Great Gospel perfomances you want see any where else.

"This documentary hosted by Dan Rather looks into John's reason for singing in the first place and how he was able to use his music to spread God's word. There are interviews to be sure, Marshal Grant, John Carter Cash, and more, but most importantly they let John's music play a big part of this DVD. Far too many of these retrospective, documenteries, interrupt the musical performances with interviews, not this one. The performances stand on their own, with few exceptions. The perfomances start with an old black and white performance that can be found on other DVD's, but that's it, later perfomances have him and with June performing several songs from the Billy Graham crusades. Jewels, everyone of them. It also has photos of John at June's funeral and ends with a still photo from John's own funeral. This is THE BEST documentary I've seen on John (it doesn't cover all aspects of his life, just concentrates on his gospel music and his relationship with God). Don't let the use of the term "documentary" scare you from this DVD, the concert performances are great and the songs (for the most part) are uninterrupted. You may never see these performances anywhere else, this is worth owning."
The essence of Johnny Cash

"Johnny Cash's soul is truly beautiful, and it shines throughout this DVD of Gospel songs and the documentary by Dan Rather. I own MANY Cash DVD's and I love many of them; however, this DVD has touched me beyond words."
