Eddy Arnold Johnny Cash Glen Sherley Autograph Signed "Portrait Of My Woman" LP Record Album
The album "Portrait Of My Woman" signed on the front cover by Eddy Arnold, and on the back cover by Johnny Cash (adding "Love from") and Glen Sherley over reproduced letters each had written. Many may not know of Glen Sherley, but he has a connection to both Johnny Cash and Eddy Arnold. Glen was in Folsom Prison at the time Johnny recorded his Live At Folsom Prison album. The night before he recorded the album there, the prison Chaplain, who knew Johnny, gave him a tape of a song Glen Sherley had written called Greystone Chapel. Johnny liked it so much that he stayed up all that night learning the song. The next day when he was performing at Folsom Prison, he pointed to Glen who was sitting in the front row and said, "Glen Sherley, here is your song", and sang it. Glen could barely believe that Johnny Cash was singing his song. It's on the album "Live At Folsom Prison". He wrote more songs, and one of them was "Portrait Of My Woman" which Eddy Arnold recorded and is the title song to this album. He eventually recorded an album of his own songs while he was in prison. He was paroled a couple years later, and Johnny Cash was at the gate to meet him. He tried to make a go of it as a country performer for awhile, but had trouble handling any fame that was coming his way. So he eventually pretty much stayed out of the public eye his last few years, but ended up fatally shooting himself in 1978.This is from the estate of Dan (Oberholtz) Diamond, a prominent Kansas City area DJ for decades. Besides his many years as a DJ and interviewing most of the top musical acts of his time, Dan was also known for his vast personal record collection.
