Gunfighter Ballads & Trail Songs

LP (Item 775426) Columbia, 1959 — Condition: Very Good

Marty Robbins had one of those careers that must have left even die hard fans scratching their heads. His catalog ranges from typical syrupy 50s ballads, calypso numbers, Hawaiian guitar pop, and of course the cartoonish wild west gunfighter BS that we love him for! It's billed as "a classic concept album about the old west" but it's about as historically accurate as the Sergio Leone films of the same nature – and every bit as fun and, dare we say it, dramatically compelling! The eternally great "El Paso" is the master stroke here, and both the short and previously not included long versions are in the set. It was recently covered by unsung genius Howe Gelb & Giant Sand, and easily one of our favorite country tunes. Other tracks include "Big Iron", "Cold Water", "Running Gun" and "In The Valley".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
