Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, the Carter Family, the Statler Brothers: Queen Elizabeth Hall, London

Richard Green, New Musical Express, 25 September 1971

THE LEGEND that has grown up around Johnny Cash got its first in-person airing in Britain for three years at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on Saturday night during a two-hour-plus show of which Cash himself performed for well over sixty minutes. The man's character was present in all of his dozen or so numbers and earned for him a rousing ovation reserved only for stars of his brilliance.
