Album Notes

Marty Robbins' 1959 smash hit 'El Paso' is one of the most beloved story songs in country & western music. To celebrate its 60th anniversary, The Carolyn Sills Combo returns to El Paso with five original songs written from the perspectives of the characters present that fateful night at Rosa's Cantina. The 2018 Ameripolitan Award winning group teamed up with legendary producer Sylvia Massy at a remote studio in Joshua Tree, CA, to record this highly anticipated concept album.

In Return to El Paso, The Carolyn Sills Combo creates a vivid backstory for that evening in El Paso, told from the perspective of each of its characters. Fans of Robbins’ epic song will find all of their favorites here – from the heartsick narrator to the unfaithful Feleena and even the horse on which the narrator makes his quick getaway into the desert.

The album was recorded in Joshua Tree, California, where renowned producer-engineer Sylvia Massy (Rick Rubin, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty) worked with the group over two days to tell the tale, from perfecting the beautiful Western harmonies to the aching Spanish guitar that evokes the sound that Nashville studio musician Grady Martin laid down for the original “El Paso.”

The record kicks off with “Feleena,” a voyage into the mind of Robbins’ jealous cowboy who begs for his love to refrain from heading to Rosa’s Cantina that fateful night. As the album progresses, the entire story unfolds, from meeting “The Handsome Young Stranger” to the humorously sorrowful “I’m Not Crying; I’ve Just Rubbed Jalapeños in My Eyes.” Our star-crossed narrator is fated into meeting his method of escape in the rollicking “Hold Your Horses” before the tale concludes with the “The Ranger.”

The release of Return to El Paso marks the 60th anniversary of the Robbins classic, which appeared on the platinum selling album Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs. In addition to taking listeners on an entrancing journey into the events of its Grammy winning single, “El Paso,” Return to El Paso also features references to Robbins’ 1966 sequel “Feleena (From El Paso)” and his 1976 hit “El Paso City.”
