Trending Now

Classic live album ‘Johnny Cash At San Quentin’ is being re-released by Columbia/Legacy in a new package early next year. The package will include 13 previously unreleased tracks, a highlight of which will be a duet with June Carter Cash on “Jackson”, as well as several other songs from the Carter Family.

On June 4, 1969, Johnny Cash notoriously performed for the inmates of San Quentin prison. The concert has never been available in its entirety, the original record featuring only 10 songs from the gig.

The CD/DVD set also includes a documentary, ‘Johnny Cash in San Quentin’, originally produced for Granada TV in Britain. This comprised interviews with inmates and wardens who were at San Quentin for the historic performance.
