In addition to that, Cash was nearing the peak of his popularity - his 1968 live album, At Folsom Prison, was a smash success - but he was nearly at his wildest in his personal life, which surely spilled over into his performance. All of this sets the stage for Johnny Cash at San Quentin, a nominal sequel to At Folsom Prison that surpasses its predecessor and captures Cash at his rawest and wildest. Part of this is due to how he feeds off of his captive audience, playing to the prisoners and seeming like one of them, but it's also due to the shifting dynamic within the band
The prison had a history of welcoming the new year with a seven-hour entertainment extravaganza on January 1. That year, Cash stole the show. Fellow country-music star Merle Haggard, serving time at San Quentin for petty crimes, said in his autobiography that the enthusiasm for Cash overwhelmed the other acts, including women dancing and a seventeen- piece jazz band. Even after the success of the Folsom and San Quentin albums, he continued to play for inmates. These events included a show at Soledad State Prison in 1980, where his performance was likely an enhancement to the successful immersive arts and music programs for inmates that was in full force at the time. Multiple Folsom Concerts.
Johnny Cash went to Folsom and San Quentin prisons in the late 60's and recorded two of the best country albums ever recorded. You get the sense that Cash truly felt compassion for the prisoners and did his very best in this performance. This album is not just for country fans but would probably enjoyed by some rock and roll fans as well.
Johnny Cash Wanted Man Lyrics was co-written by Bob Dylan and recorded live at San Quentin State Prison in 1969. For a long time I originally thought Johnny had written these Wanted Man Lyrics on his own but discovered that Bob Dylan actually wrote the song with Johnny. However, what really makes songs like "Wanted Man" so amazing, is the between song chat with Johnny and the prisoners. Look at any critic's list of "Essential" country music and both will be on it.
