A Concert Behind Prison Walls (V)

Johnny Cash headlines this 1976 televised concert, shot inside the Tennessee State Prison and featuring Linda Ronstadt, country picker Roy Clark, comedian Foster Brooks, whose '70s drunk act was always amusing. Ronstadt is surely appreciated for her sweet pop-blues (her "Love Has No Pride" nears epic intensity), and Clark's showmanship works with kitsch like "Orange Blossom Special." But it's Cash's "Sunday Morning Coming Down," Folsom Prison Blues," and famously bloody "Boy Named Sue" that resonate most powerfully with his, uh, captive audience.
