Emmy Lou Harris


Beginning his career as an outlaw to the Nashville establishment, Johnny Cash has come to define country music over the last 40 years. At first, his unique mix of hillbilly music with gospel and blues made him a perfect fit at Sam Phillips' Sun records, where he recorded such classics as "Folsom Prison Blues" and "I Walk The Line." From there, Johnny signed with ... Read more in Amazon's Johnny Cash Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description


Listening to I Would Like to See You Again, one might accuse the Man in Black of waxing nostalgic. Just about everything on this album references the past, from surprisingly upbeat reminiscences of lost love and friendship to endearing stories of his childhood. Though "There Ain't No Good Chain Gang," one of two duets with Waylon Jennings, and the title track made chart appearances when this album was originally released in 1978, this is not the era remembered as Cash's finest hour. Still, there's something rather sweet and innocent about this collection, thanks in part to Larry Butler's multitextured production. By 1978, Cash had been at this for decades, and that alone gives him leave to spend a little time looking back. --Genevieve Williams

4.0 out of 5 stars Cash in the 70's June 13, 2000
Format:Audio CD
It is great to see that Columbia has released a new box-set by this great man, but somehow both the label and Johnny Cash himself seems to believe that the 70's were his darkest years. Nothing could be more far from the truth. Big John was in his peak years vocally speaking and did experiment more than any other country-singer. This is a fine album, highlighted by the excellent title track and his duets with Waylon. Now I like to see more releases from the 70's. I know John does not like "John R. Cash", but it is a fantastic album with covers of "My Old Kentucky Home", "Lady Came From Baltimore" and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down". Here are some other great Cash-albums that deserve the CD-teatment: "Gone Girl", "Silver", "One Piece At A Time", "Any Old Wind That Blows", "Man In Black", "A Thing Called Love", "Gospel Road", "Look At Them Beans", "Ragged Old Flag", "The Last Gunfighter Ballad" and a collection of obscure singles like these gems: "Praise The Lord And Pass The Soup", "No Need To Worry" and "A Little Bit Of Yesterday".

5.0 out of 5 stars JC reflecting on the past and wishing February 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This may not go down in history as one of Johnny's classic albums, but is still a very fine album that should not be ignored. The songs generally feature Johnny reminiscing about the past, as in the title track, or wishing, as in After taxes, where he lists all the ways he could spend his money if he didn't have to pay any taxes.

The album features two duets with Waylon Jennings - the earliest recordings they did together as far as I am aware, although they recorded plenty together in the eighties. I wish I was crazy again is brilliant, but the other duet, There ain't no good chain gang, is even better. It was one of two hits from the album, the other being the title track.
The song, I would like to see you again, has been covered by both Don Williams and Kenny Rogers, so that shows what a great song it is. In that song, Johnny reflects on the past but is not in any way bitter about it. For the most part, that is the mood of the album - reflective, easy-going, music. The lyrics provide food for thought if you listen closely, otherwise it serves as pleasant background music.

There is an amusing song, After taxes, about the taxman taking all his money. A bit of an exaggeration, perhaps, but a song that most of us can relate to in some way.

Johnny has made more attention-grabbing albums, but perhaps therein lies the charm of this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars I sure am glad to see you again June 9, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have upwards of 20 Johnny Cash albums but this one is my favourites and that is saying a lot. I was overjoyed to see it re-released on CD. The title track "I Would Like To See You Again" is one of my favourite songs ever, and in my opinion, quintessential Johnny Cash. Great too are "Who's Gene Autrey?", a nostalgic tribute to the genre and the good ole boys style track "There Ain't No Good Chain Gang" with Waylon Jennings. If you like vintage Johnny Cash, buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Singin' "Whoopi-ty-aye-yay." July 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was the first Johnny Cash album I ever heard. My Daddy had it on 8-track. I liked it then and I like it now. Having heard many more Johnny Cash albums since then, I realize that it's not one of his "classic" albums, but it's still quite good. Most of the album was recorded in September and October of 1977, with the exception of the two duets with Waylon Jennings, which were recorded in July of 1976. The biggest hit from the album was the Cash/Jennings duet "There Ain't No Good Chain Gang", which reached #2 on the Country chart. The b-side of that single, also featuring Cash & Jennings, was a hit in it's own right, topping out at #22. "I Would Like To See You Again" was another hit from the album, peaking at #12. Those are all good songs, and the other songs on the album are also good. If you are a Johnny Cash fan, you'll probably enjoy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Love the CD, but the sound quality is TERRIBLE. January 6, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is probably my favorite Johnny Cash album of all time, which is why I am INCREDIBLY disappointed in the sound quality of this CD, and I'm rather surprised no one else has mentioned it. I bought two copies of this CD, hoping the second one would sound better, but it's the same. The original album sounded much, much better than this. There's no high end, and it all sounds muffled to me. I think the thing that's so disappointing is that since it's been released on CD I doubt they'll remaster it and release it again. I've never experienced this problem before. The songs on this album rate five stars, but the sound quality of this CD makes it unlistenable, so I give it 1 star.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd Like To See You Again October 28, 2000
By Matej
Format:Audio CD
Well I'm very happy that the albums of J.R. are seeing light again, dressed in digital clothes, especially those long deleted. The highlight of this one is a duet with Waylon Jennings "There Ain't No Good Chain Gang" and Johnny's son John Carter features on "Who's Gene Autry". What about other 70's albums? They deserve to come out that way too. There are some great records there. Well, while waiting, let's have a little of I Would Like To See You Again. And if you liked this album, go seek an entire album done with Waylon, titled "Heroes". Those guys are still young at heart, you know.
