Johnny Cash: Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison (Legacy Edition)

Mark Kemp, Paste, October 2008

IN THE DOCUMENTARY included with this new edition of Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison, daughter Rosanne shatters the mythology surrounding her dad, gently bringing him down to earth where he's always belonged. "He was a real man with great faults, and great genius and beauty in him," she says, "but he wasn't this guy who could save you or anyone else."
