#5 - Folsom Prison Blues

The following (7) Chart entries should be removed from this 1968 recording and transferred to the original 1955 (or 1956 ) recording. 1. Grammy Hall of Fame (1956); 2. DDD 7 of 1955; 3. NuTsie 53 of 1950's; 4. Acclaimed 159 (1956); 5. Rolling Stone 164; 6. RYM 4 of 1955; 7. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 500.

We've created a seperate entry for the 1968 version. Thanks for the suggestion

#5- Folsom Prison Blues

There are (2) recordings of this song. The original (from 1955) is the one elected to Grammy Hall of Fame, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Rolling Stone # 164 and Acclaimed 159. I feel this recording should be separated out and make the 1955 list. You have vastly overrated the 1968 recording.

Johnny Cash

Song 1 (Hurt) certification - 2x platinum is for video clip, not single.

Hmm, an interesting one. Clearly the certification is for a version of the song and it is listed on the RIAA web site. We feel that this means we should keep it listed.

We have put a comment on the top of the artist page so that users understand that the certification is not for the single.

Thanks for the input
