Hello, I'm Johnny Cash

More of Old Golden Throat is a compilation album and 32nd overall album released by Johnny Cash exclusively in the UK on CBS Records in 1969 (see 1969 in music). Culled from single sides that had not previously appeared on albums (with the exceptions of "Honky-Tonk Girl" and "Lorena"), it is primarily made up of lesser-known songs, although "You Beat All I Ever Saw" and "Second Honeymoon" reached No. 20 and No. 15 respectively on the Country charts. Tracks 4, 7, 10 and 13 are instrumentals originally credited to "The Tennessee Two and Friend."

As with its predecessor, Old Golden Throat, this album was only available in monaural since its source material was originally mixed for single release.

This album has not been released on CD. Although the Cash solo recordings featured here were later included in the 63-disc 2012 release Johnny Cash: The Complete Columbia Album Collection on the bonus disc titled "The Singles, Plus", the four tracks credited to The Tennessee Two and Friend are omitted and have yet to be officially released on CD.
