1. Great Pic!

I love that he came out there without a bunch of props and just played and sang. Must have been quite a show.

4. Correct me if I`m wrong but...

 

Wasn`t Merle Haggard in Folsom at this time? I could have sworn I had heard this show was instrumental in his pursuing a music career... Very damned cool picture.

edit: Just went and checked.. I was half right.. Haggard was in San Quentin but this album influenced him to join the prison band there.

5. Cash was inspired to write the song, Folsom Prison Blues after seeing a movie about the prison

I think his drug use and brushes with the law probably influenced his decision to play at the prison itself. He understood that men in prisons are souls that society has thrown away.
