This is a very special album! 16 July 2006
By B. J. Pruett - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The title doesn't do justice to this album; it's much more than a standard "Best of..." album. These really are some of his top songs and several are very hard to find elsewhere. I've got 3 copies of this CD just to make sure I will always have it handy.

Some of the rare songs are "Walking Piece of Heaven," "Don't You Think," "20th Century Drifter." The wonderfully-performed song "Love Me" is especially difficult to find on other albums; it's the song that Jeanne Pruett (no relation to me) wrote for him and was always a favorite with the audiences when he sang it live on the Grand Ole Opry. Buy the CD for this song alone! The songs "Life," "A Man and a Train," "It takes Faith," are the kind of inspirational songs Marty did so well, and "Crawlin' On My Knees" is a very traditional Marty type of song. This CD also showcases what a top songwriter Marty was and how emotional he could be.

For those who loved, and still love, Marty's music, this is one of the best CDs you can buy.

Some Of Marty's Lesser Known, But Better Music 26 April 2000
By W. David Ferrell - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a fine CD indeed! Most people are only familliar with Marty Robbins' hits for CBS, but there was a time in the early 1970's when he left CBS and, for a brief time, recorded for Decca/MCA, and these are some of those priceless recordings. This set starts off with the beautiful "Walking Piece Of Heaven" followed by "Love Me", a song with much the same sound and feel of "Begging To You". On "Twentieth Century Drifter", he sings of being a race car driver who dreams of winning first place and while just can't seem to live his dream, the woman in his life loves and understands him. "Don't You Think" and "Crawlin' On My Knees" are honest-to-goodness heart breaking Traditional Country tear jerkers, while "Life" is a bit more the Marty many remember hearing with the "crossover" sound that he, Ray Price and Jim Reeves made so popular... Strings and orchastra notwithstanding, Life shines through like a piece of gold and makes you think about what's important. "A Man And A Train" is the weak point of the album and is really not even worth talking about. "It Takes Faith" is really uplifting and inspirational, and serves as a reminder that we need faith in God to make it through the tough times: As the song says, "it takes faith to climb each mountain and it takes faith to face this life." The set finishes off with "Two Gun Daddy", which actually sounds like a Jimmy Rogers song and makes a fine ending to this package of songs. Buy this one. This is Marty at his best!
Not quite 'The Best of'.............. 19 May 2007
By D. F. Corne - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Marty Robbins' best work was undoubtedly on the Columbia label and these 10 are from his short sojourn with MCA. The best song on here is 'Life' which is Marty's 'My Way' and is a Marty Robbins original of the highest standard. Personally, I like 'A Man And A Train' (from the Lee Marvin movie) which Marty really belts out and showed how Robbins could cross the tracks so effortlessly from Country to any other genre. All in all, not a bad album but there are many better ones by one of the greatest talents ever to grace Country music. Other tracks include 'Love Me', 'Crawling On My Knees', 'Shotgun Rider' and a tipping of Mary's stetson to 'The Father of Country Music' Jimmie Rodgers with 'Two Gun Daddy.' As a side note, I believe ther is still some unreleased material from his post MCA days on Columbia which hasn't seen the light of day yet.

The Best of Marty Robbins 7 Feb. 2013
By Donald Wayne Butler - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Previous review by another reviewer indicated "A Train and a Man" was a cut that should not have been part of this great album. I purchased "Best of Marty Robbins" to obtain "A Train and a Man", having sought it out since seeing the movie wherein he sang "A Train and a Man". Great song by a great singer who will not soon be forgotten!
A good mix of songs 27 July 2013
By David E. Green - Published on
Format: Audio CD
It's not the best album of M.R. music but it gives you some interesting songs instead of just listening to his biggest hits. I'm not sure if the song "A Man and a Train" stand well on it's own but if you see the film "Emperor of the North" in which it was used it's very effective for that purpose.
