Editorial Reviews

At San Quentin is the 31st overall album by Johnny Cash recorded live at San Quentin State Prison on February 24, 1969 and released on June 4 of that same year. The concert was filmed by Granada Television, produced and directed by Michael Darlow. The album was a follow-up to Cash's previous live album, the critically acclaimed and commercially successful At Folsom Prison. The album was certified gold on August 12, 1969, platinum and double platinum on November 21, 1986, and triple platinum on March 27, 2003 by the RIAA. The album was nominated for a number of Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and won Best Male Country Vocal Performance for "A Boy Named Sue." In 2010, the album was reissued on vinyl by Sundazed Records with the original Columbia catalog number LP 5362. The reissued Sundazed vinyl is an exact copy of the original record except that the back cover has a barcode and indicates it is a Sundazed issue

I was able to pick the Johnny Cash at San Quentin LP up at a recent estate sale for $1.00. Its in near mint condition and the owner kept the shrink wrap on the cover.

Johnny says they are taping the record and are broadcasting it in England.

Wanted Man, Darling Companion (With June Carter Cash & Carl Perkins) Starkville City Jail and San Quentin are songs I never heard before. Starville City Jail didn't sound to good, the words just didn't flow right....

On San Quentin, Johnny ends up playing it twice and later says on the album they may play it later on.

The biggest disappointment here is Folsum Prison Blues. It could have been the stand out song on this LP but it is cut off after only 27 seconds. Why? I don't know? Johnny does about 45 seconds of talking and strumming in the begininng, thanking the staff, gaurds & the warden, the inmates are heard booing after Johnny says "warden"..........Johhny remarks, "You don't really mean that do you"? The inmates erupt in applause and cheers. Johnny starts singing FPB and after 27 seconds the song fades out and you can hear the inmate screaming and yelling: " more, more"...........sounds like someone at the taping pulled the plug on the song and the inmates knew it was coming..

The song A Boy Named Sue is censored, there is a long bleep to cover up Johnny saying: "I'm the son of a bitch that named you Sue". The bleep covers the SOB words.

Walk The Line is an fine accoustic version.

Sound Quality on the LP is fine. No year listed when it was recorded. Recorded during the making of the Granada Television program

It seems this album was cut a number of different ways, but this cut only contains 10 songs. Some of these I think are from the Folsom Prison album. Like a lot of albums in the complete Columbia collection there is a collection of songs that were on other albums. But this album is really good in the fact that its live. Songs are as follows 1)Wanted Man, 2)Wreck Of The Old 97, 3)I Walk The Line, 4)Darling Companion, 5)Starkville City Jail, 6)San Quentin, 7)San Quentin #2 , 8)A Boy Named Sue, 9)(There'll Be) Peace In The Valley, 10)Folsom Prison Blues. Not special just good old Johnny Cash

While not offering a complete version of Johnny's greatest hit: "Folsom Prison Blues," this re-release of the "67 Smash does include a duet featuring June Carter Cash who appeared with Cash at San Quentin in San Rafael, CA.

This is not my favorite Johnny Cash album, but along with Folsom Prison, probably one of the five most important Cash albums. Everybody should own this due to its historical significance and great performances.
