in Black not displayed on his canonical sets from San Quentin and Folsom Prison. Pressed on two discs on a new vinyl color we’re calling “vintage white", this double LP is yet another prime entry in the already-expansive Cash discography.

As if that weren't enough, Davis had the foresight to professionally FILM these concerts. While not capturing the entire set, the revelatory backstage footage is worth the price of admission alone. The high-quality, multi-camera shoot is gorgeous and immediately transports the viewer back forty-plus years and this previously unseen moment of Cash in full command of his performance and a crowd just lapping it up.

Over the past several years, Grammy Award Winning producer John Carter Cash has embarked on an ambitious project pairing both lyrics and poems written by Johnny Cash and placing them with current artists to create an entirely new collaboration. The Forever Words album of 2018 was inspiring and continuing on that path, a 7-inch including two previously unreleased Forever Words pieces accompany this package. We couldn’t be more excited to have the inimitable Ruston Kelly sharing his earth-shaking romp on “Dark and Bloody Ground.” On the flip side, a super-secret MYSTERY ARTIST to be revealed soon. Feel free to start guessing. It's a doozy. Pressed on jaw-dropping gold colored vinyl, this single is a thing of pure beauty.

We can think of no better way of not only keeping the music and memory of Johnny Cash alive than by these collaborations with artists out there today who we feel are both important and worth sharing with the Third Man world.

Sign up now to receive this package, the deadline for orders is midnight CT July 31st.

is this the first vault package with absolutely nothing to do with Jack White/Third Man Records? Wanda Jackson/Pearl Jam were at least recorded by/at TMR.

I guess Trout Mask Replica also had nothing to do with Jack White/TMR...

Technically, they included Jack’s epitaph to Don “...in glorious, psychedelic silkscreen broadside wonderment.”

Who knows, maybe he’s the special mystery artist.

...or did he just ok the relentless and monotonous merchandise that was to follow.

Honestly I haven't bought a Vault in a while now, $100 CAD is more than it would cost me to get the original albums or even the full package a few months after release.

I think it is a great VP for people who love Johnny Cash. I like some songs but not enough to spend 80$.

I was really hoping for something much better than this when my subscription renewed a few weeks ago.

Without touring pre-sale benefits and three months of lackluster vault exclusives and platinum member store drops leaves my April 30th renewal as a resounding disappointment.

I mean, I love Johnny Cash but if I decide I want to spin some Johnny cash I’m probably going with one of the three albums I already have, not a random live show.

I get spending the bucks elsewhere, I've skipped some.
But I'm looking forward to this one. In fact, I'd be ok if they do 1 a year that has no jack. It is the TMR Vault after all.
And, I read this one as a partnership with Sony Music, which i think speaks to the quality of TMP.
The Margo vault had a 7" recorded in the blue room...but?

I'd love to see Levon Helm get this treatment.
