One of country music s most eclectic heroes, Marty Robbins celebrated an extraordinary career as one of the genre s leading crossover artists. While Marty Robbins maintained a busy schedule throughout his life, it was without a doubt his early career that left the biggest impact on the world of country music. Johnny Cash released a version of I Couldn t Keep From Crying in 1960, while Guy Mitchell recorded versions of both Singing The Blues and Knee Deep In The Blues . Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs was included on Sony’s American Milestones series, a reissue collection that celebrated classic country and western records. El Paso became a concert staple for the Grateful Dead, who performed it 389 times between 1969 and 1995. Big Iron , which had reached the No. 5 in 1960, managed to transcend the years when introduced to a new generation in the 21st Century; it was included on the soundtrack to the 2010 videogame Fallout: New Vegas. This collection, presented across four discs and running in excess of five hours, collates the entirety of Marty Robbins output between 1952 and 1960, and in so doing, provides not only the perfect introduction to this country giant, but acts too as a welcome reminder for those already well-versed in Marty Robbins incredible work.
