As it’s been said many times, by many people, Marty Robbins was a truly original stage entertainer and a recording artist without music barriers, although country was his natural forte. The two vintage albums in this collection clearly proved his country status and why he was – and remains, in the view of numerous fans worldwide – one of this music’s finest.
With the death of George Jones on 26th April 2013, country music lost one of its finest exponents, if not the finest. Many name him the greatest male vocalist in country music history and, in an almost 60 year recording career, he not only delighted fans but also influenced many other artists who followed in his footsteps.
The two albums featured in this collection “Today” (1971) and “Don’t Let Me Touch You” (1977) mainly spotlight Marty Robbins as a singer of ballads, material that perfectly shows off his effortless, distinctive vocal skills.
