Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (12/11/03, p.116) - Ranked #88 in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time" - "...Essential Cash....The 2,000 inmates roar their approval..."

Spin (p.86) - "[A] legendary 1968 concert, activist entertainment on a par with Bob Dylan and Public Enemy."

Entertainment Weekly (9/26/03, p.34) - "...You get the sense that Cash could just as easily be in the audience as on stage at this raucous show, and the inmates know it..."

Q (4/00, p.106) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...represents Cash at the peak of his powers, bringing a highly combustible mixture of joy and pain to 2000 excitable inmates....Any more real and full body armor would have had to be supplied."

Uncut (3/00, p.74) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...It's an effortless and powerful performance....Touching..."

CMJ (11/1/99, pp.24-5) - "...finally receiving a proper...reissue....Restored is Cash's salty stage-banter in all of its uncensored glory, alongside every one of the crowd's raucous, foot-stomping, hollering responses....repeatedly delivers the kind of goosebumps that few records can."

Dirty Linen (p.46) - "Backed by the Tennessee Three, rockabilly guitarist Carl Perkins, and vocal group the Statler Brothers, the 'Man in Black' delivered a passionate mix of unsweetened folk balladry, honky tonk, blues and country gospel."

Dirty Linen (2-3/00, pp.63,65) - "...an impressive performance document that gives a fuller sense of Cash's stage persona and his relationship with the audience....The song order has been corrected to the original performance....[with] 3 previously unreleased songs..."

Q (Magazine) (p.123) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t chimed perfectly with the rebellious spirit of the times, becoming a turning point for country music..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.123) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Savour this for the original show in all its primal glory."

Paste (magazine) (p.60) - "Cash's performance of inmate Glen Sherley's 'Greystone Chapel' is the highlight....It's no exaggeration to say that JOHNNY CASH AT FOLSOM PRISON is his masterwork."

Clash (magazine) (p.97) - "AT FOLSOM PRISON is a record that has long been considered one of the most influential albums of the '60s....The raw vibe of the performance is captured perfectly..."

Uncut (magazine) (p.66) - "'Folsom Prison Blues' is the inevitable lead-off of this spirited live album, which freights a joyful vim at odds with its surroundings."
