e. SHOW ME THE GREEN

unissued

YOU'RE MY BABY includes false starts and a complete take and was overdubbed at an unknown date.

MY TREASURE take 1 includes a false start and a complete take. There is also a second voice, possibly Marshall Grant, doing a short vocal harmony. There is a false start with Cash saying he sang the wrong lyrics.

MY TREASURE take 2 was overdubbed with added echo before release.

SHOW ME THE GREEN was mentioned in the liner notes of The Man In Black (BCD 15517). Apparently this title was written on an empty tape box found in the original Sun inventory but the tape itself has not be found.

Take 1 is an extended version with Luther Perkins playing a break after every verse instead of just after the second and fourth verse.

PTP-2045 is actually a repacking of JS-6097 and JS-6101, however not all issues of PTP-2045 use 'take 1'. Some releases of PTP-2045 carry labels showing "Hilltop Records" whilst others show a large letter 'P' covering the label. Only those issues using the 'P' label use take 1.

The difference between take 3 and take 4 is evident when listening to the last chorus and the line "You're gonna cry, cry, cry".

Take 4 includes two false starts on SB-103.

Take 1 of BIG RIVER is the version Cash referred to on his ABC-TV show aired January 6, 1971 as having another verse but was cut at the recording session because of its length. He did, however, sing the song in its entirety on that program. The omitted verse is:

Well now I pulled into Natchez the next day, down the river
And there wasn’t much there to make a rounder stay very long
And when I left it was raining so nobody saw me cry
Big River why’s she doing me that way.

Cash does, on occasion, sing this verse during his concerts.

BALLAD OF A TEENAGE QUEEN take 3 was overdubbed November 22, 1957.

GOODNIGHT IRENE was overdubbed April 21, 1964.

SB-103 includes a false start on take 2 of THE WAYS OF A WOMAN IN LOVE. A tape in John L Smith’s possession indicates studio conversation which is not included on SB-103.

The alternate version of WAYS OF A WOMAN IN LOVE has a couple of noticeable lyric changes. On the released version the line "friends come by to pick you up" replaced "the girls come by to pick you up" and the line "the guy who's got you in a spin" replaced "the guy who's got you all worked up".

WAYS OF A WOMAN IN LOVE take 4, FOOLS HALL OF FAME take 1 and THANKS A LOT take 4 were all overdubbed at an unknown date.

Martin Hawkins indicates only take 2 of FOOLS HALL OF FAME was issued. However, when comparing the songs it was found the Sun International releases were quite different from the master used on SB-103 - especially the wording on the last verse. With this in mind John L Smith showed the Sun International releases as take 1, but it could also have been take 3, since Hawkins has used take 2. Also, since this title was not released until after Sun International acquired the masters the guitar overdub may have been added by them. SB-103 also includes a false start.

SB-103 includes a number of false starts and studio antics on THANKS A LOT.
