´"Hello, I'm Johnny Cash is the 33rd album released by country singer Johnny Cash on Columbia Records in 1970. "If I Were a Carpenter", a famous duet with Cash's wife, June Carter Cash, earned the couple a Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal in 1971; the song also reached No. 2 on the Country charts. The album also includes "To Beat the Devil", the first Kris Kristofferson song covered by Cash; the two would later collaborate numerous times, most famously on "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down". "See Ruby Fall" and "Blistered" were also released as singles, and the album itself reached No. 1 on the country charts and No. 6 on the pop charts. It was certified Gold on 1/29/1970 by the R.I.A.A."
This Vintage album is in Superb condition, shines like new, as well as the record labels without any noticeable wear or spindle marks, but only very minor scuffing and scratches but no writing or spindle marks. The record plays with no pops, sticking, jumps, but with only slightly detectable crackle on headphones but not on my stereo set speakers, from the same turntable source. The "360 Sound" quality is simply Superb with no distortion and no groove wear, either.
The record comes in a Columbia advertisement sleeve which has just a few minor wrinkles, but most importantly is completely unsplit. The original gatefold Columbia cover is in Brilliant Excellent condition with minor edge wear, no spinal wear, rips, tears, splits, annotations, or writing but shows normal shelf wear and slight vinyl bulge and is still very flat looking. The opening edge is beautifully straight with barely any feathering.
We also have five (5) other Johnny Cash albums for sale and you could save on S&H by multiple purchases (see last 2 photos). I use special made, secure record mailers and always ship vinyl outside of the jacket to prevent seam splits.
