Marty Robbins – Gunfighter Ballads and trail songs (1959)

A country album released 1959 by Columbia. Instruments on are Guitar, Bass and Drums.

I would suppose some more action from an album with an name like that (especially with song like „Billy the kid“). The music is sagging, just caring from song to song. All the songs sounds very similiar, there is no dynamic on this album. This is mostly true for the A-Side.

The B-Side has some top songs:

„El paso“ is a pretty famous song from this album, it´s a bit more agile than the other songs, but that doesn´t change anything of the albums quality.

„The Master´s call“ is much more action charge than all of the songs on the A-Side together.

„Running gun“ shows Robbins need for speed (he was a NASCAR driver).

But hey yeah, you know, an album need to be good overall and not just have some good songs on one side, so this is not recommded.
