Halfway through the Best of the Johnny Cash TV Show DVD set... I remember watching the show in '69-71. There are two performances that are just DEVASTATING -- his debut of "Man in Black" (in front of a collegiate audience) and his cover of Kristofferson's "Sunday Morning Coming Down," which was released as a single and and won awards.
It's also fun to see him sing with Joni and Satchmo, and the anecdote about June seeing Linda Ronstadt not wearing panties in dress rehearsal is a keeper.

His cover of if you could read my mind is about as soul crushing as you can get. The sound of a man heartbroken and ready to die
