Johnny Cash’s historic and just-released ‘At The Carousel Ballroom’ live album will be made available as part of a limited-edition Cash box set next month, featuring the 28-song performance on all-analog double vinyl alongside exclusive artwork, special LP design and rare collectibles from the era. Arriving on 14 January 2022, the box set release will offer a comprehensive multimedia look at this recently-unearthed Johnny Cash live performance; captured in the heart of hippie San Francisco by counterculture icon and “Wall Of Sound” pioneer Owsley “Bear” Stanley. Recorded in April 1968, only a few days before the release of At Folsom Prison and just months before the arrival of the equally-revered At San Quentin, ‘At The Carousel Ballroom’ serves as a third essential – and wholly unique – live document from Cash’s legend-making late 60s comeback. Released by BMG and the Owsley Stanley Foundation, the limited-edition box set for Bear’s Sonic Journals: Johnny Cash, At The Carousel Ballroom April 24, 1968 will include: 

* The 28-song collection released on exclusive psychedelic colored vinyl

* A retro re-print of the “Hello, I’m Johnny Cash” comic book

* Reproduction of the original 1968 concert poster from Steve Catron in his legendary signature style

* 12-page booklet with new essays giving context to the release from Bob Weir, John Carter Cash, Dave Schools and more.

* New original artwork by 3-time Grammy-winner Susan Archie

* Audiophile, all-analog production newly mastered from the vault tapes by Owsley’s hand-picked engineer Paul Stubblebine
