All Baby Boomers knew Marty Robbin's, "El Paso"...but did you know there was a prelude to the ballad?
Very nice, John. Mr Robbins was one of a kind when it came to singing. Thanks for posting.
There were some other similar ones on his Gunfighter Ballads albums. Great singer.
A wonderful ballad, though it is sequel to "El Paso", and was itself followed by "El Paso City". The Spanish guitar accompaniment by Grady Martin is unsurpassed.
The song "Town of El Paso" is simply pure songwriting genius. A complete Western movie in a song, and under three minutes.
