The missing tracks tell an interesting tale, as Cash performed his original prison number, "Folsom Prison Blues," which strangely wound up on the cutting-room floor, as did his signature "Ring of Fire." Most telling is the fact that the majority of the excised material consists of Cash's musical sermonizing, including "He Turned the Water Into Wine" and "The Old Account Was Settled Long Ago." As a complete listening experience, the newly restored San Quentin makes a great deal more sense than its edited predecessor. The package itself features liner notes from Cash's wife, June Carter Cash, as well as Cash's old guitarist Marty Stuart (who also interviews Merle Haggard here, as Haggard had seen one of Cash's earlier San Quentin shows as a guest of the state). In a year that has already seen a number of triumphs for Johnny Cash, the much-deserved restoration of Johnny Cash at San Quentin may stand as one of the best and most welcomed of the bunch.
