Johnny Cash - Live in Amsterdam 1972

Image
By the early 1970s, Johnny Cash had established his public image as 'The Man in Black'.

He regularly performed dressed all in black, wearing a long black knee-length coat.

This outfit stood in contrast to the costumes worn by most of the major country acts in his day, that is rhinestone suit and cowboy boots.

In 1971, Cash wrote the song 'Man in Black' to help explain his dress code, "We're doing mighty fine I do suppose/In our streak of lightning cars and fancy clothes/But just so we're reminded of the ones who are held back/Up front there ought to be a man in black."

He and his band had initially worn black shirts because that was the only matching color they had among their various outfits, and he claimed to like wearing black both on and off stage.

From the 'Man in Black' era this is Johnny Cash live at The Nieuwe RAI, Amsterdam, Holland, on the 26th February 1972.

Set list is:

1. I Walk the Line intro / A boy Named Sue.
2. Ramblin' Around / …
