Johnny Cash at Folsom and San Quentin: Photographs by Jim Marshall – coming in May 2018
Carefully curated with full access to the Jim Marshall Archive, this handsome oversized volume offers the definitive view of Johnny Cash’s legendary prison concerts at Folsom in 1968 and San Quentin in 1969. Cash performed two shows at Folsom prison. The resulting album was a hit in the United States, and its popularity revitalized Cash’s career and led to a follow up album, At San Quentin, the following year. Again, Marshall was personally invited to document the concert. From arriving off the bus outside the imposing prison walls, to shaking hands with prisoners (including Glen Sherley, who wrote the song “Greystone Chapel” sung by Cash), and performing until sweat dripped down his forehead, Marshall captured the passion, authority and intimacy of Cash’s performances.
