Johnny Cash is not someone I am looking forward to listening to sing. I remember a few years back when everyone went crazy when he sang NIN’s Hurt. It used to be one of my favourite songs, but Cash ruined. I was not on the bandwagon. I also remember Cash because of my grandfather. He listened to him a lot. I hated both of them.
I am not sure how At Folsom Prison got onto the list of 1001 Albums… It does not follow the criteria that was set in the book. I think live albums fall into the greatest hits category and the book does not include best of any artist albums. I still hate live albums.
I did not like the banter with Cash and the prisoners. I did not like his voice. I did not like his lyrics. I can see he has a demographic, but I do not fit into it. It was awful. 3/10.
