Original Mono Version Unavailable for Close to 55 Years / Remastered by Vic Anesini at Sony's Battery Studios with Lacquer Cutting by Kevin Gray
Real Gone Music is proud to present, for the first time in close to 55 years, the original mono version of what most folks consider to be the single greatest postwar album of Western music, Marty Robbins' 1959 album Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs. Everything about this album is iconic, from its "quick draw" cover art to the songs it contains – "Big Iron," "Cool Water," "The Master's Call," "Billy the Kid," "The Strawberry Roan," and, of course, "El Paso" (here in its rare, full-length version) - that have come to define the Western genre. And the music has never sounded better than it does here: this limited edition (of 360 copies) colored vinyl pressing was remastered by Vic Anesini at Battery Studios in New York with lacquer cutting by Kevin Gray. Comes complete with the amazing original album art, too...it's the first vinyl reissue in the "modern" era of this classic record.
