While waiting for a plane in early 1955, Johnny Cash ducked into a theater and became fascinated by the movie he saw, “In Side The Walls Of A Prison Of Folsom Prison”. On the plane, he wrote he turned that experience into “Folsom Prison Blues” which Johnny recorded on July 29, 1955. Released in 1956, the single went to No. 4 on the Billboard Country Charts. A 1968 version, recorded live at Folsom rose to No. 1

On Jan. 1, 1959, Instead of spending New Year’s Day Partying or watching football, Johnny cash put on a landmark concert for the inmates of San Quentin prison in California. The show had an especially profound effect on one inmate in particular. A young Merle Haggard, serving time for burglary and attempted escape, was so inspired that he vowed to become a songwriter and singer after completing his prison term. Years later, when Merle appeared on Johnny’s network TV show, he revealed the story for the first time – and took The Man In Black by surprise. “That caught me completely flat-footed,” Johnny later recalled. In 1969, Johnny Returned to San Quentin for another concert and recorded the Landmark album “Johnny Cash At San Quentin” which featured the rollicking novelty number “The Boy Named Sue.” That song became Johnny’s biggest singles, spending five weeks at No. 1, and “Johnny Cash At San Quentin” captured the 1969 CMA Awards for Album of the Year.     


Johnny Cash's legendary 1969 concert at San Quentin State Prison in San Quentin, Calif. will be preserved unedited and in its entirety for the first time on CD, when Columbia/Legacy releases Johnny Cash at San Quentin (The Complete 1969 Concert) on July 4. 

Johnny Cash at San Quentin was originally released in 1969 but was missing nine tracks originally played during the Feb. 24, 1969 concert. Those include "Big River," "I Still Miss Someone," "I Don't Know Where I'm Bound," "Ring of Fire," "Folsom Prison Blues," "He Turned the Water Into Wine," "Daddy Sang Bass," "The Old Account," and a closing medley of "Folsom Prison Blues," "I Walk the Line," "Ring of Fire," and "The Rebel" (featuring the Carter Family, the Statler Brothers, and Carl Perkins). As with the previous release, The Complete 1969 Concert includes back-to-back versions of "San Quentin" -- written especially for the performance -- per the request of the prisoners in attendance. 

Country legend Merle Haggard, who was a serving time at San Quentin in 1969 for breaking and entering and attended the show, is interviewed by country star Marty Stuart for the liner notes to the album. Besides the music, a famous rock and roll image came out of the 1969 San Quentin show as well. Photographer Jim Marshall's timeless photo of Cash flipping a bird to what looks like the camera lens (but in actuality was to all the photographers and cameramen at the front of the stage who refused to move upon Cash's request) was taken at the show. 

Here is the track listing to Johnny Cash at San Quentin (The Complete 1969 Concert): 

1. "Big River"
2. "I Still Miss Someone"
3. "Wreck of the Old 97"
4. "I Walk the Line"
5. "Darlin' Companion"
6. "I Don't Know Where I'm Bound"

This Thing Called Love         

Sometimes when I am singing I look into the blue light and I see dusty roads and green lush meadows. I put myself into another time and place, I sing a song that has long ago become second nature to me and I think about tomorrow. I talk to you from my heart in between these songs and I know that you understand that I am proud of you have listened. Your enthusiasm overwhelms me, I am embarrassed. But I try not to let you know, then I sing a gospel and I reach up and grab a handful, and start feeling the power of love. The chill goes down my spine, and my hands get hot from emotion and I suppose my eyes dilate. For my excitement becomes more and more intense, I shout words. And there’s love in every word I shout, because the love from him is going through me to you. I look down at you and there you are, sweet people reaching up for me. Oh how I wish I could tell you the power of the love goes through me to you, and comes back to me from you. My heart is bursting, I and weeping for my joy inside. I want to reach down and hold all of you touch you. But anything I could do wouldn’t really explain how wonderful I feel , so I step back and I smile at you and take a bow. It’s beyond me. It’s above me, It’s a gift of God, ( This Thing Called Love )   Johnny Cash

Here I Am Back Again By Johnny Cash

Like a favorite old shoe that you pulled off and threw in the trash then found your new hurt your feet. Wore them new ones all you could then shined the old ones up real good, felt as natural as an old familiar street. Like a warming April wind here I am back again. Like a letter that you guessed at and missed the right address it comes back at you like a jumping bean, like a present that you want, like a birthday that you don’t like that judgment day of April fifteen. Like a temptation to sin, here I am back again. Like an old dog on the prowl late at night you hear him howl to remind you that he isn’t far away, like a Capistrano bird, ain’t nobody ever heard of em not returning on return day. Like your prodigal Kissin Kin here I am back again  Johnny Cash

The Man In Black 

There was a chill in the air this morning and the leaves on the buckeye tree are putting on new colors and I feel a change in me. It would be surly be wrong to fight it. For change is nature’s way and I expect to be different tomorrow than what I am today.

Well Hello! Here I am back again. And I have not enjoyed myself as much in three years as I did recording these new songs this week. It’s the first time since we began television that I’ve had time to spend two or three days in the studio. The result of that labor of love is this album of new songs. I have never been prouder of an album than I have this one. There are only three instruments on this album, The Tennessee Three, plus myself on rhythm guitar. There are two voices June Carter, and Rev. Billy Graham’s.

We hope this well be the first of many albums of new songs. We’re going to continue to work hard at making records and personal appearances, the two things I really love doing. I speak my mind in a lot of these songs. The lyrics express my feelings for a lot of things, and my feelings never change on some things, yet must change on others. As I recently told a reporter. Yes, I feel different now than I did a year ago about so-and-so. A year ago I had done a lot less thinking than I have now. Then the reporter said “But last yea, I thought you said” Yes, I did say that was last year.

But I changed my mind I changed a lot of things a lot of things change me. I’m always changing, always will be changing I’m growing, building, expanding. I am still being born, you haven’t seen the complete me yet. So the reporter asks, “Then there is nothing constants about you”? I answer “yes, I have many constants. I never quit, I never give up, I love people, I will always believe in God, I love music, I love to write, I love to perform, And I love my country. I believe in its youth and always have and always will. These are a few of my constants and there are others, however in most things, I’m changing. So “I said to the reporter, please don’t tell anybody how I feel about anything else unless I told you the last few day”. 

So here is an album that we’ve recorded in the last few days. The product of change. From the happy, hard working J.C.A.T. Johnny Cash after television.

Johnny Cash And Billy Graham 1985

I often feel like the man in the south who had a mule. He decided to put his mule in the Kentucky Derby. His Friends said. You don’t expect him to win, do you? No but look at the company he’ll be in. That’s the way I feel when I’m with people like you who are so talented Billy Graham

I have never known a greater man among men. Yet simply, his common touch, his child-like compassion for his fellow man, is the source of his greatness. As a friend of mine, he is one of those in the inner circle, those four or five friends you will only know in a lifetime of friends that come and go. He is true, He is faithful, He is what he appears to be; A dedicated vessel of Gods earthly endeavors among men.

Billy Graham is my friend, and I love him  Johnny Cash
