Description

This quintessential release features Marty Robbins'' follow-up album to his successful Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs (1959): More Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs, originally issued on the Columbia label in the summer of 1960. The LP would peak at number 21 on the pop album charts, compared to the number 6 spot achieved by its predecessor. It is similar to the earlier album, with the sound a little more stripped down in the vocal department and perhaps less romanticized than the earlier record. Robbins'' originals are authored in an authentically vintage style, interspersed with public domain titles, some established works by Bob Nolan of the Sons of the Pioneers, and a handful of new compositions (notably by Jim Glaser). The album opens with a track that tells of an outlaw who risks his life to return to a Texas town to see the girl he loves. Perhaps you''re thinking El Paso, if so, you''d be wrong. San Angelo is similar in many ways to the Robbins classic, however in this tragic story, none of the three protagonists - the outlaw, the girl and the Ranger - survive. Other similarities include the tempos and harmonies, but the latter tune is still different enough to stand on its own. It''s a story almost as good as El Paso. The album also contains Streets of Laredo, the famous cowboy ballad also known as Cowboy''s Lament. Almost every western singer has sung this song at some point, but the best version remains Marty Robbins''. This sensational album has been remastered and packaged in this very special collector''s edition, which also includes 4 bonus tracks from the same period.
