features in: Album Chart of 1970Album Chart of the Decade: 1970s

TJR says

First foot into the 1970s for JC… and what a great title for an album. Surprised he hasn’t used it ’til now, what with having uttered those immortal words at the start of virtually every concert he’s played over the last 15 years. After having previously scored with “Jackson”, Johnny & June gain their second grammy award as a duet for “If I Were A Carpenter”, a song which reached No. 2 on the Country charts. The album’s highlight is “To Beat The Devil”, a song offered up by his friend, Kris Kristofferson. Johnny was first to market with this one, and Kris would soon release it himself on his debut LP, “Kristofferson”. Elsewhere, Cash digs all the way back to 1948 with a cool cover of Merle Travis’s “Devil To Pay”.
