Essential Marty Robbins: 1951-1982 songs Product Information
Essential Marty Robbins: 1951-1982 album for sale by Marty Robbins was released Oct 29, 1991 on the Columbia label. The country singer Marty Robbins' instincts for survival, which may have been honed by an abusive early family life, repeatedly surface in this best-of in the form of some wildly differing stylistic changes. Beginning with straight-ahead country & western songs, like the early-1950s Hank Williams-influenced "Tomorrow You'll Be Gone" and his first hit, "I'll Go on Alone," this extensive two-CD compilation spans the intriguingly Western swing-tinged 1955 version of Arthur Crudup's "That's All Right," and a rockabilly "Maybellene" that returns the former "Ida Red" to its country roots, while the rocking "Tennessee Toddy" ("She was long and lean like a green string bean... ") stands in sharp contrast to the later saccharine country pop of "A White Sport Coat and a Pink Carnation." Robbins' lifelong infatuation with the old West gained him many hits, notably the beyond-the-grave ballad "El Paso," and made his the quintessential voice of cowboy music, represented here by songs like "Ghost Riders in the Sky." His pretty-yet-menacing "Devil Woman" is a skilful blend of country and pop, with a trace of calypso, and the subtly poignant "El Paso City" is a mariachi-laced, late-period visit to the scene of one of his best-known songs. Essential Marty Robbins: 1951-1982 CD music is a 2-disc set with 50 songs.
