It reached No. 4 and spent 25 weeks on the Billboard country chart. The title track reached No. 1 in the singles chart and The Girl With Gardenias In Her Hair reached No. 9.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Country Balladeer Ever 17 Sep 2013
You really can't go wrong with this strong double CD offering from the one and only Marty Robbins. Coming from the mid 60's when he was in the middle of what would be a 15 year purple patch, Marty illustrates what a tremendously talented and versatile vocalist he was. The first album is not country, but sees Marty dispensing great standards like 'As Time Goes By', 'That Old Feeling','Love Is Blue', 'You Made Me Love You' along side two of his own great ballads 'Virginia'and 'To Be In Love With Her' plus Glen Campbell's/Jimmy Webb's 'By The Time I Get To Phoenix'. 'Am I That Easy To Forget' and a really classy version of Paul McCartney's 'Yesterday' which is as good as any version you're likely to hear.
The other album sees Marty riding south of the border with a Mexican influence and another host of fine ballads including 'Tonight Carmen', 'The Girl With Gardenias In Her Hair', 'Don't Go Away Senor', 'Waiting In Reno', 'Love's Gone Away' and 'Is There Anything Left I Can Say.'
If you're looking for a country sound on this CD, you won't find it, but what you will find is the greatest ever country balladeer showing what a truly great singer he was and also where the songs are written by him what a gifted songwriter he was too.

5.0 out of 5 stars DOUBLE TOP 5 Aug 2013
By ROBIN
Verified Purchase
Two contrasting albums, "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" (1968) and "Tonight Carmen" (1967), again show how versatile Marty Robbins was.

The first album is not what you would call a country album, by any means, it is a collection of ballads beautifully sung with compassion and feeling, and accompanied by a full orchestra and chorus. Whilst every song is special, his versions of the title track plus "Am I That Easy To Forget", "Love Is Blue", the hauntingly beautiful self-penned "Virginia", "Until We Meet Again", "Yesterday" and another of his own compositions, "Love Is In The Air", show a sensitivity overlooked by many of his critics. There are 4 more tracks making 11 in all.

"Tonight Carmen" was a major hit on the singles charts and it sets the tone for a very different collection of Mexican inspired songs. None of the songs, other than the afore-mentioned title track are particularly well-known, but there is definitely a Tijuana feeling there. "Is There Anything Left I Can Say", "Love`s Gone Away", "The Girl With Gardenias In Her Hair" and "The Mission In Guadalajara" are my favourites, although the other 7 are very good too!

Yes, 22 tracks, all sung in the typical style of a legend called Marty Robbins. I cannot say better than that. Buy a copy of this CD and if you are a fan you will not be disappointed.
