This is Johnny Cash

I recently bought a job lot of 30 soundtracks for next to nothing, there were only 4 or 5 that I was actually interested in so I have 25 that will probably never get played, or no more than once anyway. Amongst the 30 was this:

It’s André Kostelanetz And His Orchestra ‎– Grand Canyon Suite, which is a very good listen actually, but what is rathe rodd about it is over 11 minutes of Johnny Cash explaining how they got the sound effects for the Grand Canyon Suite, about taking mules into the canyon bottom and setting up recording equipment and such like. It’s really rather odd, but I know this, Cash should have read ‘The Gruffalo’, it would have been amazing.

I found the suite, so you can listen to that if you like, the Cash bit isn’t included though, which is a shame:

Found it on Youtube:

I’ll get around to the others another time, this just struck me as rather odd.
