The performance included, “Folsom Prison Blues,” The Long Black Veil,” and “25 Minutes to Go.” The show was recorded, and the album, “At Folsom Prison” was released later that year, reaching number 9 on the Pop Albums chart. Cash’s gritty songs about the hardships of prison life and the audience’s enthusiastic response heard in the background earned the album rave reviews, as it was certified gold a few months after its release and revitalized Cash’s singing career.
