I’m not a country fan, but this is easily one of the best live albums I’ve ever heard. Really on point review.

got this at a thrift store for 3 dollars

I’ve listened to Johnny Cash extensively, so that, of course, includes this.

Many of my friends are the people who say that “all country music is bad because all songs are about stupid shit like tractors and beer.” Frankly, I agree. I think that country has become more of a mix of rock and pop, than actually taking from its roots.

However, whenever they say something like that, I can’t help but contradict them and say something along the lines of “not all country.”

For me, one of the biggest examples is “Green, Green Grass of Home.” If you’re familiar with the song, you know why. It’s from this album, and I never heard it mentioned, so I thought I would. It’s about a newly-released man who finally has a chance to go home. When he gets there, he’s reminded of all the good memories from before his stay in prison.

The thing is… he was only dreaming. All of it was a trick of the brain, just a ruse. He’s still in prison, still in a damned cell. The worst part is that he’s awoken on the day of his execution. He won’t touch the green grass of home. He’ll be under it.

So when you say “All country is stupid,” I strongly disagree with you.

Bitchthony nigtano

Alex F says:

Worth recognizing is the live version of The Legend of John Henry’s Hammer, only on the CD version, which is a massive 7-minute-long folk tale and an amazing performance.

El Rico jug unto me gustatory el disco.

Joshua Reed says:

Donny hathaway – Live

I'm a fucking corn says:

I prefer at San Quentin, but at Folsom is still great

Mike Glock says:

i love all Johnny Cash songs. every single one.

Reece Decker says:

Dark as a dungeon off of “At Folsom Prison” is probably one of the most powerful songs that Johnny Cash has ever performed. I get goosebumps every time he crescendo’s toward the chorus.

A Random Person says:

I Like Old Country But Modern Country Like Luke Bryan Not So Much

MurphJr says:

Laid in the hot joint takin’ the pill,
in walked a sheriff from Jericho Hill.
He said, ‘Willy Lee your name is not Jack Brown!’
‘You’re the dirty hack that shot your woman down!’

ProsecutorGodot says:

Hi, I’m Johnny Cash 😀

thenoodleshop says:

Just purchased this vinyl for £3.50 online, best £3.50 I’ve ever spent.

B-Retro Gamer says:

You serve everything in tin cups?

Jack Valentine says:

Do a Hendrix review

my_fucking_balls_itch lel says:

This album was a life changer. Green green grass of home is one of the best songs of all time, much like many of the songs here.

Baby Irene says:

Thanks for reminding me what a great record this is.

Christopher Zalayes says:

Also do one on David Allan Coe’s Greatest Hits

Jimbo Green says:

“DIRTY OLD EGGSUCKIN’ GOD”

Harry S. Truman says:

God, I just, fucking hate this guy.

LegoSolgeFilms says:

will you review the American album he made?

Dom510 says:

and when i said i love him i meant i love what he stands for. I’m a guy and i didn’t want that to sound weird but i love his music

MattieCooper says:

I love this Album! Review cocaine next!

Spencer James says:

I point At Folsom Prison out to anyone who says that hip-hop glorifies crime. I know tons of country fans who love Cash but think rap is morally bankrupt. We’ve always had more gritty and dark music, especially in outlaw country. Love this album.

sandcross69 says:

I remember when this was first uploaded and melon finally done a country record specifically Johnny Cash I was happy because I am a country fan but Anthony if you’re listening please do these two reviews John Mayer or and Grateful Dead

Who - What When - Where am I ? says:

HOLY Shaving Cream — just like really bad novice graffiti — the internet must be like the ‘marks – a lot’ permanent marker that won’t run out of ink –you must’ve gotten punched in the face by complete strangers most of your life………..That’s talent……….well you do what most talent-less dolts do ……Talk about it………

Lucifer The Demon Bandicoot says:

I don’t really like country, but even I have to admit this album’s fucking awesome.

Sheerkat7 says:

He did do time for accidentally setting a forest fire. This is truly one of the best live albums ever, I agree. He was an American original – no one like him before or since. His voice was unique with a bass vibrato. Singing with so much emotion, he draws you into the music. I love him, still listen to him. And I hate modern country music.

John Motherfuckin' Coltrane says:

Whats that brown album in the background?

Robert Brumley says:

This album was even greater when it first came out in 1968. Really top at it’s time. Only competition he had at that time was Creedence Clearwater Revival With the album Green River.

Baron Von Lichtenstein says:

My father bought it for me when I was like 7. Apparently he didnt listen to it first.

Joey6327 says:

Been listening to this album a lot. Surprised to see Plantano do a review on it. Good one.

john gleason says:

I just listened to the album for the first time. You can officially call me a country fan.
