It'll Shine When It Shines is the second album by the Southern rock/country rock band, the Ozark Mountain Daredevils. Their debut album was successful enough to give the band the clout to record its sophomore effort, "It'll Shine When It Shines", on the musicians' home turf. For the session, they cut their tracks in the pre-Civil War house that served as their rehearsal space, with Johns and Anderle working from a mobile recording truck parked outside. The homey makeshift setup yielded a loose, organic vibe that invigorated material like Cash's tongue-in-cheek swamp-rocker "E.E. Lawson". This album contains their biggest single, "Jackie Blue", which reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1975. The song brought in by Lee late in the session, was recorded at the insistence of Glyn Johns, who cajoled Lee into altering his original lyrics about a drug-dealing friend into a fond ode to a free-spirited female loner.
