“Everybody Loves A Nut” by Johnny Cash - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1966Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

The first of two JC albums in 1966 sees him continue down the concept line, this one opting for the comedic “Saturday night variety” slant. It’s not too bad… although I don’t think I laughed once. For the second album in a row (having previously covered “25 Minutes To Go”) Cash covers a Shel Silvestein, this time with “Boa Constrictor”. It’s nowhere near as vital, and perhaps sums up the album as a whole. Elsewhere, “Austin Prison” is a re-recorded version of the song which had appeared on “Songs Of Our Soil" in 1959. Passmarks… but, all the same, an alarming 2 point fall from last year’s magnificent “Ballads of the True West” LP…
