Apart from owning the original LP, i also bought the complete concert on CD last week...and what a show it is !!!<br><br>I think it's one of the best ever live albums, ESPECIALLY when you think where it's been recorded...: in a prison !<br><br>I love the reactions of the inmates to the songs about prison-life, such as Starkville City Jail, Folsom Prison Blues and ,OF COURSE, San Quentin (''may you rot and burn in hell'')...<br><br>The show has also been recorded for television by Granada Television Program and i wonder has it ever been broadcasted and most important :<br><br>Will it ever be released on DVD ???<br><br>I would love to see it...<br><br>Wouldn't you ???

I got in touch with Cash through his latest records, later, a friend gave me the San Quentin LP that he'd bought at a flea market. Man, what record indeed!<br><br>Besides the crowd's response, I like the title track (San Quentin, which he plays twice) and also The Boy Named Sue especially when Johnny goes like "...Now your gonna die!"<br><br>So, later on I bought the cd myself, it comes with a lot of extra tracks when you compare it with the LP.<br><br>A release on DVD?<br>Yes please!<br><br>Allthough, I really hope he'll manage to make one final record.
