Even if you do not like live albums, this is still an amazing album. I believe this is the greatest live album ever recorded. Johnny Cash's interaction to the prisoners is great and he gives such a raw performance. Even if the type of music being played isn't your thing it should still be listened to for the atmosphere alone.

It's an enjoyable album, but sounds a little tame these days. If it was recorded in an arena would it be held in such acclaim or does the fact that it's a prison give it a reputation that makes it a little more notorious than it actually is. It's a good album, but nothing more than a competent live recording.

Absolutely amazing album - that this man had the guts to go there and perform says a lot about him. A classic!

Pretty much everything a live album should be. The crowd and the banter with the audience makes the album. Cocaine Blues and Flushed From the Toilet of Your Heart are particularly inspired performances.

This is a live performance that makes you feel like you are actually in Folsom Prison when Johnny Cash was performing. Johnny Cash's interaction with the inmates is caught in this recording, as well as an announcement calling a inmate and doors closing it has the real feel and puts you back in time as if your there. This album is one of the best live recordings ever because Johnny Cash's jokes and interactions with inmates and his involving the audience is so evident that he and the inmates are having a great time.
