This is undoubtedly one of my own very favourite songs penned by 'The Man In Black', Johnny Cash. I recorded it at my 1997 'infamous' speed-o-matic session (62 tracks laid down in just one month on a simple 6-track Vestax MR-66 cassette recorder!) and I frankly admit I could've done a more versatile job out of it, but it just happened to be a 'quickie', that suddenly sprung to mind, and it only took about 20 minutes to record it, from start to finish, using a Jackson HM electric all the way through!


"I Still Miss Someone" is the title of a song written and originally recorded by American country music legend Johnny Cash. He first recorded it in 1958 as the B-side to "Don't Take Your Guns To Town". Cash wrote "I Still Miss Someone" with his eldest brother, Roy. Cash included the song on his 1963 album, Ring Of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash. Most of Cash's live recordings after the 1960s included "I Still Miss Someone."
Cash appeared in Eat the Document, which documented Bob Dylan's 1966 world tour, performing "I Still Miss Someone" with Dylan backstage. Cash later recorded the song as a duet with Dylan during sessions for Dylan's album Nashville Skyline in 1969; however, this duet has never been officially released.
Four different artists have charted versions of "I Still Miss Someone" on the Billboard charts. Flatt & Scruggs released a version on their album The Versatile Flatt & Scruggs, peaking at #45 in 1965. In 1981, Don King took a version to #38, on his Epic Records album Whirlwind. Emmylou Harris sent her version to #51, releasing it as the third and final single from her 1989 album Bluebird. In 2004, Martina McBride recorded the song on her 2005 album Timeless as a duet with Dolly Parton. This rendition went to #50 in 2006. Stevie Nicks also covered the song on her 1989 album The Other Side of the Mirror.
Jimmy Buffett performed the song as a dedication to Cash at the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn, Washington on September 16, 2003, four days after Cash's death. Before playing it, Buffett said it was his favorite Johnny Cash song. It's the only time Buffett ever played the song, and the performance was recorded and released on the live album Live in Auburn, WA.
Personally I was totally floored when I first heard Linda Ronstadt & The Stone Ponys version of it on a Capitol album I found at a junkyard sale, in fact the first label Miss Ronstadt was signed to and taken from one of three albums she recorded as vocalist in the Country Rock trio, The Stone Ponys, (Bobby Kimmel and Kenny Edwards was the two other members of the group) for Capitol during a 15-month period between 1967 -- 68.

This video is dedicated in Loving Memory to my late fiancé, Jennifer Irene Gonzalez, who passed away from cancer on October 4th, 2010. The most beautiful, wonderful and loveable person I have EVER known! Her memory will ALWAYS linger on!!
