Broadcash Feat. Bobby Solo - Plays Cash (10") 10"
This year is the 50th anniversary of the release of Live at Folsom Prison (a song weaved into Cashs identity) and the perfect occasion to celebrate it, with the advent of a new group: Bobby Solo and BroadCash, a group which has played the Johnny Cash songbook for 10 years throughout Italy, keeping the Sun Records roots alive. Bobby Solo needs no introduction. A huge fan of country and rocknroll, he was one of the first to bring the music to Italy throughout his long career. Asked about Johnny Cash, Bobby reminisces: "Ah, Johnny.I met him at the Rammstein American base in Germany in the 1960s. He was playing with the Carter family, with the Statler Brothers on vocals and Carl Perkins on guitar. He was magnetic".He met BroadCash in a sold out, sweaty gig in Pisa where he was the guest star. A bond started followed in quick succession by the recording of four old-school songs: I Walk the Line, Cry Cry Cry, Folsom Prison Blues and Big River, released on limited-edition vinyl on the Area Pirata label. Four songs born in the hills and the fields which unite Italy and the USA, a heartfelt tribute which will raise the roof at the next show.
