Picks and Pans Review: The Performer

Marty Robbins

In his 70 or so albums C&W veteran Robbins has had a Tex-Mex period (Adios Amigo, Alamo, Bound for Old Mexico), a gunfighter period (Gun-fighter Ballads & Trail Songs, More Gunfighter Ballads & Trail Songs, Return of the Gunfighters) and a dozen "Best of" LPs. Now the bourbon voice that brought you El Paso is pouring out lush country pop about loveā€”neat (Touch Me with Magic) and on the rocks (Please Don't Play a Love Song). The result sounds a little like Elvis Presley trying to sing with Lawrence Welk's band.
