#3: May 1968: Johnny Cash / The Odd Couple / Gilberto Gil / High School

Join us in the clink to discuss At Folsom Prison, the blistering live album that birthed the popular image of Johnny Cash as the outlaw cowboy (3:46). Then, try not to burn the meatloaf as we discuss The Odd Couple (19:13), including a lengthy appreciation of Walter Matthau’s vast spectrum of curmudgeonliness, and Frederick Wiseman’s direct-cinema cultural artefact High School (47:24). Plus, we go international with a seminal tropicalia album from Brazilian superstar Gilberto Gil (33:53). We’d love to hear your feedback — hit us up on Twitter @goodyearshow.
