Johnny Cash, The Carter Family: Felt Forum, New York NY
Chris Charlesworth, Melody Maker, 15 January 1977
VIEW YORK: Johnny Cash is the John Wayne of American music, a gigantic figure who towers above his country contemporaries when it comes down to the nitty-gritty of Nashville; and, like Wayne, he is physically huge, unswervingly patriotic, deeply religious, occasionally romantic, and something of a ham to boot. He is also a cowboy with a mean streak but who, all in all, favours what is good and righteous over that which is questionable.
