"Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison is an account of that day, what led to it, and what came after. Michael Streissguth places the album and the concert in the larger context of Cash's artistic development, the era's popular music, and California's prison system, uncovering new angles and exploding a few myths along the way. Informed by the author's unprecedented access to Folsom Prison and Columbia Records' archives, and fully illustrated with over 100 photos - many never before published - by legendary photographer Jim Marshall, Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison shows how Johnny Cash forever became a champion of the down-trodden, as well as one of the most enduring forces of American music."--BOOK JACKET.
