Marty Robbins: El Paso

I've received a few e-mails from followers of this blog asking why country music has been more or less ignored.  I couldn't come up with a good reason why, so if you're a fan of Country, Western, or Country Western you might enjoy this American original.

Marty Robbins (1925-1982) was a great writer and performer of ballads, which is something of a lost art these days.  He was also clearly a badass, hence the mustache, shirt, and diamond cross combination in the performance below.
