Based on Marty Robbins ' syndicated television series of the same name, The Drifter was one of the purest cowboy albums Robbins ever made.
Though he had made several cowboy albums before -- indeed, his love of Western music informed much of his music -- the instrumentation and song selection on The Drifter Feleena (From El Paso) - Marty Robbins - The Drifter stripped-down and direct, concentrating almost entirely on epic Western narrative sagas.
The lack of concise songs resulted in a less successful album by commercial standards -- only "Mr. Shorty" was a hit, while the "El Paso" sequel "Feleena" ran over eight minutes -- but The Drifter was one of Robbins ' most artistically ambitious albums, as well as one of his most accomplished.
