John R. Cash was released in 1975, and as the heading suggests Cash himself in an interview stated it was his least favorite album. The reason why was the basic tracks were cut in Nashville as well as Cash's vocals, then shipped to L.A. where big time pop producer Gary Klein finished it with lots of strings, vocals and sweetening. There is no "boom-chicka-boom" trademark Cash on this album. But, what you do have is a wonderful collection of songs from some of the times best writers. Two singles, "My Old Kentucky Home" (Randy Newman not Stephen Foster) and Tim Hardin's "The Lady Came From Baltimore" didn't burn up the charts, but are quality through and through. Great love songs "Smokey Factory Blues" and "Hard Times Comin'" plus Cash's take on the classic "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" makes this album very enjoyable. Yes, the arrangements are lush at times but Cash's powerful voice seems to wrap around it just fine. Step One: Listen to the samples. Step Two: purchase and download!

Format: MP3 Music
I understand where Johnny was coming from, not liking the album because it was produced in Los Angeles by Gary Klein (the man who, in 1977, produced Dolly Parton's Here you come again) but I enjoy it. Unlike Here you come again, which I regard as outstanding even though its country credentials are questionable to say the least, this album is still clearly a country album even though it sounds a little more polished.

The album didn't chart, but the first single, The lady came from Baltimore, was a top 20 country hit. The second single, My Old Kentucky Home (Turpentine and Dandelion Wine), made the top 50.

Of the other tracks, the strangest choice was Lonesome to the bone, which Johnny had recorded for his album, Ragged old flag, only a few months earlier. This version sounds different with Gary Klein's production, but not dramatically so. I prefer Cocaine Carolina and the covers of two famous classics (Reason to believe, The night they drove old dixie down).

Perhaps because Johnny Cash himself didn't like it, this album is often overlooked, but I think there's plenty to like about it.

He truly was a legend, and he covered many topics through his music.He even made other people songs, sound like his own! Greatly missed the Man In Black!

I'm glad Sony Music has *FINALLY* reissued Johnny Cash's 70s and 80s Columbia albums (I've always loved "My Old Kentucky Home"), but they need to be released on physical CDs in addition to MP3 files. Hopefully someone at Sony Music will sit up and pay attention.
