Overview

Cutting away all of Marty Robbins' rock & roll, Hawaiian and cowboy recordings, Bear Family's four-disc box set Country (1960-1966) contains nothing but his straight country and country-pop recordings of the early '60s. During that era, Robbins was one of the most popular performers in country music, scoring an impressive series of Top 10 hits and pop crossovers like "Don't Worry" and "Devil Woman," which are all included on this set. Where many Bear Family sets are so thorough and complete, they merely wind up being exhausting, Country (1960-1966) is entertaining from start to finish, since it is sequenced in a logical, listenable order and doesn't dwell on the rarities. Any serious fan of Robbins will find the set an essential addition to their library, and it is arguably the finest Robbins box Bear Family has released.

Marty Robbins was quite simply a unique talent. If he hadn't made it in the Country field he would have made it in the Pop field. Allied to his great song writing ability his magnificent vocals embellished by his wonderful heart on sleeve approach made him arguably the greatest vocalist ever to grace Country music. This album includes hits like 'Devil Woman', 'Don't Worry', 'Ribbon of Darkness' 'The Shoe goes on the other foot tonight' and 'Cigarettes and Coffee Blues.' Scratch below the surface and find some wonderful versions of 'Long Long Ago', 'No one will ever know', 'Just before the battle mother' and 'Beautiful Dreamer.' This box set is quality all the way, but then you wouldn't expect anything else from Marty Robbins.
