Two excellent albums from country music legend Marty Robbins – back to back on a single CD! RFD marks a real return to roots for Marty Robbins – a set that strips away some of the gunfighter gimmicks and other concepts of previous albums, and gets Marty back to doing what he does best – singing well-written songs with that amazing vocal approach of his! The tunes are a nice array of heartbreaking tracks and a few slightly more whimsical numbers – but none that are ever too pop or too goofy – and which are set to lean small group backings, with plenty of steel guitar, in a nice change from some of the larger crossover charts of the time. Titles include "Southern Dixie Flyer", "Change That Dial", "She Means Nothing To Me Now", "Everybody's Darlin Plus Mine", "Urgently Needed", and "You Won't Have Her Long". My Kind Of Country is the kind of work that continued to keep Marty Robbins strong for many years late into his career! At a time when so many country singers were either crossing over with pop modes, or maybe getting buried in larger arrangements, Marty steps out here with the kind of clear, simple approach that you'd find in the classic country material of the 50s – a small group in the background, with relatively uncluttered instrumentation, but just the right
touches on steel guitar or fiddle – underscoring the effective inflections that always made the Robbins touch so fantastic on a tune. Titles include "Nine Tenths Of The Law", "Do
Me A Favor", "Sixteen Weeks", "Seconds To Remember", "Another Lost Weekend", "One Window Four Walls", and "I'll Have To Make Some Changes".
