Notes

Charles Lee Guy, III was convicted of involuntary manslaughter at 16 and spent his years in prison practicing singing and playing guitar. He sent an unsolicited demo to Capitol Records, and producer Ken Nelson, sensing a potentially lucrative gimmick, signed Guy. His sole album, The Prisoner's Dream, was recorded in a prison auditorium with Joe Maphis on acoustic guitar. The cover illustration depicts Guy strumming his guitar behind prison bars, and nearly all of the selections are prison songs. Spade Cooley, who was in prison at the time for killing his wife, contributed an original composition, "Cold Gray Bars," but most of the songs are well-known ones like "Folsom Prison," "The Prisoner's Song," and "Cigarettes, Whiskey and Wild, Wild Women."
