Johnny Cash Box Set to Feature Folsom Prison Performance
A box set featuring live recordings from Johnny Cash's famous Folsom State Prison concerts is set for release October 14. The three-disc CD/DVD set will include the entire first and second concerts, including the previously unreleased tracks 'Blue Suede Shoes,' 'This Ole House,' 'I'm Here to Get My Baby Out of Jail,' 'June's Poems' and 27 other performances never before included on an album.
The DVD will feature footage from the 1968 concerts, as well as conversations with former prisoners who were in the audience. It will also include interviews with Cash's buddies Merle Haggard and Marty Stuart, and with his daughter, Rosanne Cash.
A week before the Folsom box set is released, another Cash DVD set will hit stores -- this one featuring four special holiday concerts from the late '70s. It will include appearances by Kris Kristofferson, Tom T. Hall and comedian Steve Martin.
