Q - 4/00, p.106
4 stars out of 5 - "...represents Cash at the peak of his powers, bringing a highly combustible mixture of joy and pain to 2000 excitable inmates....Any more real and full body armor would have had to be supplied."

CMJ - 11/1/99, pp.24-5
"...finally receiving a proper...reissue....Restored is Cash's salty stage-banter in all of its uncensored glory, alongside every one of the crowd's raucous, foot-stomping, hollering responses....repeatedly delivers the kind of goosebumps that few records can."
Dirty Linen - p.46
"Backed by the Tennessee Three, rockabilly guitarist Carl Perkins, and vocal group the Statler Brothers, the 'Man in Black' delivered a passionate mix of unsweetened folk balladry, honky tonk, blues and country gospel."
Dirty Linen - 2-3/00, pp.63,65

Paste (magazine) (p.60) - "Cash's performance of inmate Glen Sherley's 'Greystone Chapel' is the highlight....It's no exaggeration to say that JOHNNY CASH AT FOLSOM PRISON is his masterwork."
Clash (magazine) (p.97) - "AT FOLSOM PRISON is a record that has long been considered one of the most influential albums of the '60s....The raw vibe of the performance is captured perfectly..."
Uncut (magazine) - p.66
"'Folsom Prison Blues' is the inevitable lead-off of this spirited live album, which freights a joyful vim at odds with its surroundings."

Product Description:

Additional personnel: The Statler Brothers.
Want to hear part of the reason why Johnny Cash is an icon, a singer respected and influential in country, folk, and rock & roll? THIS is it! In 1968--one of the most tumultuous years in American history since the Depression years--Cash recorded an album live in front of a (literally) captive (but wildly appreciative) audience, in Folsom Prison. With two guitars, bass, drums, and a small vocal group (including Cash's wife June Carter Cash and the Statler Brothers), Cash sings his hits and lesser-known songs ("Send a Picture of Mother") and some haunting country standards ("Dark as a Dungeon"), as well as songs about REAL outlaws ("Cocaine Blues") to a rapt audience that hangs on every word. That boom-chicka-boom sound is sharp as the first mean wind of winter, and Cash is in fine fettle (though his voice cracks from time to time). With its unique setting, this is as harrowing an album as any ever recorded.
