Here's Alvie Self's Marty Robbins tribute 45, We Miss You Marty Robbins. Last time we heard from Alvie here on Beware Of The Blog, he was running down dirty hippies. So he loved Marty Robbins and despised hippies...my kind of guy!
Robbins died in 1982, but if he were still with us he'd be cutting a slice of his 86th birthday cake today. Self held back on releasing his tribute to Marty for over five years after his death, so his sincerity seems beyond question. It's certainly not like he was attempting to cash in on a recent tragedy.
About a year ago when I was in Nashville, I hit the library and looked up Marty Robbins in an old city directory. Below is a photo of the house in which he lived in 1966, located at 807 Redwood Drive, a few miles south of downtown Nashville. Google map.
