When I'm out looking for things to add to my vintage pop-culture collection. I like to pick up interesting albums and magazines too.

Sometimes those paths cross and I find a great vintage advertisement that is also for music. Like this one featuring Johnny Cash and Tammy Wynette!

It's for an album of songs by both musicians called "King and Queen" from 1969.

I have seen this album for sale on eBay as well in the past.

Here is some text from the advertisement to re-live those days when all we could do was wonder what the album was before buying it! 😊

Man! Older ads really had to work hard

That is a lot of text trying to convince us, wasn't it!

I still might have cut out the little coupon in the ad and sent it in though. It does seem pretty awesome.

This was a pretty cool print to find.
