Country Club 20: El Paso, Faleena, and El Paso city

Since the series finale of Breaking Bad was named after a character in Marty Robbins' great 1960 country and western ballad "El Paso," it seems fitting to feature that tune. At 4:38 "El Paso" stands out for being extraordinarily long for a 45 single and for Grady Martin's outstanding guitar work. I've found two bonuses to share. In 1966 Robbins released an even longer 8 minute song "Faleena" and in 1976 a sequel to both "El Paso City."
