The upcoming release of two essential live albums from the legendary Johnny Cash has just been announced.

For the first time ever, Johnny Cash’s Man In Black: Live in Denmark 1971 will be released on CD and digital audio. The CD comes out on Friday, December 4 and is available for pre-order now. The historic performance was originally only available as a DVD, but now, the audio portion of the performance can finally be enjoyed by fans as a full-length album

Also for the first time ever, Johnny Cash’s Koncert v Praze (In Prague-Live), which was recorded in 1978 and documented the first time a major American popular country music artist performed behind the Iron Curtain, will be available as a stand-alone CD on Friday, February 5, 2016.

Koncert v Praze (In Prague-Live) was recorded at the Sportovní hala in Prague on April 11, 1978. Cash was asked to perform by the Czechoslovakian government. Cash and his team obtained work permits and traveled in a small “school bus” to find out how the Soviet bloc would respond to American music. According to the United States ambassador, Cash’s four shows did more for U.S, Czech relations than the ambassador could’ve accomplished in four years.

The iconic Johnny Cash was a symbol of nonviolent rebellion and freedom to countless fans around the world. His music continues to impact the music industry and fans today.
