Even though Johnny Cash's "At Folsom Prison" is the better known prison recorded live album, "At San Quentin" is seen as the artistically better album. Cash seems wilder - some attribute it to the loss of guitarist and friend Luther Perkins - yet at the same time more comfortable and more in tune with his audience. He jokes about his drug addiction, he rebels against orders from the British television company that is recording the show, and he really seems to want to kill the bastard who named him Sue. Wife June Carter shyly but surely joins in on 'Darlin' Companion', and he debuts the songs 'San Quentin' and 'Wanted Man', which he co-wrote with Bob Dylan.
After the huge success of "At Folsom Prison" this is Johnny Cash under pressure, and as he says himself, it's when he's at his best.
