This was Johnny's 4th album for Mercury - as far as I recall - after 28 years or so with Columbia, and has been very much overlooked. Can't claim to be one of his greatest fans, but this is definitely one of my own favourites. At the time of its release in 1991, Johnny was out of favour with the movers and shakers in Nashville, and consequently the album got little airplay, peaking at about 70 in the country charts. Which is a great shame, because the album has a bright sound, produced by Cowboy Jack Clements, and is full of excellent material. JC really was in good voice, backed up by a stellar bunch of pickers and singers. The opening track is of course about the original superstar JC. There is also some great chick-a-boom guitar from Marty Stuart on, for example, the re-cut of 'Hey, Porter', and it is so good to hear the great Tom T. Hall singing along with Johnny on Tom T.'s own 'I'll Go Somewhere And Sing My Songs Again', with some nice steel guitar from Lloyd Green. 'Wanted Man' attributed to JC and Dylan is another good 'un. If Johnny's later stuff with Rick Rubin got you into his music, please give this one an airing. You will not be disappointed.
