"My interest in Marty's singing began during the mid-sixties when I was browsing in a record shop and struck gold with the now famous red cover of Marty's "Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs" album. Although I added his follow-up albums to my collection, little did I realise that Marty's talent was not just confined to Country and Western and like a fool I was ignoring other little nuggets! After reading the previous reviews I decided to make it my goal to obtain a copy of this CD but after 10 weeks of placing orders just to see them cancelled due to unavailability, I was about to give up when Amazon's Market Place came to my rescue.Marty after Midnight! What can I say? Move over Nat! Step aside Dean? This album is a superb collection of some of the most relaxing songs to help you unwind by a singer with a voice as smooth as silk. This is a well thought-out compilation, each song complementing the next that ends with the upbeat "Sunny side of the Street" leaving you wanting more. Most definitely will become a favourite to anyone's CD collection and I fervently hope it becomes more readily available so others can enjoy this marvellous singer who can encompass all genres instead of mistakenly belonging on the Country and Western shelf!Well worth the purchase and a proud addition to my collection."

"Marty Robbins' "Marty After Midnight" is a true gem! Marty puts his own distinctive style on such old jazz standards as "On The Sunny Side of the Street" and "Pennies From Heaven." Along with some of these classics, Marty adds an original song "Don't Throw Me Away," which equals in quality to the other tracks. Country fans will definitely be surprised at how smooth and classy Marty's voice is throughout this album. After listening to this album, one cannot help but wonder what might have happened had Marty ventured more into the pop field, his vocal quality ranks with that of Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin. A true winner, check this one out!!!"
