Release info:

This set (recorded at 9.40 in the morning!) of course had to include his 1955 hit, Folsom Prison Blues (the one where he shoots a man in Reno "just to watch him die"). You can imagine the reception. 

Cash was determined to stand face to face with the gravity of the situation (he'd never served time, incidentally, but had seen the inside of jail cell). He played songs that dwell on darkness (Dark As A Dungeon) and the pathos of a life spent behind bars (Green Green Grass Of Home).

 He now spoke to a generation who now wanted more than just pop, seeing him as a true people's champion. These raw, honest performances made him a legend.
