Our Review

"The culture of a thousand years is shattered with the clanging of the cell door behind you," wrote Johnny Cash about prison life, which may explain why he spent so much of his time reaching out to convicts, entertaining inmates with dark and empathic material. ("We bring them a ray of sunshine in their dungeon," is how The Man in Black put it.) Cash played Folsom Prison frequently, insisting prison crowds were the best to play for and he's right. They're energetic, eager to feel the warmth and meaning and empathy that Johnny Cash delivers on song after song on this outlaw country classic.

Customer Reviews

Possibly The Best Live Album Ever Made (5 stars) Worth buying just for the opening cut, FOLSOM PRISON BLUES. Johnny Cash achieved mythic status with 'Folsom' here, as opposed to the Sun Records version. The song, the singer, and this band coupled with an audience of hard-timers is totallly intoxicating. For those who know this album - the the phone can be heard ringing, the lines that the inmates cheer, the intro, the pig call - it is truly thrilling. Johnny Cash did something that few sin Cash In Charge (5 stars) For me, personally, the overall country/country-western genres always left me indifferent, to say the least. But I could always listen to Johnny Cash, and "Johnny Cash At Folsom Prison" is the gravel-voiced troubador being earthy, funny, and incisive as only he can. While I can't say I would have wanted to have been in the general audience for this performance, it's obvious Johnny was giving his best to a crowd that he felt deserve Cash's finest (5 stars) HEY NIRVANA FANS! WANT TO HEAR A REAL UNPLUGGED?!? Considering his prison background, his cocaine abuse, his greatness in the studio (including who he wrote songs for), and the fact he went back to jail to record it (when did "Unplugged" do that?) this is the classic for anyone who wants to hear a TRUE live album. The only paying customers are paying time. Guards interrupt. They're calling for convicts to meet family. Cash mo

Biography

Born: February 26, 1932 in Kingsland, AR Genre: Country Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s Johnny Cash was one of the most imposing and influential figures in post-World War II country music. With his deep, resonant baritone and spare percussive guitar, he had a basic, distinctive sound. Cash didn't sound like Nashville, nor did he sound like honky tonk or rock & roll. He created his own subgenre, falling halfway between the blunt emotional honesty of folk, the rebelliousness of rock & roll, and the world-weariness of country. Cash's career coincided with the birth of rock &...
