At Folsom Prison (Live). At Folsom Prison (Live) Tracklist. 1. Folsom Prison Blues (Live) Lyrics. 2. Dark as the Dungeon Lyrics. On January 13, 1968, after two days of rehearsals in a Sacramento motel, Cash and June Carter, along with the Statler Brothers, Carl Perkins and the Tennessee Three, entered Folsom State Prison in Folsom, California, to perform one of the greatest live recordings in the popular music canon: the album was released in May of that year, becoming a hit in the United. States, reaching number one on the country charts and the top 15 of the national album chart. At Folsom Prison (Live) Q&A.

However, Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison album is a unique oddity. Sure, artists release live albums, but how many artists play in prisons, let alone one of the toughest prisons in the country at the time" Years ago, Johnny Cash saw a documentary on the prison and the documentary moved him and caused to be an advocate of prison reform. Folsom Prison is the first of a few live releases at prisons, and one can only imagine what it must have been like for a prisoner to see Johnny Cash, a man with such empathy towards prisoners, performing live just for them

Folsom Prison looms large in Johnny Cash's legacy, providing the setting for perhaps his definitive song and the location for his definitive album, At Folsom Prison. The ideal blend of mythmaking and gritty reality, At Folsom Prison is the moment when Cash turned into the towering Man in Black, a haunted troubadour singing songs of crime, conflicted conscience, and jail.

Folsom Prison looms large in Johnny Cash's legacy, providing the setting for perhaps his definitive song and the location for his definitive album, At Folsom Prison.

Folsom Prison Blues' is a song by Johnny Cash, written in 1953 and first recorded in 1955. It was later included on the Johnny Cash's debut studio album 'With His Hot and Blue Guitar,' released in 1957. Story behind the song. Johnny Cash got an inspiration for this song after seeing the 1951 movie Inside the Walls of Folsom Prison, while he was serving in the US Air Force in West Germany at Landsberg, Bavaria, which is the location of a famous prison too. Cash explained that he wrote the line "But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die", while he was thinking up the worst reason a person could have for killing another person.

Johnny Cash had been breaking new ground for a decade when At Folsom Prison suddenly made the world at large take notice. The interaction of a volatile prison population starved for entertainment and a desperately on-form Johnny Cash was electrifying. His somber machismo finally found a home. The 09:40 concert is the one put on the album most of us are familiar with. During the 12:40 concert you can tell right out that Johnny Cash had just given a previous concert as his voice is tired and he made more slip-ups-but still a good listen I think. The show at Folsom in 1968 was a long one and I always thought that the the songs that were not on the album were as worthy of being heard as the ones that were.

In 1968, The Man in Black played his prison songs ( Folsom Prison Blues, I Got Stripes, 25 Minutes to Go ) and tales of drug-fueled murder ( Cocaine Blues ) to a hall of hardy convicts-and the genre was born. But it wasn’t merely context that makes this album iconic. Backed by the Tennessee Three, Cash’s booming performance has real fire, and he brings the house down on standards like I Still Miss Someone, Orange Blossom Special, and Jackson. At Folsom Prison (Live) Johnny Cash.
