At Folsom Prison (Bonus Tracks)
by Johnny Cash
Released: Jan 1968
Forty years after Johnny Cash broke an unwritten taboo and recorded in front of inmates at Folsom Prison, his accomplishment still stands alone in pop culture. Hippies and hicks alike came to Cash to revel in the somber velvet of his singing, his immersion in the American songbook, his championing of a still-despised prison population. On this 40th anniversary edition, we get the two shows in full for the first time, uncensored and including warm-up performances by the Statler Brothers and Carl Perkins, a comic poem by the irrepressible June Carter Cash and much more.
