Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On January 13, 1968, Johnny Cash took the stage at Folsom Prison in Folsom, California. The concert and the live album, Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison, propelled him to worldwide superstardom with definitive versions of "I Still Miss Someone," "The Long Black Veil," and, of course, "Folsom Prison Blues." He reached new audiences, ignited tremendous growth in the country music industry, and connected with fans in a way no other artist has before or since.Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison is a riveting account of that day, what led to it, and what came after, for Johnny Cash and for America. Michael Streissguth skillfully places the album and the concert in the larger context of Cash's artistic development, popular music of the era, and the California prison system, uncovering new angles and exploding a few myths along the way. Scrupulously researched, rich with the author's unprecedented access to Folsom Prison and Columbia Records' archives, illustrated with 100 photos (many never before published), Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison shows how Johnny Cash forever became a champion of the downtrodden, as well as one of the more enduring forces of American music.
