"At San Quentin" is being re-released on black vinyl (Columbia – 180g vinyl – Legacy Quality Pressing).
Although Johnny Cash's album "At Folsom Prison" might be more popular, artistically speaking "At San Quentin" is the better album. Johnny Cash seems wilder – some may say that is due to the loss of guitarist Luther Perkins – but at the same time he seems more satisfied and in harmony with the audience. He jokes about his drug addiction, rebels against the British television crew that wants to tape the show, and it seems as if he would really like to kill the bastard that called him Sue!

this live show has something to it.
Never been a big fan of listening to live shows at home.
But some specific act managed to capture a rare moment, that is way more than an ordinary gig.
I could mention AIC's unplugged together with this Cash live album.
Had this on an original press, this new version is great for my listening intentions. as It sounds much better then my original press.
