Post Title? I'll Go With "The Bird."


It was 45 years ago this week that Johnny Cash made his first performance of several at San Quentin Prison.

"He entertained the inmates for free, including Merle Haggard, who was serving a little under three years for burglary. Cash had already hit the country charts over 30 times, and had a couple of current singles, 'Second Honeymoon' on Columbia Records, and 'Mean Eyed Cat' from the Sun Records vaults."
