REVIEW:

I'm not sure I can call this one "short & sweet".  This is what you would call an EP...vs. a full release...as it clock in just under 22 minutes.  Thus, the value price attached.  Johnny Cash fans will likely consider it a "must-have" as it is supposedly the last known public performance with both Johnny & June. I can't help feeling it would have been better to feature it as a bonus on another release. 

It is a very good audience recording - NOT soundboard as it has been posted elsewhere.  My question is, who was recording?...third-cousin Roger?  It almost sounds like this is a Carter Family get together that turns into some sort of fund-raiser for "young Roger and his wife" who need to move the original family house down from the hills and on to some other piece of the property!  But that doesn't seem to be the case.  The Carter Fold is a sacred shack in Hiltons, Virginia, that has been dubbed the Temple of Original Country Music.  (It  is what is said to be the real birthplace of country music, as it is the home of the Carter Family.)

One thing is for sure, the performances are heartfelt and enthusiastic.  The highlights may be obvious, Jackson and If I Were A Carpenter.  Johnny and June duet wonderfully on the latter. 

Bootlegs fill in the gaps everywhere!..no matter how strange.  Feel free to chime in and post any info or thoughts on this performance below in the comment section.
