Sony's Love Songs highlights 14 tracks that cover the laid-back, romantic tunes Marty Robbins recorded during his lengthy tenure with Columbia, including the standards "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You," "I'm in the Mood for Love," "Misty," "All the Way," and two songs closely associated with Elvis, "Love Me Tender" and "Can't Help Falling in Love." With the wealth of Robbins material to choose from, this compilation fails to capture his first-rate romantic tracks; at the very least they could have included his 1970 hit "My Woman, My Woman, My Wife." The single-disc All-Time Greatest Hits is still the best introduction to Marty Robbins.
