This 2 on 1 collection consists of two great albums. The first is "El Paso City" (1976) and the other, "Adios Amigo" (1977), comprising 20 great tracks.

The title track on CD1 is a follow-up to the worldwide hit, "El Paso", recorded some twenty years earlier. "Ava Maria Morales" and "The Ballad Of Bill Thaxton" are both story-in-song tracks. "Way Out There" and "Trail Dreamin`" are Bob Nolan songs and are a tribute to the "Sons Of The Pioneers", indeed you could add another track, written by Marty, "Kin To The Wind", which is of that ilk. "I Did What I Did For Maria" was a big hit for Tony Christie, but the version by Marty seems to give it more validity. "I`m Gonna Miss You When You Go" is a gentle heartfelt ballad, whereas "She`s Just A Drifter" is a much more heavier paced song. Finally there is "Among My Souvenirs" a ballad that was a big hit for Connie Francis, of course.

CD2 has a cover of a Bobby Darin track, "18 Yellow Roses", another by Connie Francis, "My Happiness", "I Don`t Know Why (I Just Do) was a smash for Clarence `Frogman` Henry, although he called it "(I Don`t Know Why I Love You), But I Do" plus "My Blue Heaven" a big hit for Fats Domino. The remaining tracks are ballads, one "I`ve Never Loved Anyone More" was co-written by Mike Nesmith (of the Monkees). The title track was, in my opinion, commercial enough for a single release, the others, "Falling Out Of Love", A song that would suit Michael Buble, "Helen", "Inspiration For A Song" and "After The Storm" are all expertly performed.

Yes, a fine collection indeed, certainly advertising just what Marty Robbins was capable of. A voice that stands up as well today as all those years ago.
