Super Hot Stamper

Marty Robbins
Gunfighter Ballads & Trail Songs

  (Item #: robbigunfi_1901) 

Our Price: $179.99

  • With outstanding Double Plus (A++) grades on both sides, this Six-Eye Columbia pressing was one of the better sounding copies from our most recent shootout
  • The sound here is amazingly clear and open, superior to most in that regard, with fairly smooth and rich vocals to boot
  • Is the original Six Eye stereo the only way to go on this record? We discuss the subject in detail below
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The single most influential album of Western songs in post-World War II American music. The longevity of the album's appeal is a result of Marty Robbins' love of the repertory at hand and the mix of his youthful dynamism and prodigious talent..."

Marty Robbins - Gunfighter Ballads & Trail Songs

Our Shootout Winner from 2014

  (Item #: robbigunfi_2014) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

TWO SUPERB TRIPLE PLUS SIDES, with the kind of '50's Tubey Magical Analog Sound that's been lost to the world of recorded music for decades -- decades I tell you! Nobody can manage to get a recording to sound like this anymore and it seems as if no one can even remaster a recording like this anymore, if our direct experience with scores of such albums counts as any sort of evidence.

Marty Robbins - Hawaii's Calling Me

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: robbihawai_2015) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

Hearing this kind of Tubey Magical, tonally correct, rich, sweet, spacious sound is nothing less than a THRILL. The Analog sound of this pressing makes a mockery of even the most advanced digital playback systems, including the ones that haven't been invented yet. I'd love to play this for Neil Young so he can see what he's up against. Good Luck, Neil, you're going to need it.

Marty Robbins - Hawaii's Calling Me

Skip the Mono

  (Item #: robbihawai_mono) 



Sonic Grade: F

A great sounding record in stereo, potentially anyway, but in mono the bad sound puts it firmly in our Hall of Shame.

Stick with stereo; the MONO pressings aren't worth anybody's time (scratch that: any audiophile's time). If you see one for a buck at a garage sale, pick it up for the music, and then be on the lookout for a nice stereo original to enjoy for the sound. A public service from the record loving audiophiles here at Better Records.

Marty Robbins, Johnny Cash, et al. - Greatest C&W Hits Vol 4

Reviewed in 2012

  (Item #: variogreat_2012) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

WOW! (Or should that be OMG?) This Columbia 360 original pressing has AMAZING DEMO DISC sound on many of its twelve tracks, tracks by some of the biggest names in country at the time. To hear Jimmy Dean sing Big Bad John or Marty Robbins' do Devil Woman with this kind of Tubey Magical, tonally correct, rich, sweet, spacious sound is nothing less than a THRILL. The Analog sound of this pressing makes a mockery of even the most advanced digital playback systems, including the ones that haven't been invented yet. I'd love to play this for Neil Young so he can see what he's up against! Good Luck, Neil, you're going to need it.
