Johnny Cash: The Last Gunfighter Ballad

Mick Farren, New Musical Express, 5 March 1977

THE PICTURE on the cover shows Cash, head and shoulders, in a beat-up cowboy hat that looks like the one he wore in the movie A Gunfight, made a few years ago with Kirk Douglas. He's waving a chrome-plated sixgun at the camera. The sleeve notes tell you it used to belong to Hank Williams and was given to him be Hank Williams Jr.
