Info: This is an excellent audio torrent, in quality and in the uniqueness of content. A real gem for JC fans.
From info picked from the announce thread on Dime, it seems that the first show was from 1956 and not 1958 as first described.
A guy made some research and found out that JC had performed live on Country Style USA in 1956, also in Get Rhythm \"...JC says it\'s their LATEST RELEASE from SUN...it was released on April 2, 1956, as the B side to the single...I Walk the Line\"
Seems like this is better than any other early recording that exists.
One of the Dime comments: THIS IS PRICELESS, so priceless, very few AVERAGE DOWNLOADERS/Collectors, actually realize, what a GEM this is. Hardcore fans should know. Those pesky bootleggers SHOULD KNOW
Notes: (From the original uploader):
****JOHNNY CASH TORRENT WAR****
OK this is more like a nuclear bomb than an opening shot….
****If you try and sell this on eBay “Sooner or later god’ll cut you down”. ***
Nothing I can type will do this torrent justice….
AND THE ORIGINAL TENNESSEE TWO….
LUTHER PERKINS: LEAD GUITAR
MARSHALL GRANT: UPRIGHT BASS
So I will say 1) this has been hoarded long enough.
And 2) …….
SUPPORT THIS TIMELESS ARTIST !!!

These are vintage radio broadcast transcription discs (at times you can “hear” the vinyl which adds flavor). The sound quality is amazing.
I received these many years ago in a trade and transferred them from cassette. This is as good as it gets.
