Johnny Cash at San Quentin

Sale price$40.00


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.

Cash sounds unhinged as he careers through his jailhouse ballads, old hits, and rockabilly-styled ravers, and even covers the Lovin' Spoonful ("Darlin' Companion"). He sounds like an outlaw and renegade here, which is what gives the album it's power and some would say the best Johnny Cash album ever cut.
