The Lure of the Grand Canyon is a classical music album by Andre Kostelanetz and his Orchestra, featuring a guest spoken-word appearance by country singer Johnny Cash. It was released in 1961 (see 1961 in music) by Columbia Records. The album consists primarily of a recording of Ferde Grofé's Grand Canyon Suite, conducted by Andre Kostelanetz, and includes authentic sounds recorded in the Grand Canyon itself. A spoken commentary by Cash makes up the 13-minute-long sixth and last track, preceded by the five movements of the suite, and describes a day spent visiting the famous canyon.
