Juice (Juice Newton album). Juice is the multi-Platinum 1981 breakthrough album by American country-rock singer Juice Newton. The album was Newton's third solo album and her first major international success.
Juice was Juice Newton's breakthrough album, sending her into not only into the country Top Ten, but also to the top of the pop charts. The key to her success was how her country-pop not only drew from country roots, but also '60s AM pop, folk-rock, and roots rock. For instance, the country production on "Angel of the Morning" can't disguise its soft rock roots. But Newton's version is slicker, which appealed both to country and pop radio. Throughout Juice, Newton straddles the line between country and pop, playing to both sides of the market. As it happened, she appealed to both. As an album, Juice has its weak moments, but she sings well throughout the record, and when she has the right material - as on the hit singles - the results are highly entertaining.

Juice Newton began her recording career in 1975 but did not achieve major stardom until the release of her 1981 album Juice. The album was a crossover success and yielded three hit singles, "Angel of the Morning", "Queen of Hearts", and "The Sweetest Thing (I've Ever Known)". Other standout performances include "The Old Bye And Bye", written by her longtime collaborator Otha Young and a rich version of Deborah Allen's "If I Didn’t Love You". I Still Love You" and "Someone Believed" are both sung with enviable passion. Emotion is a daunting album rich in emotional texture and a mellow vibe. It was misunderstood upon its original release.
Juice Newton began her recording career in 1975 and made five albums over the next four years. During this time she had only moderate success Newton's "breakthrough" came in 1981 with Juice, an album that reach number 22 on the Billboard 200 chart and number 16 on the Canadian Top 50 album chart.
