At San Quentin comments
Comments for the album At San Quentin by Johnny Cash:
Almost as good as Folsom Prison. Don't overlook - it covers new territory, and is just as connected.
"At San Quentin" is one of the all-time essential live albums. Johnny Cash had released the live album "At Folsom Prison" just a year before but "At San Quentin" is its equal in every way (well, except for the fact that this album lacks the song "Cocaine Blues").
The defining moment comes on the song "San Quentin." The crowd of convicts simply EXPLODES with adoration for Cash and vitriol for the prison as they hang on to every word of the song:
"San Quentin, may you rot and burn in hell!
May your walls fall and may I live to tell!
May all the world forget you ever stood.
And may all the world regret you did no good."
The response is so thunderous that Cash plays the song a second time immediately thereafter. Here you have one of the biggest stars in the world speaking directly to the hearts of some of the "lowest" men in the world and the connection is electric.
Add to that the fact that you have Cash favorites "I Walk the Line" and "Folsom Prison Blues," plus the premiere of two great new songs: the Bob Dylan/Johnny Cash penned "Wanted Man" and Shel Silverstein's hilarious "A Boy Named Sue." And of course, if you pick up an extended CD re-release of the album, it has even more classics than the 10 issued on the original release.
Cash always amazes me with his ability to mix humor, vulgarity and spirituality. His mastery of all three are what made the prisoners love him, and why this album will always be one of my favorites.
