Johnny Cash and Louis Armstrong

posted by Jason Kottke   Nov 10, 2008

Johnny Cash and Louis Armstrong teamed up for a duet of Blue Yodel No. 9 in late 1970.

Let’s give it to ‘em in black and white.

Armstrong died less than a year after this recording. Here’s a lovely recording of What a Wonderful World from two years earlier. What a voice! (via siege)

Update: Armstrong used collage techniques to make covers for his music reels. (thx, sean)
