Marty Robbins Artist Snapshot:

Although best-known for such cowboy songs as "El Paso" and "Big Iron," 1950s, '60s and '70s country star Marty Robbins enjoyed a varied career that spanned the entire gamut between pure honky-tonk and countrypolitan. Robbins was gifted with one of country's most beautiful singing voices, one particularly well-suited to his many pop forays.

Product Notes

A lonely Westerner in Nashville, Marty Robbins salved his soul by cutting an album (in one afternoon) of mostly self-composed cowboy ballads. One of them was a four-and-a-half-minute epic, "El Paso," that broke every rule of Top 40 programming to become a No. 1 pop and country hit in 1960. Robbins was arguably the most surefooted and accomplished singer in all country music, and that was never more obvious than on these Western ballads performed to often breathtaking perfection with a very small group and a vocal trio. Other titles include "Big Iron" (also a Top 30 hit), "Running Gun," and Western classics like "Cool Water," "Billy the Kid," and "The Strawberry Roan." Three extra tracks flesh out the 1999 release, including "Saddle Tramp" (the B-side of "Big Iron") and "The Hanging Tree" (title song from the 1959 Gary Cooper Western). --Colin Escott
