In 1967 Baron Wolman was a young freelance photojournalist living in San Francisco when he helped start Rolling Stone magazine. In December of that year, he photographed Johnny Cash and June Carter performing at a small venue just south of the city called the Circle Star Theatre. One of his shots captured a moment when a dapper Johnny, seated alone backstage before the show, seemed completely lost in thought. “Watching Johnny before he went on,” recalls Baron, “I was concerned that he was not at all in the mood to perform.”

Lucky Brand Announces Expanded Collaboration With Johnny Cash For March 2014 To Celebrate Lost Album Out Among The Stars
Los Angeles, CA (March 24, 2014) – Lucky Brand announced today that they are expanding their ongoing partnership with original American icon, Johnny Cash -- the “Man in Black” -- in honor of the March 25 release of a lost Johnny Cash album, Out Among The Stars (Columbia/Legacy).
The new Johnny Cash album, Out Among the Stars, is different. It’s an actual lost LP by the Man in Black -- an entire disc that was supposed to come out back in the mid-1980s but was shelved by Cash’s record company before it could be completed.
But now Cash’s son, John Carter Cash, has rescued them from obscurity, polished them up, and put them back together -- just as he says his father and mother, June Carter Cash, would have wanted.
