Johnny Cash’s live cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Don’t Think Twice It’s All Right’ has been released to streaming

It's the first time Cash's live cover from his 1968 Carousel Ballroom performance has ever been released

Johnny Cash’s live cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Don’t Think Twice It’s All Right’ has been released for the very first time.

Taken from the Man in Black’s forthcoming live album, ‘Bear’s Sonic Journals: Johnny Cash, At The Carousel Ballroom April 24, 1968’, the 28-song set saw Cash performing with his then-new wife June Carter Cash and his backing band The Tennessee Three.

Recorded by the late Owsley Stanley at the Carousel Ballroom in San Francisco, the performance included a cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Don’t Think Twice It’s All Right’. Taken from Dylan’s 1963 album The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, Cash previously shared a studio version of the cover on his 1965 album ‘Orange Blossom Special’.

Back in January, Johnny Cash was among the famous figures to be selected by former US President Donald Trump to be featured in a proposed statue-filled ‘National Garden of American Heroes’.

The plans for the Garden were cancelled by current US President Joe Biden in May.
