Johnny Cash's monumental At Folsom Prison remains a touchstone for country artists in and out of the mainstream, and a landmark in Cash's career, coming at the moment when he was ascending to the Mount Olympus of beloved American artists. As a statement of purpose, At Folsom Prison explores all the styles Cash has made his own and championed as the years have passed -- it's as honest an album as any artist has ever recorded. Bonus tracks include "Busted," "Joe Bean," and the tall tale Cash owns, "The Legend of John Henry's Hammer." Cash's original, Grammy-winning liner notes are reproduced, and he's added an intimate, personal reflection on this project to boot; for good measure, Steve Earle puts in his evocative two cents' worth in the liner copy as well.
