 Notes & Reviews
 
EU-only compilation from the Country legend. Features the entire contents of Robbins' first LP, the ultra-rare 1956 release, 'Rock 'n' Roll'n Robbins'! 32-page booklet with many rare photos and the full story of Robbins' rock'n'roll recordings, along with a detailed discography! of all the established country artists to flirt with rockabilly and rock 'n' roll during the 1950s, Marty Robbins was probably the one who hated that music the most - but made the most authentic records! This compilation gathers all of Robbins' rockabilly records along with the cream of his teen pop and rock' n' roll recordings from the 1950s and '60s. in all, 29 fabulous tracks all taken from the original masters plus a bonus track of the only known recording of Marty Robbins performing the rockabilly classic, 'Sugaree' - a song he'd written and placed with the Jordanaires, Hank Ballard, Rusty York and many others. It's a fascinating and rockin' look at a country music superstar who might have been a rock'n'roll pioneer if things had turned out differently!
