It may just be a typo, but make sure you have the normal quotes: ' rather than backquotes: ` in your command.  Backquotes have a different meaning to the shell and may confuse things.  For example, 'read' is a shell command that waits for input, and backquotes will try to execute it, so your command will hang waiting for input... which is what you are experiencing, yes?
