Format: MP3 Music
With one exception, "One Piece At a Time" gets better with each listening. The clunker is "Sold Out of Flag Poles" which was a back-handed salute to America's Bi-centennial (1976) when this album came out. The title cut, Cash's last #1 as a soloist for Columbia, is track 2 and follows "Let There Be Country" a salute to the country stars of the day. "Mountain Lady" a gentle ballad that Johnny wrote about his mother-in-law Maybelle Carter, is very touching. An uptempo getting out of prison song "Michigan City Howdy Do" is infectious in beat and message. Life in a psych ward for crazed country singers and wannabes is explored in the cleverly written "Committed to Parkview". Instrumentation is simple. The album wears well with age actually and is a must for even the more casual Cash fan.

I picked up the vinyl LP of "One Piece at a Time" when it was originally released back in... whenever. Just as one would never know Loudon Wainwright's genius if all they knew him for was "Dead Skunk", so it is with this collection. Beyond the immediate Top 40 crap-grab of the album's title cut, there are some really fine tunes here that give an glimpse of what Cash would deliver years later through his American Recordings series with Rick Rubin. "In a Young Girl's Mind" - a fine Hoyt Axton song - is covered near perfectly by JC. "Mountain Lady" - a loving tribute to his mother - asks "Did you ever get a rug to cover the crack where my diaper drug on your wooden floor?...". Showing his protest side, JC takes a poke at blind patriotism with "Sold Out of Flagpoles", and then leads the listener on a harrowing tour behind the scenes in "Committed to Parkview". The other songs, though not as distintive as these four, are vintage Cash also. Sure would like to hear this again on CD - i.e., without all the pops, cracks, and scratches from the tears and beers on my old LP.
