    I'm soooooo Excited!

    I am so happy B&N added this album to their Marty Robbins line up! La Paloma, girl From Spanish Town, Jamaica Farewell, Yours, La Borrachita...Amor...! I used to have this CD on an LP years ago!!! I am so happy!!! I know you will love this CD as well. Marty Robbins---Along with Ray Price--have the best singing voices of any genre! No one can come close to their abilities.
