On Janu, Johnny Cash walked into California’s Folsom State Prison and made popular music history. The choicest cuts from the two shows he recorded that day merged to become At Folsom Prison, a multimillion-selling album produced by Bob Johnston that unveiled a startling portrait of American prison life and energized Cash’s career. The most popular album of Cash’s career to that point, it soared to Estimated Reading Time: 2 mins.

Johnny Cash was a prolific songwriter and performer. He released well over one hundred singles in his lifetime, fourteen of which went to number one on the country charts (Dauphin). One of the most notable is “Folsom Prison Blues,” first released on his album With His Hot and Blue Guitar, reaching number 4 on the charts, then again on his live album Johnny Cash Live at Folsom Prison.

Folsom Prison looms large in Johnny Cash's legacy, providing the setting for perhaps his definitive song and the location for his definitive album, At Folsom Prison. The ideal blend of mythmaking and gritty reality, At Folsom Prison is the moment when Cash turned into the towering Man in Black, a haunted troubadour singing songs of crime, conflicted conscience, and jail.
