Product Description & Reviews

No less than nine unreleased tracks highlight this first-ever release of Johnny's COMPLETE 1969 concert at San Quentin, which also includes unpublished photos of the show, a personal reflection from Johnny and Marty Stuart's new notes featuring an interview with ex-San Quentin inmate Merle Haggard! This was the only Cash album to reach #1 on the charts, partly due to the surprise hit A Boy Named Sue but more due to the way Johnny connects with the audience. A classic! While Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison, the 1968 album that made Cash a household word, spent only two weeks at No. 1, this 1969 follow-up topped the charts for 20 weeks. As with Folsom, the San Quentin LP had to be edited due to space limitations. Now, 31 years after the fact, the show can at last be heard in true perspective. All the original performances hold up, including the album's hit single: Shel Silverstein's "A Boy Named Sue," presented unbleeped for the first time. Equally impressive are the eight restored tracks and unexpurgated between-song patter. Cash's opening renditions of "Big River" and "I Still Miss Someone" are bracing. So are four closing songs teaming Cash with his complete performing troupe (the Carter Family, Carl Perkins, and the Statler Brothers). Their gospel performances ("He Turned the Water into Wine," "The Old Account," and an early version of "Daddy Sang Bass") are electrifying, as is a concluding medley featuring everyone. Cash is presented here at his roaring, primal best. --Rich Kienzle
