From Charade
For me, the music was good, but the interaction with the crowd and the dialogue throughout were what really made this enjoyable.

I'm not a fan of live albums, or of country music, but this album excels nevertheless. Cash is at his best here, with his best music. The running dialogue with the inmates adds to the performance.

Johnny Cash is one of my all time favorite musicians. He had such a talent of making musically simple songs but managing to add such emotion to these songs.

The only live album that I really enjoy listening, Johnny Cash here deliver such a raw performance that you can tell by his voice and the way he sings that he understands the people he is singing to.

From Anti
What a compelling live performance. I just revisited it for the first time in a while and damn, what perfect timing. The atmosphere of the original performance is near-perfectly captured. Whoever did the editing for the album did an incredible job because they balanced the audience's cheering so perfectly where it only enhances the listen and doesn't overwhelm the performance itself. And Johnny Cash is the freakin' man. I wish I could've seen this performance myself.

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.
