JOHNNY CASH & JUNE CARTER & ROSECOE HOLCOMB 'Pete Seeger's Rainbow Quest'

  • $20.00


Pete Seeger’s Rainbow Quest TV shows were originally aired in 1965-1966; they were released in VHS form by Cap Wineberger in 1985 on his Central Sun label. Now, after another 20 years, the best of these have been revived by Shanachie Records in DVD form, and they are wonderful additions to the rather limited library of old-time, country and Bluegrass music captured on film. I had never seen the Johnny Cash/June Carter footage: it is fascinating, to say the least. A very young Cash has lots to say along with his fine songs here, and June Carter just oozes the unique, ever-engaging Carter Family charm. The second hour of this disc is devoted to Roscoe Holcomb, who plays both banjo and guitar and sings in his powerful “high lonesome” style. He shares the show with Scottish folk singer Jean Redpath. Powerful stuff here, thankfully preserved!
