Johnny Cash plays a gig at Folsom Prison near Sacramento, California, for 2,000 delighted residents of that miserable place. The recording of the concert becomes a live album, one of Columbia Records’ most successful LPs ever — Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison. The lead single, an update of Cash’s 1956 hit Folsom Prison Blues, becomes one of his biggest hits, going to #1 on numerous charts and enduring. Enduring.
