The song "Barney" was on the original 1969 pressings of the album. The Salem cigarette company filed a claim that the music was a violation of their copyrighted theme for their commercials. As a result, the original LP was recalled and then re-released without this song on it.
The review published in the March 8, 1969 issue of Billboard magazine said, "It appears Miss Lynn can do no wrong when it comes to unique and fine performances and top sales. The title tune of this hot LP went right to the top of the country charts and this package of clever material will fast follow suit. Among the highlights are "You've Just Stepped In", "Kaw-Liga", and the compelling Teddy Wilburn ballad, "Taking the Place of My Man"."
The album was given a positive review by Allmusic, which gave the album 4 out of 5 stars and called the album cover "one of the classic politically incorrect album covers."
Recording sessions for the album took place at Bradley's Barn, Mount Juliet, TN, beginning on May 9, 1968. Three additional sessions followed on August 30, November 18 and November 19, 1968. "Living My Lifetime for You" was recorded during the January 9, 1968 session for 1968's Fist City. "(This Bottle's) Taking the Place of My Man" was recorded during the April 20, 1967 session for Lynn's 1967 album, Singin' with Feelin'.
