Long forgotten musical tracks # 82

This week's long forgotten track was once so much popular that it was considered as a genre classic for its gripping narrative. "El Paso" is a country and western ballad written and originally recorded by Marty Robbins, and first released in September 1959. It soon became a major hit on both the country and pop music charts, reaching number one in both at the start of 1960. It won the Grammy Award for Best Country & Western Recording in 1961, and remains Robbins' best-known song.

Marty Robbins, born Martin David Robinson, (1925-1982) was an iconic country and Western singer of 1960's
