Offered here is one of the finest pieces of Johnny Cash memorabilia I’ve come across.

This signed program is undated, but it can be determined that it was issued between 1961 (because of the inclusion of June Carter’s photo, who joined Cash’s road show that year) and 1965 (because of the inclusion of a photo of Mr. Cash and his first wife Vivian, who divorced him in ’65).

It is quite unusual to have a program with photos of BOTH of Johnny Cash’s wives.

The program has ten (10) pages of photos with captions. Mr. Cash has signed TWO of the photos of himself in blue ballpoint. The program is also signed by all three members of Johnny Cash’s original band; Luther Perkins, Marshall Grant, and W.S Holland. June Carter was a featured performer in the show at that time, and she has signed her own picture in magenta ink.

Perhaps the rarest autograph here is that of guitarist and original member of The Tennessee Two, Luther Perkins, an important architect of the Cash sound. Mr. Perkins died tragically in a house fire in 1968, shortly after recording the landmark country LP, JOHNNY CASH AT FOLSOM PRISON. He was only 40 years old at the time of his death, and his autograph is exceedingly difficult to find.

The program measures 8.5 x 11” and is in very good condition, showing minor wear. A few of the signatures have made light impressions onto neighboring pages due to the type of ink used to print the program – this is either a bad thing or a good thing depending on your point of view!

A museum worth piece of Country music memorabilia.

The following is from the All Music Guide:

Johnny Cash was one of the most imposing and influential figures in post-World War II country music. With his deep, resonant baritone and spare, percussive guitar, he had a basic, distinctive sound. Cash didn't sound like Nashville, nor did he sound like honky tonk or rock & roll. He created his own sub-genre, falling halfway between the blunt emotional honesty of folk, the rebelliousness of rock & roll, and the world weariness of country. Cash's career coincided with the birth of rock & roll, and his rebellious attitude and simple, direct musical attack shared a lot of similarities with rock. However, there was a deep sense of history — as he would later illustrate with his series of historical albums — that kept him forever tied with country. And he was one of country music's biggest stars of the '50s and '60s, scoring well over 100 hit singles.

The Sound of Building Coffins
by Louis Maistros

Signed copies available exclusively on the net here at Louie’s Juke Joint, just click this link to order!

Quotes:

"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
