In 1969, off the back of the huge success of 1968’s At Folsom Prison album, Johnny Cash recorded the second of his legendary prison albums at California’s notorious maximum security prison, San Quentin. With the Folsom album kick starting a golden era of Cash’s career, At San Quentin continued his meteoric rise to his place as a legendary figure and icon of 20th century popular music. During the February 24 recording session, in typical Johnny Cash fashion, he got the already enthusiastic inmates on side with his song San Quentin which opens with the lyrics “San Quentin, you’ve been living hell to me” and he immediately replayed the song at the request of his cheering audience with both versions included on the original release of the At San Quentin album. 50 Years on, Daniel Thompson’s Johnny Cash Live hits the road celebrating this legendary album and the career of the Man in Black. A brand new show featuring more than 35 hits, Back to San Quentin – 50 Years On includes the great moments of the San Quentin album plus hits and favourites spanning Cash’s entire 50 year recording career.
