"There are lots of Marty Robbins compilation CDs out there. With a 30-year recording career, he left behind a lot to compile. Unfortunately, a lot of it ain't worth the plastic -- or whatever CDs are made out of -- it's pressed on. This CD features his best work over a 15 year span. The CD shows Robbins' incredible range, without wasting a lot of time on the MOR/Easy Listening material that punctuates his career. Here's where you can find "El Paso," "Singing the Blues", "White Sportscoat," "Devil Woman" and "Big Iron" all on one convenient -- and cheap -- CD."
Marty "What a Story!" Robbins

"Marty Robbins has always been the "different" kind a country singer; and that is why I love his sound! Whether out on "The Mesa" with his guitar (so to speak), or at a dive hittin' a Rockabilly rift; Marty's songs have so much life. This collection is the best total package I've seen. You get a little bit of everything; and if you love his variety pick this one up! "Don't Worry" may have been considered pop in its day, but I see it as a classic 50's ballad. "A White Sport Coat (With A Pink Carnation)" also thought to be "poppy" has that raw Rockabilly feel reminiscent of the early Sun Recordings. And "Big Iron" is the finest tune ever written about the Old West. The liner notes tell of his life in the business; an interesting story worthy of the title. Definately a collection worth checking out! Buy it with confidence. Enjoy!"
Its all good BUT

"I have to say, sad for Marty no doubt, but even after hearing this album I still like his earlier (earliest?) works, 'gunfighter ballads', and 'more gunfighter ballads' a lot more. I'm shocked to see "Ballad of the Alamo" not on this collection. I suspect that i'm complaining about Mr Robbins not sticking to the one style that i loved but there it is. thats my 5c worth."
