Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash had formed a mutual admiration society even before they met in the early s. The record sounded like a voice from the middle of the Earth. It was so powerful and moving. I had a portable record player I'd take along on the road, and I'd put on Freewheelin' backstage, then Girl Of The North Country - Bob Dylan - The Dylan Cash Sessions 1969 out and do my show, then listen again as soon as Jean-Luc Ponty - The Gift Of Time came off.
Cash wrote the young Dylan a fan letter, and they began corresponding. When they met at the Newport Folk Festival, Cash gave Dylan his guitar as a gesture of Invisible - Dream Evil - Evilized and admiration.
Five years later, when Dylan was in Nashville recording his ninth studio album, Cash was recording in the studio next door. He decided to drop in. On February 17 and 18,Cash and Dylan recorded more than a dozen duets. The others were never officially released, but have long been circulating as bootlegs.
One Youtuber posted a compilation back in It was taped on May 1, at the Ryman Auditorium in downtown Nashville. A rough video clip around the 30 minute mark captures the moment.
Despite Dylan's reported nervousness, the performance was well-received. They were just raving about electricity and magnetism. And all I did was just sit there hitting G chords.

Do you know if this was made into an album? Hi Deborah, To the best of my knowledge, most of the recordings were never officially released. Pretty good stuff from my two favorite 20th century artists. Only the one song Girl From the North Country was officially released.
And a good one. The songs have been released many times on differntly named bootlegs. Around the same time, Dylan also recorded several songs with George Harrison.
The Dylan-Cash sessions are much better. Sorry, George. Wow thanks for shairing. Love both these guys and together they are fabulous. I would love to have a recording of this. With no writhing on the label and the cover is black and white could this be a bootleg? Seeing Johnny Cash crack up listening to a playback of a take is priceless. Seeing him do it on a Dylan session is good, too. This is as good as it gets. These two great men just know how to put their talents together to have come up with this gem.
