Folsom Prison Blues

This day in history, Johnny Cash played the first of two concerts at the Folsom State Prison in Folsom California, which would later become the recording At Folsom Prison. Cash would later note that the audience was one of the most enthusiastic that he'd ever had. I've always liked this song, which was first recorded in 1956, and it's one that has the best traits of country music within it: story.
