Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs by Marty Robbins

Marty Robbins Gunfighters 087

Marty Robbins, Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs, Columbia CL 1349. 1959. “Big Iron” “Cool Water” “Billy the Kid” “A Hundred and Sixty Acres” “They’re Hanging Me Tonight” “Strawberry Roan” “El Paso” In the Valley” “The Master’s Call” “Running Gun” “Down in the Little Green Valley” “Utah Carol” Marty Robbins had a 30-year career placing singles on the Country Western chart from 1952 to 1983. “El Paso” was his only #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. It’s a rather pathetic song, a guy loves “wicked Felina” and dies because of his love for this wicked woman. I like the almost pink cover with a man in black with a gun. Amazon has the CD of Gunfighter Ballads & Trail Songsand one withMore Gunfighter Ballads.

  1. I liked Marty Robbins best when he had his mustache. On another note, I remember a story in one of my schoolbooks that was much like “El Paso”, where the main character is running from the law and gets shot at the end. Is that depressing or what???


  2. … on another note, the first time I posted that comment, it got deleted. Maybe you’ve had more comments but your blog program deleted them by mistake… you might want to check that out…


    1. I just installed an extra spam check today. Thanks for letting me know. I was getting about 10 a day and it was crazy. I’ll change the settings and see if that improves things.
