Good Tunes

Marty Robbins has always been one of my favorite singers. He died in 1982 of complications following cardiac surgery, and the world is poorer for his absence. Here's a couple of songs by him for your listening pleasure.

The first is one of my favorites, "El Paso." I tried to find a good video of the follow up song "El Paso City" but the one I found had severe problems with the audio. I do however suggest that you all give it a listen. It and "El Paso" bookend each other nicely. The second song here is the gun fighter classic "Big Iron" over scenes from one of my favorite animes Cowboy Bebop. Enjoy!
