Review of KeepitCASH - 11th March 2007 © Paul Abraham
“Hello, I’m Johnny Cash” arguably the most iconic opening line, in live music history, sent a tingle down the spine of the New Roscoe audience, as KeepItCa$h visited the venue for the first time. Every track was delivered with authority, and at times, a quite eerie quality, when the line “But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die” the blood in your veins froze, as the great mans drawl echoed around the room. All the classic tracks were covered in a breath-taking performance, which the champion of the underdog, the poor and the down-trodden, was no doubt looking down and giving a nod of approval. The San Quentin prison sentence called work, was a million miles away from your mind, as the band gave you a feel-good factor like no other. This was a golden performance from the man in black.
