Against the advice of Columbia Records executives, Johnny Cash visits Folsom State Prison in California to record a live album. The resulting LP, “Live At Folsom Prison” would become one of Johnny’s biggest selling records, reaching #1 on the Country album chart and #13 on the Hot 200. It also produced one of his most memorable hit singles, “Folsom Prison Blues”. In 2003, “Live At Folsom Prison” was certified Triple Platinum by the RIAA for sales of over three million and was ranked #88 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
