I'm A Fishing Man DVD
This DVD release makes available previously unseen performances by Johnny Horton.
Finally we see why Johnny Horton was, as his contemporaries said, a natural television performer. Amiable, good-looking, and breezily confident, he was ideal for what was then the new medium of television.
I'm A Fishin' Man collects most of the known filmed performances of Johnny Horton from the very early in his career until just a few weeks before he was killed. There are 25 filmed performances, plus three bonus audio performances spanning the years from 1953 until 1960.
He not only sings his biggest hits, North To Alaska, Johnny Reb, Sal's Got A Sugar Lip, Sink The Bismarck and The Battle Of New Orleans, but he also performs songs that won't be as familiar to collectors, like Electrified Donkey, Be Honest With Me and I'm A Fishing Man.
Even though there are no published interviews with Johnny Horton, on this DVD he talks with the hosts of the Ozark Jubilee show Red Foley, Bobby Lord and Eddy Arnold.
