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

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".

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.

My parents were Johnny Cash fans. They didn't have all of his records but they had a lot of them. So I grew up listening to a lot of his music. And I remember watching his t.v. show too. Although it seemed like it was over shadowed by Glen Campbell's show. I was always kind of hit or miss with his music. I liked some of his songs. And didn't think too much one way or the other on a lot of his music. My parent's didn't have this record. And i bought the '45 myself. When the cd came out I bought it. And it was the first time I had ever heard the entire album.
What you get is Johnny Cash from the '70s. This came out in 1978. His songs weren't as big . And his hits weren't becoming the classics like he had been having. But the music is still good. The title song I Would Like To See You Again is a perfect example of his music from that period. A hit. But not a monster. Just barely missing the top ten. But I think it is one of his best songs. Who's Gene Autry was recorded with his son who asks the question Who Is Gene Autry who for later generations was probably better known for owning a baseball team then anything else. There are two duets with Waylon Jennings both of which were hits. I Wish I Was Crazy Again which could have been both of their theme songs at that point in their lives. And also There Aint No Good Chain Gang which turned out to be the biggest hit on the album. And I wonder if it hadn't of been a duet if it would have been a hit. At that point in time Waylon was bigger then Johnny. And everything Waylon was doing was a hit. This is a good cd from a different part of Johnny Cash's career.

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.

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.
